Hideaway Produces USTA FL Sectional Champs
Let me start this season wrap up with HUGE KUDOS to Captain Ed Marcelo and his USTA Florida 65 and Over 7.0 Sectional Champion teammates! The team represented the Hideaway Country Club, Lee and Charlotte Counties at the Sectional Championships in Daytona this past weekend, and walked away as State Champions...the first ever in the history of Hideaway Tennis. Keep an eye out for more details in the News-Press.
In addition to Captain Ed, Hideaway members of the team included Richard Fell, Masa Kumamoto, Tim McClary, and Bob Bachula. Other members of the team included John Blohm, Nile Evans, Tom Martin, and Steve Romaine. It was the successive year Captain Ed had taken a 7.0 team to sectionals, but it was under the Hideaway banner that they emerged victorious. The team will play for the National Championship next march in Arizona.

More Hideaway Teams
In addition to our Sectional Champs, our men’s and women’s teams helped to put The Hideaway on the Southwest
Florida tennis map with their strong performances this season. Among the Hideaway residents participating on ladies teams this season were Paula Barry, Lee Cross, Vivian Landis, Michelle Paquette, and Linda Sisco. Thank you for your outstanding representation of Hideaway ladies tennis.
Our Lee County Women's Tennis League (LCWTL) Copper team, led by Bert Ann Haas and Terri Turner, finished in the top-10 (7th) of their division, and although the other two (3.0 led by Lynne Price and
Rennie Bassett; Bronze led by Pearle Warren and Pat Ben-Dov) didnt' finish in the top-ten, they represented The
Hideaway with total effort and a lot of class.
