5th ITF International Bermuda Beach Tennis

The 4th BERMUDA BEACH TENNIS TOURNAMENT
- 2011 -

The 4th Bermuda Beach Tennis tournament had the best men's professional field ever assembled in one place with 4 of the top 10 teams all in Bermuda. HOWEVER, even the best laid plans can me completely messed up when the weather does not cooperate. HURRICANE IRENE, hit the USA, but the storm surge made it to Bermuda causing flooding of Horseshoe Bay on the 2nd day of the event……

Hi Tide hit at 8.35 am and the beach was pretty flooded. By about 11am we managed to get ALL courts back up and running ONLY to be hit by the announcement of a sudden new Tropical Storm that erupted early Sunday morning……We got very little rain except one or two squalls but the wind was blowing past 40 knots at times…… NEEDLESS to say….we got the SEMI FINAL PRO games of the men and women completed and indeed all the LOCAL amateur play by 7 last night.

Merrymen review in the Royal Gazette

Italians take beach tennis title in 2008

Sun, sea, sand and some stunning athleticism was on display at Horseshoe Bay this weekend as Italian duo Matteo Marighella and Alex Mingozzi won Bermuda's first international beach tennis tournament.

The World Champions won the battle on the beach, which saw Horseshoe transformed into a kind-of Flushing Meadows on the Atlantic.

Local players including Andy Bray, Phil van Doninck, Gavin Manders and Mark Cordeiro got their 15 minutes of fame in the purpose-built seaside centre court.

But it was the Italian maestros - flown in for the event by Little Venice restaurant group - that shone in the sun.

They beat American duo Chris Henderson and Phil Whitesell in the final to be crowned champs on Saturday night.

Mark Altheim, the founder of Beach Tennis USA, and Brazlian Ronald Gleicher won the amateur event on Sunday.

Marty Solokas and Jane Minton won the fun mixed doubles event.
