PROVINCETOWN — The Provincetown Tennis Club (PTC) finished up its members tournament last week.
Maria Cirino defeated Judy Mencher in two sets, 6-2, 6-3, in the women’s singles final, while Brad Howarth defeated Michael Cummings in sets of 7-6, 4-6, (10-8) in the super tiebreaker.
The women’s doubles final was won by Kim Cromwell and Anne Paradis. The pair defeated Deb Shapiro and Karen Shaw by default, as the losing team dropped out due to injury.
Doug Coelho and Deb Shapiro defeated Maria Cirino and Joe Hilton in the mixed doubles final by sets of 0-6, 6-3, (10-8). In the men’s doubles final, Jonathan Hamilton and Doug Walker defeated Doug Coelho and Joe Hilton by a score of 2-6, 6-4, (10-4).
Hamilton, who is a member at the club, said the tournament had an exciting finish.
“The men’s doubles final was a terrific match and a comeback victory for us,” he said.
The club live-streamed all finals matches on Facebook, because visitors were not allowed to watch in person due to Covid restrictions. Hamilton and Doug Gavel, a member of the PTC board of directors, provided commentary, although Gavel was on his own during the matches Hamilton was involved in. Hamilton said live-streaming tennis activities may become a thing of the future for the club.
Tennis lessons at the PTC will continue through September. Visit provincetowntennis.org for more information. —Ryan Fitzgerald
