Saturday, September 8 was the nationally televised women’s doubles championship game for the U.S. Open, one of the Grand Slams of Tennis. To celebrate the tennis match held in New York City, players of the Tennis Club at Robson Ranch held a tennis social for all club members.
Beginning at 8:00 a.m., players arrived at the courts to play mixed doubles social tennis on courts one and two. Players on court three played three sets, rotating partners among themselves. Friendly social competition was the name of the game this morning.
At noon, everyone gathered at the home of Paul and Linda Gayer for a potluck and to view the women’s doubles championship game between Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka, who defeated Serena 6-2, 6-4. About half of us were team Serena; the other half, team Naomi. It was quite an exciting, and somewhat controversial match between the two women and kept everyone watching every point!
Our next tennis social is between Robson and Quail Creek players, which will be on Saturday, October 20. Friday Night Tennis and a general membership meeting will be on Friday, October 26 and a tennis social between Robson and SunBird will be held on Saturday, November 3. Come join us!
