Help Out with the Intermediates Tournament

Bill O'Brien has, for years, donated time to running the paddle league and local tournaments. Once each year, he reaches out to avid paddle players to join his effort. Here's a message from our own HPTA president about a tournament being held over the weekend of November 17-18:

"Guys, every year Hinsdale runs the Illinois Intermediates Tournament as a way to give something back to this sport we love so much. This year, Bill O'Brien will once again be taking the lead on this tournament, but he needs someone to volunteer to take and record the entries. The good part about this task is that you can do it and still play in the tournament because your job is over about 3 days before the tournament starts.

All you need to do is to receive the entry forms and checks in the mail and then record the data on an Excel spreadsheet that Bill will provide. That's about it. And you will be following in the footsteps of guys like Bernie Hancock, Mike Williams, Ed Dunphy, Ed Usher, Jay Pollitt, Ed Varin and several others who have done this over the years.

If you are willing to volunteer, or have any questions, don't hesitate to call Bill at 630-325-6827 or e-mail him at "
