Seniors, still?

A bit of a yawner this time of year.  Nothing really going on except for 4.5 over 40s finishing up their flight play matches. 


Oak Creek/Sweeney cruises 4-1 over TBar/Fikes with Fikes and Pascal pulling out a third set tie breaker to keep from being swept.


Lifetime/Arcaria sweeps Greenhill/Rossouw with Rossouw defaulting two lines.  He has 21 people on the roster and he defaulted two lines?  Rossouw's playoff chances are all but done at this point.


In a Brookhaven intra-club challenge, Bartlett's team took down Harllee's team 3-2.  That was a big win for Bartlett, moving his guys into third and dropped Harllee into fourth and in danger of missing the playoffs. 


High Point/Martin lost to JCC/Reiman 3-2 and likely took itself out of the playoff hunt as well. 
Reiman even pulls out a third set tie breaker himself at line three doubles to secure the victory.


And in the battle for the basement, previously winless Greenhill/Ohl edged Gleneagles/Juhn 3-2 to pass them in the standings based on lines.  Ohl's guys sweep singles and in what is becoming a trend, another captain wins a big match and clinches the victory.



In other news, 55s has now wrapped up as well. 

9.0 finished as follows: Oak Creek/Sweeney, Brookhaven/Bartlett, Gleneagles/Juhn, TBar/Hackett, John Paul II/Gradick and Eldorado/Entrekin. 
8.0 finished as follows: Greenhill/Kayser, Springpark/Blesi, Brookhaven/Bartlett, Lifetime/Heflin, Canyon Creek/Rainwater, TBar/Snow, Brookhaven/Tarangioli, Stonebridge/Cummings and High Point/Meyers.

So far it looks like Sweeney and Bartlett are having good senior seasons.

  8. Dear Alan,
    Could you please allow someone else to enjoy going to sectionals? This is getting ridiculous. I have been playing 12 years now and have yet to beat an SP TEAM. Now you had TWO in the 8.0 finals? What gives? Please let me know where to contact you so that I may cement a roster spot for 2018. I hear in 2019 they will just pick a team to represent Dallas in sectionals, no league, no pilot tourney. SP will get one ping pong ball and all others get 1 milllion. The drawing will take place in a covert location. The winning captain will be notified who goes to sectional. In the meantime I will sign up for drills and events at your club. I hear the instruction and the fees are the best in town.
    thank you
    DH

  9. GOOD! If Alan done then his biatch slave Kelley will be done. Over last 7-10 years their domination has prevailed. As a captain AA is second to none. He develops talent like no other. MK is the best at his craft and somehow defys the odds, the haters and the DTA. I don't like either but their success numbers are sick. Don't think you will see this type of winning percentage again in a lifetime. I think the "powers that be" will be glad to see them go. Springpark has become a fixture of mixed superiority. As far as longevity, like em or hate em, there will never be another dynasty like the one in Richardson. Thanks guys but as a club player wanting just one sectional appearance "I will be glad to see ya go!". Again, thank you AA for the memories but there is a new Sheriff in town. You guys are done! ..... oooops. I said that this year, last year, year before that, year before the year before that... uh I mean it this time ALAN A!

  10. My question is why is there not a "country club" league and a "city park" mixed league? Seems like each could send a team to sectionals and everyone is happy. Why has no one ever mentioned this? I have NEVER seen it even considered. You could easily have 5-7 teams in each league and prolly more with the clubbers because SP couldn't play so more people would feel they have a chance. Seems like a no brainer.

  11. Why isn't there a competitive advancing league and a fun non advancing social league. This way people wouldn't get so butt hurt and just play for fun.

    1. There is. It's called USTA and TCD. People are still complaining in the social league.

  12. 10:25 that is a great idea. That should be brought to the DTA's attention.

  13. Could you then play a Dallas social league and a competetive FW league in same flight? Could you just have a members only, Dallas, non competitive social league? Or how about a Dallas, competetive, non social league, where practice and lessons and going to the gym and eating right makes a difference. Nah, that wouldn't be fair to those that pay big money to join a country club. Nah, Best thing is to make up rules, nationals split up, etc. and bogus suspensions to even all out. Hmmm, still doesn't work. Let me ponder on this awhile. Will get back to ya'.
