November 7 - 9, 2008 at Chicago North Shore clubs
Under weather conditions starting with some sun and warmth and quickly progressing to wind and cold, another weekend of superb paddle at the highest levels has come to an end in Chicago. Congratulations to all the winners!
In the women's draw, Number 5 seeds Mary Doten and Susie Keane captured the title in an exciting 3 set match against top seeds Bobo Delaney and Tonia Mangan.
Doten and Keane also defeated #1 seeds Delmonico-Main in the semis and #3 seeds Dardis-Shay in the quarters. Delaney-Mangan arrived at the finals by besting #6 seeds Ohlmuller-Prop in the semis and #7 seeds Manley-VanCalcar in the quarters.
All 8 seeded teams, which included both new combinations and long-time partnerships, all made it to the quarter-finals.

Proceeds from this year's tournament will go to: Evanston Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) .Founded in 1970 by parents of children with type 1 juvenile diabetes, JDRF has always focused on a single goal—accelerating research progress to cure diabetes and its devastating complications. Usually striking during childhood, this most severe form of the disease annually accounts for almost $100 billion in health care costs in the U.S. alone. Chosen by Barron's as one of only four charities that are leaders in efficiency and effectiveness, more than 80 percent of JDRF’s expenditures directly support research and research-related education.
The JDRF & CPTTC are both 503(c) organizations. The JDRF website for donations is: http://jdrf2.jdrfillinois.org/cgi-bin/WebObjects/jdrf.woa/wo/DonateStep1.wo
