Successful defense of titles was the theme of the day in 50+ and 70+

MARCH 21, 2010


Cousins Scott Bondurant and Tim McAvoy successfully defended their APTA 50+ National Championship over Chip Morrow and Peter Redpath. The hot weather seemed to have had  more impact on the strategy of the match than the fact that both Tim McAvoy and Peter Redpath were hobbled by leg injuries incurred during the semi finals. McAvoy (APTA President), Chip Morrow and Peter Redpath all hail from the Philadelphia area while Bondurant is from Winnetka, Il.
