The 2008 Spring Slam Tennis Tournament continues this Memorial Day Weekend at Wintergreen Resort on Devils Knob. The annual tournament raises money to benefit the folks at The Wintergreen Nature Foundation and the great people at Wintergreen Fire & Rescue. The weather, a tad cool in the mornings, has been perfect for this year’s tournament. Our Paul Purpura has been all over the place the is weekend shooting pics of the events taking place, including this year’s Spring Slam. His shutter has been busy!
After Saturday’s play, the great staff and volunteers at Wintergreen Nature Foundation prepared a very yummy meal for this year’s players. Above left, Doug Coleman, executive director of TWNF, and Tony Troy of Stoney Creek, grill up chicken!
Ok, since Yvette is in the “incubation mode” the cocktail hour at this year’s event became the water hour for her. But a happy bartender, Liz Salas, left is more than happy to serve the “two” a little H2O!
But, that didn’t stop Yvette from playing for the third year in a row in the tournament. She and doubles partner, Debbie Flight, from Richmond are in the second day of play as of Sunday morning with one win and one loss.
The Spring Slams continues Sunday with mixed doubles play ending the event on Memorial Day.
