Fam­i­lies and friends have a ball on court

Midwest Times - - SPORT -

Luke Ertzen, pres­i­dent of the Spald­ing Park Ten­nis Club, was amazed.

Not so that his son Zak and his wife Stacey played ten­nis to­gether on Satur­day — but the fact they are still talk­ing. “It’s most pleas­ant,” Ertzen said.

So was the fact that about 40 peo­ple played in the Mitchell and Brown-spon­sored mixed dou­bles tour­na­ment.

“There were fam­i­lies, friends and a lot of fun,” Ertzen said.

“We had four di­vi­sions and about 20 pairs.

“It was re­ally great for the club.

“There were a few nine and 10 year-olds and a dad-daugh­ter com­bi­na­tion in Ju­lian and Rhi­an­non Jones.”

Zak Ertzen po­si­tions him­self to send the ball sail­ing to the other side of the court.
