Shelter Harbor Inn Shoreline Classic

JIM DEY
WESTERLY, RI,
MARCH 28-29, 2009

Shelter Harbor Inn We had a very exciting end to the American Platform Tennis Association Season on March 28th & 29th. The men’s tournament on Saturday had 15 teams and the mixed doubles on Sunday had 12 teams.

In the men’s semifinals Bill Saunders & Charlie Short won an exciting match over Marc Porter & Steve Heath and Ned Handy & Dan McCormick won an equally exciting match over Pete Harvey & Geoff Cartier. In the finals Saunders & Short prevailed in another great match beating Handy & McCormick 6-4, 7-5.

A very fun cocktail party was held at Innkeeper Jim Dey’s house following the men’s finals.

The following day under some adverse weather conditions and an hour delay, we managed to get all the matches off. Some matches were played in showery conditions but others were just fine (especially the finals).

In the semifinals Kristi Martin and Geoff Cartier beat Rick and Betsy Edie and Wendy and her brother Joe O’Brien beat Caroline & Steve Charest.

A great final was played with Martin and Carier prevailing over the O’Brien’s 3-6 6-4 6-3. It was exceptionally exciting to see a 1st year player Kristy Martin playing such an incredible match.
