7.0 65+ Men – Congrats to the Men’s 7.0 team for winning their league. It was an “all in the family” kind of league since the only other team was also from the PHTH. So we win no matter what! Great job to all the guys for playing an all-PHTH league, but the team captained by Tino Dibattista moved on to Indianapolis for playoffs. On day one they lost to Ohio and Indiana. But on day two they defeated the other team from Indiana in a close match with two courts going to a super-breaker! Amazing season, Men’s 7.0!
On the team: Captain – Tino Dibattista, Greg Gale, Gary Gorski, Rick Scavarda, Jim Charron, John Johnson, Jeff Blackman
