The Sheboygan County Tennis Association held the 17th Annual SCTA Family Challenge Cup Saturday, March 9 at Sports Core in Kohler.
The Family Challenge Cup consisted of round robin doubles play with teams made up of family members – Mother/Son, Father/Daughter, Brother/Sister, Husband/Wife, etc. – and tennis trivia as well as raffle prizes. This year, 18 teams were competing for the traveling Family Challenge Cup trophy. Fun was had by all!
This year’s results were as follows:
1st Place: Ashu & Anushka Mangal (father/daughter team) 176 points
2nd Place: Dean & Sam Delasanta (father/son team) 152 points
3rd Place: Dharmesh & Ashwini Murthy (father/daughter team) 144 points
4th Place : Mei & George Phillips (brother/sister team) 143 points
5th Place : Jason & Alex Unger (father/son team) 135 points
The SCTA would like to thank their partners, sponsors, and donors who helped make the event a huge success and who support youth tennis in Sheboygan County: The Sports Core, Whistling Straits & Blackwolf Run golf courses, Babolat, USBank, The Blend Family, Wisconsin Tennis Association, and Tietz’s Piggly Wiggly.
The mission of the SCTA is to promote tennis, to encourage sportsmanship, and to provide low cost tennis opportunities for the youth of Sheboygan County. Proceeds from this fundraiser event go directly towards offsetting the costs and fees associated with junior tennis programs in Sheboygan County—Sheboygan County Junior Team Tennis (team tennis for ages 12yo & over), Sheboygan County Midwest Youth Team Tennis (team tennis for ages 12yo & under), SCTA/Sports Core Winter Jr Team Tennis League, and the Doug Opel Memorial/Sheboygan County Jr Tennis Championships.
