Despite several bouts of bad weather, the Los Alamos Tennis Club’s 5e The annual Joel Williams Tennis Tournament was held July 28-31 on the grounds of Urban Park and Pinon Park. While the weather could have (and sometimes literally!) put a damper on the festivities and the game, the over 35 attendees collectively enjoyed over 60 tennis and barbecue matches that took place over the weekend.

Participants’ skills ranged from former college and semi-professional players to those who played recreationally. Interested spectators and lower level players alike were thrilled to have the opportunity to witness top level competition on our local grounds as the 4.5+ male singles and doubles competitors battled for dominance. For recreational players, the tournament was a wonderful opportunity to meet other players and play several matches.

The Los Alamos Tennis Club would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the following wonderful people, whose dedication to supporting tennis in our community and hosting the tournament each year is second to none: David Rutherford and Nicola Winch of Atomic Tennis for organizing of the tournament and to Bob and Sue Tonelli for organizing the barbecue for everyone! We would also like to thank the following sponsors for their generosity in providing prizes: Atomic Tennis, Diadem Sports, Tecnifibre, Bathtub Row Brewing Co-Op and Metzgers Hardware.
