After fighting some weather delays, the tennis portion of the Mesquite Senior Games was completed at Sun City Mesquite. Over 40 matches were played at both Hafen Park and the Sun City courts. The event coordinators would like to thank Alan Rasmussen, GM of Smith’s for the donation of water for the ‘Games’ as well as the Parks and Recreation Department and Sun City.
Our winners were not only from Mesquite but Reno, Utah and Wyoming as well. The Men’s Doubles had ten teams with the Gold going to Kenny Burton and Tom Prescott. The Silver was won by Gregg Cross and Bryan Curtis. The Bronze was a long three set marathon won by Kevin Flowers and Kevin Peters.
Our Women’s Doubles had the Gold awarded to Jodi Smith and Darcel Prescott, Silver to Dee Thorp and Lorna Brooks and Bronze to Lisa Good and Lois Gibson.
The Mixed Doubles resulted in another marathon of three sets to decide each medal. Chris Rumps and Bryan Curtis took the Gold with Darcel Prescott and William Glenn the Silver. The Bronze was awarded to Lorna and Bill Brooks.
