      Men's 3.5 Tennis

      The Dunes Men’s 3.5 team played their last match of the season on Monday March 12th at the Vineyards. The Dunes Men’s 3.5 team dodged the rain and withstood the wind to win all 4 courts over the Vineyards to end the season on a winning note! Stan Dameron and David Orloff won 6-4, 6-4 displaying consistency and great teamwork! Dan DiBuono and Jack Phillips won 6-1, 6-4 over their opponents with some great shots and volleys during the match. Steve Pettit and Joe Ford won 6-1, 6-1 with a variety of spin shots and slices that kept their Vineyards opponents off balance throughout the match.  Joe Tull and Bert Herzog won 6-1, 6-3 with some great consistency and teamwork. They seved the ball well throughout the entire match!  
      Thanks to all the Dunes Men’s 3.5 team members for their contributions and teamwork this winter season!

      Men's 3.0 Tennis

      The Men's 3.0 Winter Tennis Team finished the season with a strong 3-1 victory  against Longshore Lake, and very narrowly missed the playoffs, despite tying for second place with a 7-2 record. On a beautiful, sunny afternoon, playing at Longshore Lake, our court one team, Garon & Schmitz, got back on the winning track and solidly beat their opponents 1 & 2. On court 2, Burns & English, played an extremely competitive match against a younger team and lost 5 & 4.  As a result of injuries and some players not being available, we tried a new pairing on Court three, Dorshorst & Scharff, who played a long, tight match and finally prevailed 3 & 4. Our court 4 team, Cranfill & Horowitz had the easiest afternoon because Longshore Lake defaulted court 4.

      This victory ended a very successful Winter Tennis Season, which saw us tied for 2nd place with a solid 7-2 record.....along with Vanderbilt & Pelican Marsh > BUT during the season we lost more individual matches, so very, very narrowly missed the playoffs. > Vanderbilt (27-9) make the playoffs and join Heritage Bay, who finished the season undefeated. > Our individual matches ended 22-14, one behind Pelican Marsh (23-13).   Its disappointing that we didn't make the playoffs,  everyone gave 110% and we played some excellent tennis. 
      Most importantly, I think everyone enjoyed themselves and felt part of our Men's Tennis Team. This season the Team Tennis was the most competitive I can remember, with a lot of the matches in the division being decided by sets and/or games. I think this is great for the league. With the upcoming major construction project at The Dunes, no one knows about the status of our courts for the Fall League.  I'm here year round now, so I'll keep our team updated, and it's my intention to register a Fall Team, if we have somewhere to play.

      Look after yourselves and have a great summer.
