April 27, 2005 09:50 AM

On April 10th USA Tennis Florida and District 13 (Charlotte, Lee, Hendry, Glades counties) kicked off their 25th Anniversary Celebration and Captains party at the Landings Tennis Club in Ft. Myers.

Linda Huber, Local League Coordinator, invited Captains from all of the Leagues: Adult, Senior, Super Senior, Super 70, Mixed, and Senior Mixed.  All Captains were welcomed with a Captains gift package consisting of 25th Anniversary Label Pins, 25th Anniversary Key Tags, and 25th Anniversary Window Decals.

Kiko Castillo, Director of Tennis at the Landings, also welcomed the Captains and then made court assignments and instructed them on the round robin tennis format.  Corey Springer, the Wilson Rep, supplied the Wilson giveaways.  Lee Redmond and Sam Chinego had demo racquets available for all of the players to try as they made their way to the 14 har-tru tennis courts.  After three rounds of tennis the players returned to the patio area to mix and mingle with fellow Captains and tell some of their stories about league play during the past 25 years of USTA League Tennis.  A catered buffet dinner was served in the Main Deck Restaurant.

The celebration was topped off with a fun raffle that ended with all 43 Captains receiving a gift from an assortment of 25th Anniversary watches, traveling bags, coolers, Captains hats, towels, digital camera, tee shirts, etc.

As the Captains headed out the door at the end of a great day of tennis, fun and camaraderie, they were all talking about and looking forward to having a 26th Anniversary Celebration in 2006
