The 36th Annual Mixed Doubles Celebrity Tennis Tournament did not conclude on Labor Day as has been it’s history but the end results were very similar.
Once again Dom Costa claimed championship honors with this year’s partner LaWade Garvis, who is also no stranger to the winner’s platform.
The tournament was delayed by what has to be one of the rainiest summers in Pittsburgh history. But once back on track the field emerged with the same great play and highly competitive level as always.
With the regular local legends in full swing the field witnessed an influx of new and upcoming talent.
Rounding out the awardees placement was Nick Rhodes and Joyce Scott in secnd place and Bud Craig and Lorna Secrest in third.
As always the case the tournament was co-hosted by the Highland Park Tennis Club under the direction of President Fred Crawford and directed by veteran player and coaches Donna Bey and Jim Quigley.
Special thanks go out to this year’s sponsors (proceeds benefit The Champions upcoming Toys for Tots Program) Highmark, Chuck Saunders Charities, Savoy Restaurant, CitiParks, Bob Burt Photography, Penn Avenue McDonalds and the New Pittsburgh Courier.
