There were plenty of cheers, laughs and great points on the eve of the US Open Watch Party at the Tennis Coalition SF’s first ever Triples Tournament Fundraiser. Eight teams of all skill levels battled it out in a fast-paced, round-robin format at the Goldman Tennis Center on September 9th. As the name suggests, Triples involves three people on one side of the court at a given time, with one player at the net and two at the baseline. Players rotate positions after every point, and an orange compression ball is used to level the playing field.
“It was so much fun!”, said participant Sally Brien Holper. “Things moved quickly so there was never a dull moment, and the orange ball was a great equalizer which made for some great rallies.”
Congratulations to tournament champions Lou’s Lobbers. The team was undefeated in the round robin and had a decisive victory in the finals. Way to go!
