On a beautiful, warm Thursday evening in early August, sixteen Lake Quivira ladies each teamed with a guest for the First Annual “Queen of the Court” Member/Guest tennis tournament. The 32 women played six matches of round robin doubles with Nancy Wedel and her partner Bree Honer emerging as champions. Amy Kentfield, creator and organizer of the event, and Mona Ricke were runners-up. The ladies all dressed up as their favorite “queens,” and the winners of the costume contest were Shelley Sneed and Crista McPherson, who were dressed as “Dairy” Queens!
This fall, Lake Quivira will have two ladies TenCap teams competing on Tuesday evenings. This summer was the first time the club had one team participating, and now just months later, is has two! Please stop by courts 3 and 4 any Tuesday evening around 6:30 to see one of these teams representing Lake Quivira. On courts 1 and 2, men’s league tennis will continue through late September.
Finally, the last two Saturday mornings of shot of the day and cardio are August 26 and September 9. I hope to see a big crowd at each!
