After winning our State Championships last month, the local tennis team I play on competed against the best teams from all the other states in our section. The prize included bragging rights…and a chance to compete in the National Championships being held in Hawaii later this year! That’s me on the right and my doubles partner, Dan, in the red hat. Many thanks to Dan’s friend, George Ellin (an excellent photographer as well) for taking a few shots of our match. Our team did fairly well until the 100+ degree heat got to us on the 3rd day. One of our teammates got so dehydrated he had to be taken to the hospital after his match for an IV injection! Needless to say, we didn’t win the tournament. Still, we had a great time competing and playing the game we love.
