The Dunewood Tennis Open, a tradition held on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend, started under a grey sky with twenty-four players. The players were matched up for an action packed and high-spirited doubles competition. As always, family and friends and family cheered from their beach chairs along Central Walk.
The finals were held late Saturday afternoon. Rich Perna and Marty Mark battled Peter Taub and Wayne Glaubinger. It was Glaubinger’s first opportunity to take home a Dunewood Open Championship trophy; a prize that he has been seeking for at least sixteen years. The Dunewood community was delighted and perhaps a little bit relieved with the result. It was a fun match with Perna, Mark, Taub and Glaubinger. The final score was 8-0 with Taub and Glaubinger who took home the finals trophy.
