May 2018 MVTC Singles Tournament Summary

For the MVTC 2018 Singles tournament, we had a good turnout despite some last minute dropouts. The MVTC continues to evolve to meet the needs of its members. Players today want a half-day tournament that is quick, fast, and fun.

This year we introduced a super fast format: Each round was 1 Winner-take-all No-Ad Set. No room for error and no time for a comeback. Everyone seemed satisfied with the amount of tennis as no one opted for the Pro-Set 8-game option for the finals. This made for more rapid results and having the tournament finished by 12:30 pm, a 1st time for the club.

Prizes included our traditional Swetka gift cards, and tasty food was provided by Jill N.
