Jul 02, 2018 04:54AM ● By Theresa Gilman

Mixed Doubles Competitors from Tewksbury: Team Sessa and Team Keene.

(Editor's Note: the following information was provided by the Friends of Tewksbury Tennis.)

The Recap:
A total of 48 matches were played with 91 participants ranging in age from 12 to 74 years old. The weather mostly cooperated, making for great tennis all weekend. Trull Brook Golf and Tennis Center graciously opened their facilities for us on Saturday afternoon and evening due to  rain showers. The level of play continues to rise each year. This year there were numerous match tie breakers extending the play late into the evening Friday and Saturday.  Local high schools and communities were well represented with players and coaches participating from Andover, Billerica, Chelmsford, Lowell, Melrose, Nashua, Tewksbury, Winchester, Wilmington and Westford.
