CWU’s tennis club hosts the 10th Anniversary Alumni tournament this Saturday May 20. It starts at 8 a.m. and runs all day which is open to everyone.

The Alumni Doubles tournament highlights the 10th year of the club being active.  Experience isn’t needed for this club, nor for the alumni tournament. Doubles teams from multiple colleges will be present, while at the same time it will also be an open community event.  Free t-shirts will be distributed to participants.

Dylan Call, a senior and the current club president supports team efforts not just individual achievements.

“Being in a club on the less aggressive side we have fun traveling and being a team at a higher level,” Call said. “Our team likes spending time together socially”

Lack of team registrations and weather restraints forced the delay of upcoming competition on May 6.

“Last year’s tournament didn’t go well because of the rainy weather and problems with organization where there was an issue with reserving courts,” Call said.

Nick Paulay, a junior and the future club president has four years of experience under his belt.

“The 10th Anniversary tournament is meant to be a fun tournament, hoping to bring the community together,” Paulay said.

According to Paulay, the team is fresh from an appearance at the University of Washington (UW) tournament the previous week.

  “The three traveling teams competed against tough competition, beating Eastern Washington University (EWU), then losing to UW and powerhouse Western Washington University (WWU),” Paulay said.
