Full Draws & Results

Saturday, December 19th-Final Day Main Draw

It was a long week for players from all over the world, and not because they were playing tennis all day. The rain kept the original schedule from being followed, but the "Little Mo" International Championships still went on and all the players in the 8 and under, 9 and under, 10 and under and 11 and under age groups of this event got to go home with trophies.

This tournament never would have been completed without the very hard work of Tournament Chairwoman Carol Weyman, Director Rick Workman and Referee Karol Wise (above at tournament desk with players), all of whom made the shortened event (thanks to two and a half days of rain) still competitive and fun for all. A special mention to ("Little Mo") Maureen Connolly Brinker's daughter, Cindy Brinker Simmons, who not only presented each player with a trophy, but also gave them a personal, inspirational message.

Despite the rain, there were hundreds of smiling kids (and parents) thanks to the tournament site, Club Med Sandpiper, which opened a week earlier than expected for the tournament despite not having completed their renovations, kept everyone well-fed, well-entertained and flying high on the trapeeze -- though I never did make it to circus tent! We all look forward to returning next year.

Happy Holidays, Marcia Frost
