Hinsdale MIXED Tournament

A fun and competitive night of paddle was had by all at the Annual Hinsdale Mixed Doubles Tournament on Saturday, February 26th. Tricia Enright returned after missing last year due to injury – to reclaim the B draw crown with her husband Bill. They won a hard fought – and wet – finals match over Cathleen and Mark Robinson. The next runners up were Bridget and Mike Keifer who beat Kristen Klebenow and Cristophe Jeannin in another exciting match. Lots of fun was had both on and off the courts as we mixed with both old and new friends, welcoming Pat and Camey Walker and Chris and Carol Wittemann to their first Mixed Doubles event.

For the A draw we had some bad luck in timing this year – as the entire Usher clan was skiing in Colorado knocking out half the draw. We ended up with only two teams so we had an exhibition final where Mary and Gary Doten prevailed against John and Margaret Hawn.

We look forward to seeing all these players again on the courts during the women’s and men’s Hinsdale tournament on March 18th and 19th.
