Double The Pleasure
Manursing Island Club’s Ingrid Lopp and Ana Cibilis defeated Rye Racquet’s Corinna Bode and Joy Cummiskey to win the MITL Barbara Williams President’s Cup July 10 at Fairview Country Club. The match could hardly have been closer: 6-1, 2-6, 7-6 (8-6).
The win capped a particularly successful run for Lopp who won the MITL Paddle Tennis President’s Cup earlier in the year with Kathy Hobbins. As far as anyone at MITL can recall, no other player has ever won both cups, and certainly not in the same year.
Lopp, whose father taught tennis, said, “I love the competition, but everyone also has fun and the sportsmanship among teams and players is remarkable.”
Cheers to that!
