For the second year in a row, the Slammin’ Arm ladies tennis team found themselves in a familiar position.
This past weekend, the team of Loree Boyd, Marietjie du Plessis, Shannon Hecker, Cynthia Langford, Deedee Shattock, Marianne van Buskirk and Barb Waring represented the Interior region in the 3.5 category of the Miele Ladies Team Tennis Provincial Championships.
The tournament kicked off under stormy skies in Kelowna at the Okanagan Mission Tennis Club on Friday evening.
Team tennis matches are played in a best-of-three series consisting of one singles match and, if needed, two doubles matches where the other four players must compete.
Team Slammin’ Arm finished the round robin on top of the table, easily qualifying for a spot in the final match.
Meeting Team Slammin’ Arm in the final from the Lower Mainland was the Tsawwassenettes from Tsawwassen.
Team Slammin’ Arm could not repeat their strong round-robin performance against Tsawwassen in the final.
After finishing first at last year’s provincials, Team Slammin’ Arm had to settle for second place in this year’s event.
