National Champions!

55___Over_8.0_Champions_Men

Marietta now can call one of its USTA league teams National Champions.  The Fair Oaks Tennis Center 55 & over 8.0 squad captured the top prize at the USTA National League Championships in Surprise, Arizona.

Representing the USTA Southern section after winning the sectional championship in September, the Georgia squad reached the final with a 2-1 semifinal victory over the Southwest section team (Chandler, Arizona).  Waiting for Captain Wayne Miller's Georgia team in the 8.0 men’s final was a strong Florida section team (Valrico, Florida).  After a hard fought, entertaining championship match, Georgia prevailed 2-1.

“It’s been a long road for us. We lost a match on Saturday morning and basically thought we were out of it,” said Miller. “We’re a strong team. We just kept fighting. We had a great time and a great bonding experience.”

Congratulations to the Fair Oaks Tennis Center squad:  (L to R in above photo):  Bruce McGinley, Wayne Miller (captain), Oakley Allen, Paul Gebert, Robert Harris, Jory Olsen, Donald Whitney, Craig Garrettson.
