Pictured from left to right are: Lawrence Kleger (tennis director of the Sweethearts Tournament), Liz Jaffe, Brad Lawrence, Bart Kaplan and Fred Blumenfeld (both are co-founders and chairmen of the North Shore Sweethearts Tournament).

The Village Club of Sands Point can proudly say that our tennis professionals are the very best - and they have the title to prove it. Liz Jaffe and Brad Lawrence participated in the seventh annual Long Island Sweethearts tennis tournament in the Open Mixed Doubles category, a weeklong event, held at Shelter Rock Tennis Club. The Sweethearts tournament benefits the Diabetes Research Institute, a cure focused research charity. (DRI) The institute has raised over $100,000 to help fund research.

Liz and Brad played in the finals on Sunday Aug. 1 and their opponents were Robin Deitch and Rick Liebman, pros from Shelter Rock. Needless to say, the event was well attended by Shelter Rock club members, and they had the home court advantage. However, The Village Club of Sands Point had the goods! Club members came out in full force to support their pros and they were treated to an afternoon of superior and entertaining tennis.

Tension was high as Liz and Brad lost the first set quickly. They regrouped and refocused and took the second set 7-5. The momentum was with them as they handily took the third set 6-2 to win the trophy. They attributed their win to keeping with their game and remaining aggressive as they watched their opponents start to unravel. Congratulations on a wonderful victory for a terrific cause.

For further information about the DRI please call Shelley Kaplin, Long Island Regional Director at (516) 621-8804.
