TLTA vs. Fairfield Glades

Tennis Tournament

Friday, Oct. 11, 2019

This has been an annual tennis tournament for many years with the tournament location alternating between Tellico Village and Fairfield Glades each year.  The tournament was an all day event and took place on all four hard courts at the Rec Center and on all four courts at the Wellness Center.  Tellico Village was represented by members of the TLTA (Tellico Lakes Tennis Association) and members of the recently formed TVTC (Tellico Village Tennis Club).   Matches consisted of men’s doubles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles.

There were a total of 16 Tellico men players with 12 men from Fairfield Glades. The men’s results were split 4 matches to 4.  There were 16 women players from Tellico with 12 women from Fairfield Glades. The Tellico women won in resounding fashion 10 to 2.  There were seven mixed matches with Tellico winning 4 to 3.   

The winner of the tournament is determined by total matches won.  A tournament trophy is kept in the possession of the winning team until next year’s tournament.  Fairfield Glades has dominated this tournament in recent years but the final score this year was Tellico 18 and Fairfield Glades 9!  Congratulations to all participating TLTA and TVTC participants.   The tournament trophy can be viewed in the hallway of the Recreation Center.
