More than 125 USA Tennis Florida District 8 captains, co-captains and players gathered on June 18 to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of USA League Tennis at the Key Biscayne Tennis Center (home to NASDAQ100.)

The Silver anniversary party, organized by District 8 League Coordinator Dolly Morris, also served as a 25th anniversary celebration with the USTA. Captains, co-captains and players who participated in district playoffs in the adult 2005 fall and spring leagues were in attendance.

As the district playoff matches were taking place, others competed in round-robin team play directed by Tom Gainor. Following the friendly competition and morning session of playoffs, the day progressed with a luncheon buffet provided by Dolly and several of the team captains.

In addition to tennis and lunch, raffle drawings were organized by region 8 director Rick Pardon and Community Coordinator Cathy Nordlund.  A special thanks goes to Ralph Martins from GT Sports who donated several tennis bags. USA Tennis Florida also donated many items for the raffle. Pam Bruno, captain of the women's 2.5 San Souci team, gave facial demonstrations and taught the men how to use face products.

This day of fun at the Key Biscayne Tennis Center, including competitive tennis, good food and camaraderie was made possible by Dolly Morris and USA Tennis Florida.

Congratulations to the women’s 2.5 Moore Park Divas; 3.0 Flamingo Spinners – May Mallouh; 3.5 Miami Shores Country Club – Syl David, men’s 3.5 Doral Country Club – Jose Rocca; 4.0 San Souci Tennis – Joel Levine; and the 4.5 Doral Spa & Country Club – Gerardo Guanrino.  These teams now advance to the Florida regional playoffs in Weston to represent region 8.  Good luck!
