The Bellevue Club was well represented in Chattanooga, Tenn. Having originally won locally, our BC team won Regionals in Sun River, Ore. in August. 

This past week, they represented the entire Northwest region in Chattanooga, Tenn. at the National Invitational tennis tournament. They beat Puerto Rico, the midwest team from Ohio and the southern team from Texas to gain a spot in the final four, where they beat Florida's best. 

Their 4-0 National record propelled them into the Finals, where they ran into a buzz saw from South Carolina, losing 1-2 in a hard-fought battle. 

There were nearly 24,000 mixed double participants a year ago with the final 500 invited to Chattanooga for the National Tournament. Your BC team finished second in the nation and in the final four-tenths of one percent of all players from all divisions.

Make sure if you see them at the Club to ask them about their lucky ice chest.
