Region I News

FEBRUARY 25, 2010

It was another brisk weekend for the annual Jansen Hospice and Palliative Care Mixed Platform Tennis Tournament that took place in Bronxville, New York, during the weekend of January 30-31.

This tournament attracted 54 hard-hitting, talented teams from New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. This year, Judy Arden and Rodrigo Schtsherbyna defended their title, beating Christine Reiss and Zander Comfort in the well- attended finals.

This popular event was chaired, for the first time, by Bronxville resident John Stoffel. (Sugar Generaux had chaired the event for the past 15 years and has remained active in its organization.) The tournament included a challenging draw, great lunch, festive cocktail party at Fox Meadow Tennis Club in Scarsdale, and spectacular paddle action. With the help of generous players, a supportive community, court sponsorships, and silent auction donations, the net proceeds to Jansen was over $11,000.
