USTA Region 8 celebrated the second annual “Salute to Broward County Captains and Co-Captains” at the Club At Hawks Landing in Plantation the afternoon of Saturday, April 29.  Local league coordinator Lou Armstrong said the weather, facility, club staff, players, food, gift bags and raffle prizes were a winning combination for the event!

The 2nd annual Captains Appreciation Luncheon and Round Robin began with a welcome address from Region 8 Director of Tennis Rick Pardon.  Rick thanked the attendees for their dedication to league tennis and expressed the region’s appreciation for the job they have done to help grow tennis in Broward County.

The players gave the league coordinators a group thank you and a round of applause for organizing the event.  The 7.0 mixed doubles captain Tim Watts expressed his thanks.

“This is a good thing you guys (coordinators) do for us captains,” he said.  “On top of the great job you do in putting the league together!”

Local league coordinators Maria Miro and Linda Anderson, and volunteer Helga Immerfall manned the registration desk and conducted the raffle, awarding more than 30 lucky attendees with prizes generously donated by Ft. Lauderdale’s Match Point Tennis owner Joel Greenbaum and USTA Florida.  Paul Muldoon catered lunch and then joined the on-court fun.

“USTA Florida Region 8 – Broward County – is rapidly growing, creating an increase in organized competition and fun,” Lou said.  “With heartfelt appreciation, we salute the captains and co-captains of Broward County, without whom the leagues would not exist.  THANK YOU!”
