by staff

The summerlong men’s singles and doubles leagues recently finished the season playoffs with the crowning of new champions. More than 35 of the town’s top players completed in round-robin play throughout the summer, culminating in the top finishers playing for the title.

In the inaugural year of the men’s singles league, Kirby Moulton finished first in the regular season standings and went on to win the playoffs in a close battle with Peter Darvas. David Rittenhouse finished third and Steve Rapkin fourth.

The first-year league proved very popular with 20 players playing more than 1,000 games during the 10-week season, culminating in the final- week playoffs.

The men’s doubles league celebrated its 15th year of play and was as competitive as ever. Throughout the history of the league there has never been a repeat by the defending champions and this year proved the same.

The playoffs provided some of the most exciting play of the season with Pat Fagen and Gerald Roberts defeating Ed Daley and Bruce Pickering in the semifinals in a third-set tiebreaker.

Fagen and Roberts earned the right to play Bill Vollenhaus and Neil Trebitech, who went undefeated through the regular season to reach the finals. In a three-hour marathon match, Vollenhaus and Trebitech saved several match points to emerge victorious 3-6, 6-4, 7-6. Vollenhaus and Trebitech were the first team in recent history to complete the entire season undefeated.
