Bailey & Lauer Repeat at the Peachtree Invitational

JANUARY 19, 2010

The 5th Annual PI, again hosted at Cherokee Town Club, set a new record with a sold out draw of 32 teams using all 7 cts in town. Atlanta was most flattered to host 8 players from IL, NY, MD, NJ & PA to compete including Fritz & Sandra Odenbach & Laurie & David (Jr) Hissey as well as Greg Moore, holder of several National Championships. Tournament Chair, Peter Lauer, remarked during a toast at Saturday night's party, that the goal is to someday host the Nationals in Atlanta!

Defending champions, Jay Bailey & Peter Lauer, retained their title for the 5th year running, though the finals was inconclusive at best as Greg Moore & Steve Lauria of NJ had to retire due to a calf injury Steve suffered early in the 2nd set. The enthusiasm, friendly competition and party was platform tennis at its best! Atlanta & the South is on the map and growing every year - watch out for Winter & Rollauer - 3rd place team this year.
