2017 Tennis News
Congratulations to Our Doubles Championship
On August 19th, the Field Club sponsored its annual Men’s and Women’s Doubles Tournament. Seventeen teams withstood the heat to complete in this traditional event. Ladies entries participated in A and B divisions, while men played in one. The competition at all levels was challenging, but good sportsmanship was displayed by all.
Many thanks to Ann Boisvert for her effective placement of competitors. Without her help, the event would not have taken place.
Congratulations to the winners: Women’s B Division Champions Judy D’Angelo and Mary Dumala; Women’s A Division Champions Marna Shields and Kate Morneau, and Men’s Champions Dave Fuller and Larry Eagan.
Thanks to all who participated and made this a successful event. — Lora Arnold
Founders Cup Mixed Doubles Championship
The Annual Founders Cup Mixed Doubles Championship was held on September 9 under blue skies amidst perfect tennis weather. Nine teams competed as Annie managed the draw of eight game pro-sets for the first two matches, with two out of three sets for the finals. Everyone played two matches, then broke for a delicious lunch from Grapevine. Play continued after lunch with consolation rounds and the finals.
Our championship match featured exciting points from the team of Sam Edwards and Will Chen competing against Katie Kroon and Kent Griffiths. Sam and Will prevailed with a 6-3, 6-4 win. Congratulations to our champions and finalists!
We had a special trophy presentation to the champions and finalists (who each received an engraved take-home trophy). Before presenting the beautiful silver Field Club trophy to Sam and Will, Sue Warner, one of our founders, shared stories of other founding members, to whom we are all grateful.
Thanks to everyone who came out for a day of great tennis, including players and spectators!
— Connie and Tom Gould
And the Winners are…
Congratulations to our 2017 Singles Tennis Champions, Sherri Ehrenberg and Jeff Morneau, as well as the runners up, Marja Barr and Per Nilsson. Job well done!
Daiquiri Doubles 2017
The Daiquiri Doubles Mixer, now in its 7th consecutive year at The Field Club, was held on Sunday July 16th. The day was clear but hot, allowing for the thirst and desire for daiquiris to build. Both old and new members got to socialize and play some good tennis followed by daiquiris prepared by mixologist Dave Pleet, with his special recipe including hand-picked strawberries and homegrown mint. Forty members attended the event and all clay courts were used. There was a wide range of tennis talents, but all seemed to excel at daiquiri consumption! It was quite a “spirited group,” who seemed to have fun mixing things up. Hope to see you all out there next year! — David and Jackie Pleet
US Open Bus Trip a Success!
The US Open bus trip was a big success. Forty-four of our fellow Field Club friends took a nice bus down to the US Open on September 1st. Many of us saw Sloane Stephens, Roger Federer, Venus and other awesome players play amazing tennis! It was a beautiful day, and we had access to all the courts to see doubles and singles play. We were also able to watch players, including Federer, on the practice court. In between watching famous tennis players, we cooled off by sipping Honey Deuces, the official US Open drink! If you could not make it this year, plan ahead for next year! – Mona Swanson
Davis Cup Review
The premier event of the summer was held on Saturday, June 17, at the Field Club. Although the weather threatened, the Davis Cup was competed without a problem. Tricia and Mike Freedman, Jamie and Elyse Dunbar, Lori and John McMahon, Kate Morneau and Adam Steinberg served as captains of teams USA, Brazil, France, and Greece, respectively. Our thanks to all of them for volunteering. Team USA was the overwhelming victor. Congrats to Mike and Tricia and their team.
All levels of play were represented with some exciting and competitive tennis witnessed by spectators. A total of sixty-three members participated and enjoyed a delicious lunch catered by The Grapevine Restaurant. – Lora Arnold

Greetings from the Field Club Tennis Committee
The tennis committee is getting a head start on the scheduling events for the summer. With the help of willing volunteers, we try to schedule a mixer almost every weekend throughout the summer. The most popular is the Davis Cup in June, which attracts members of varying abilities but all with enthusiasm. Please consider participating this year. We will be recruiting captains shortly. If you would like to be considered for this important commitment, please let either Kim or Lora know.
We are hopeful that many who sponsored an event last year will continue to do so. We welcome new input from other members, as well. We encourage you to team with another partner to organize a mixer.
To get ahead of the busy summer season, a notice will be posted in the Paddle Hut to sign-up for one of the mixer weekends. We are looking forward to serving you and providing an entertaining and productive summer. — Kim Burns and Lora Arnold
