An all BPC Finals in the snowy Weekend Warriors
Mar 03, 2019
Recap from Tournament Director David McNaughton:

Warriors from all over New England ascended on Boston to compete in the 2nd annual Wellesley Weekend Warrior paddle tournament. Winter storm Scott relentlessly dropped snow on the tournament sites throughout the day which made for challenging paddle conditions. The court heaters were humming as the players battled at Brae Burn and Wellesley and the draw stayed on schedule despite the wintery setting.

Early on you could tell that the tournament was going to have its fair share of drama when the father/son defending champs Bill and Ben Davis, went down to Remington Pope and Nathaniel Mason 6-2,6-2. The father/ son duo regrouped and produced two strong performances in the Quarter Reprieve draw and beat Matt Nazarenko and Ted Danglemeyer in the finals 6-4,7-6(5). In the consolation bracket, Barry Nectow and Brian Henry won an exciting 1-6,7-6,6-2 battle against the home town warriors John Murray and Mark Lund. The men from Maine, John Sheehan and Rob Breed trekked a long distance to compete among Boston’s best and lost a tight three setter in the semis to eventual champs Chris Jeffery and Csaba Pazmany. On the top half of the draw, the 4th seed Chris Weiss and Louis Crose got on an early roll and defeated Remington Pope and Nathaniel Mason 6-1,6-1 to gain entry into the finals. A quick lunch break provided by the legendary Linden Deli ensured that the Warriors were well fed and hydrated before the all Brookline Paddle Club final. In the end, Chris Jeffery and Csaba Pazmany had too much fire power off the deck and beat their comrades Chris Weiss and Louis Crose 6-2,6-1 to take home the coveted Yeti cup!

A great time was had by all and we hope to see you again next year!
