NYJTL’s Doubles by the Dunes Championship is an afternoon of tennis competition, lunch, drinks and a Calcutta auction. The 2016 Championship took place on August 13th at the East Hampton Indoor Tennis Club in East Hampton, New York.

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 1.48.22 PMAll players, men and women, and all levels were invited to participate! Players entered with a partner, brought a pro as a partner, or entered alone, and then were matched with a partner. Teams are handicapped to even out the competition, and bisques are awarded to be used as points at strategic moments in a match. All teams were “auctioned off” before the tournament began, and half of the Calcutta proceeds went the winning “owners” while the other half to benefit NYJTL.

For teams who entered the competition, a tax-deductible entry fee of $1000 per team included lunch, an afternoon of tennis, and the opportunity to participate in the calcutta.co chairs and finalists

Up to twenty doubles teams competed and everyone played at least 3 hours! Members of the winning team and the runners-up each received a trophy, and all participants received a personal commemorative gift.

Proceeds from the event support NYJTL’s programs and help make a difference in the lives of children across New York City.
