The first annual SPUD (Special Populations Unified Doubles) event was held at Centennial Sportsplex on Saturday, July 26 with players, partners and parents from Middle and West Tennessee. Competition took the form of a round robin tournament with a special populations athlete teamed with a partner. A Skills and Thrills event was also held, with prizes and eager participation.
A pizza party followed an awards ceremony and the whole event was characterized by a spirit of fun and excitement. The tournament was unbelievably close, but the winners in a final tiebreaker were Sean and Andy Druffel.
Event sponsors were Tennis Nashville, Wilson, Southerns Patrons and Holiday Inn Vanderbilt.
We're all looking forward to next year's event!
