We saved the triangle tournament for the Pros.... playing today and tomorrow in Long Beach New York
The weather god is not smiling on Bermuda this week.
Due to Tropical Storm Cristobal heading to Bermuda
we had to take the only
decision possible and that was to cancel play in BERMUDA.
This year BEACH TENNIS USA, BERMUDA BEACH TENNIS & PUERTO RICO BEACH TENNIS put together the TRIANGLE of BEACH TENNIS.
What a fabulous idea to attract the world's best players
to compete for $
30,000 between all the locations.
Indeed Bermuda had the best field ever signed up to arrive in BERMUDA today.
But all is NOT LOST.
Our friends at BEACH TENNIS USA under Jim
Lorenzo & Mark Bonfigli, have
offered to keep the players in LONG BEACH, and with cooperation from the
International Tennis Federation (ITF), Bermuda Beach Tennis and our sponsors
we are creating the BERMUDA event in NEW YORK tomorrow Tuesday August 26th.
The players were faced with losing Bermuda anyway, and had they come here
may have lost Puerto Rico should their flights get cancelled on Thursday,
the travel day to Puerto Rico.
TonyB flew to NEW YORK with BERMUDA flags,
the players are so appreciative that we managed
to keep the TRIANGLE of BEACH tennis intact
albeit that they will miss out on BERMUDA this year.
It indeed is a goodwill
gesture and we thank the Fairmont Southampton,
The BTA & our sponsors for
their support and understanding.
We feel that the players will show us their
love next year and return to play on the PINK SANDS of Bermuda !
Mark & I were gutted that we had to cancel.
So much time in planning "blown
out" by a storm!
We wish to thank Barbara Tevarotto for all she has done
with our WEBSITE, FACEBOOK & TWITTER banners.
Mark & I would also like to thank Karol Wise for all she has done in helping
with the chaos today at JFK. Special thanks to my travel agent Marlene who
rearranged the "Stutto's flights on JET BLUE.
Shelley Meszoly and her
Fairmont team......thanks guys !
BIG THANKS to Mark Bonfigli who stepped up and supported this event
Best to all: see you in NEW YORK tomorrow and BERMUDA in 2015 !
Tony & Mark
