First-ever Bellevue Club/Mercer Island Country Club tennis championships a success
For ten days in October, tennis courts were filled with the first Bellevue Club versus Mercer Island Country Club Tennis Championships. The tournament was a huge success with 360 entries and 350 matches played! The Bellevue Club hosted a players' party for all the participants with cocktails, appetizers and exhibition play pairing pros from both clubs, featuring some of the top matches of the night. We look forward to continuing these tournaments, as it helps build the tennis community at the Club. We're excited for next year!
