Elysium Tennis hosted the 4th Annual Battle at the Mudhole platform tennis tournament on Saturday July 8 and it was a great success! Some of the best players in the country battled the sun and each other on our outdoor paddle tennis courts here at Elysium in a series of heated paddle tennis matches.
In the end, Ryan Baxter and Zach Held (Indianapolis) took out defending champions Brian Heil and Mark Barry (Columbus) in the semifinals and Rob Bakker (Cincinnati) and Eric Miller (Charlotte) in the finals to capture the 2017 Mudhole championship title! Bakker/Miller upset top seeded Scott Kahler (Pittsburgh) and Randy Lofgren (Charlotte) in three sets en route to the finals.
A big congratulations to our champions and a warm thank you to
everyone who participated in this year’s Battle of the Mudhole paddle tennis tournament!
