Riggio Father/Son Team Claimed Title at Fourth Annual Average Joe

November 20, 2016
Essex, CT

The Average Joe series continues to attract a great group of players in the B/C range, although a few may be under-valuing their talent. All of the participants raised the average and deserve congratulations. A large Newport contingent came and represented well. Tennis pros Kristian Larson and Gavin Davison, from Stamford, just took up the sport a month before the tournament. Not sure they will be Average Joes next year. Jerry Porter ventured down from Stonington and Adam Nolan jumped in last minute from Hamden. 

To the Essex boys who came early, stayed late, cleaned the courts and the hut, Tournament Director Peter Evans says, “I could not have pulled this off without them!”

Main Draw: Jeff Riggio/Tom Riggio def. Peter Rogers/Joe Trausch, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4.
Consolation: Gavin Davison/Kristian Larson def. Peter Alofsin/Eoin Howlett, 6-4, 6-2.
Consolation Reprieve: Charley Beal/Nicholas Bea def. Mike Carr/Peter Evans, 6-2, 6-2.
