Doubles by the Dunes
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.
All 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.
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.
The 2016 registration is closed, please check back in 2017.
