A steamy Sunday at Delcastle Tennis Center was the setting for the local USTA Adult League Playoffs for men and women’s teams of all levels – with the winners advancing to district play in Princeton. Sunday’s matches were highlighted by an impossibly close, multi match point third-set tiebreaker in which Dana Walker and Keith Richard managed to eek by Brian Vincent and Satheesh Kumar Swaminathan 16-14 to give their Newark team a 3-2 victory over the perennially dominant Mauraders.
Congratulations to the Delaware District USTA 18 and Over teams advancing to Sectional Championships:
2.5 Women—Bevans, 3.0 Women—Racquettes ; 3.0 Men—Penn Oaks
