Last Sunday, Thunderbird Club Tennis hosted its first tournament, open to all Thunderbird students wishing to participate. The club, started by Calvin Burns in the fall trimester, has been great fun for its members each Sunday throughout the year.

In total, eight men and three women signed up to play (the tournament was separated by gender). For the men, pool play with two groups of four determined the top four players to advance to the semi-final round. At press time, we do not have a winner, as Fabian Gutierrez is set to play Tsuyoshi Iwata for the championship this weekend.

For the women, a round robin format was followed. Anela Perviz won it all for the ladies championship.

In addition, snacks and beverages were available for spectators and players alike. Some tennis goodies and player bags were also on hand to be raffled off. No player went home empty handed!

All in all, another great event to add to the Thunderbird yearly calendar. Next year, the club hopes to have even more Thunderbirds participate and spectate court side.
