Organized by Senior and Super Sr. Local League Coordinator, Ginger Ayres of Sarasota, the Region 5 Ladies Senior League Luncheon took place April 14 at the beautiful Laurel Oak Country Club.  Ginger has hosted the luncheon at Laural Oak for 16 years in a row.  The event was held in appreciation for all players’ participation in senior leagues this season. Over 150 senior, super senior and super 70’s women league players attended and received USTA Florida team awards for their dedication to USTA League Tennis.

Free giveaways and fabulous gifts were collected throughout the year specifically to use for door prizes and presents at the luncheon. Those who were lucky enough to have their numbers drawn walked away with memorabilia that included everything from hats, apparel, kitchen utensils, dog bedding, cooler, glasses, games and tennis balls!

The event is a favorite for many players in the Sarasota area and something they look forward to every year.

“The enthusiasm in this group was contagious and it was very heartwarming to see and feel the camaraderie among these senior and super senior ladies who love the sport of tennis so much,” said Susie Bessire, USTA Florida Tennis Program Coordinator, Southwest Coast. “This year, there were five teams that competed in the Super 70’s 3.5 division and Ginger hopes to add at least two more Super 70’s teams next year in the 3.0 division.”

Great job, ladies, on an eventful season and an even more successful post-season wrap-up!
