The 2009 Northwest Open saw a lot of new faces, from Mens Open to Mens 60+ C/D to Women’s D! It was a busy time in a small space. Thanks to everyone who participated – both in the tournament and in our fundraising efforts for the Washington Junior players. Big Winners in the Pro/Open Draws were Joey Lakowske taking first over Jimmy Lowe in the Men’s division, and Vicki Panzeri solidly winning in the finals of the Women’s division over Wanda Collins. Congrats to everyone in each division on your excellent play and efforts throughout the weekend.

Those of you who donate and/or bid on items in our silent auction make a big difference in our ability to help our juniors pay for entry fees, travel expenses and basic equipment (racquets, shoes, eyeguards) throughout the season. The final tally was $1,312.00 from the auction. Lanette Allen created our first ever bake sale for kids that raised an additional $142.00 (Thanks Lanette!) for a total of $1,454.00 this year. Thanks from every junior player that will benefit!
