A Fall Full of Tournaments in Central New York

A Fall Full of Tournaments in Central New York

Volunteers from Central New York Tennis Association (CNYTA) have been busy with a full schedule of tournaments.

The annual CNYTA Adult Tournament took place September 5-7 at Sedgwick Farm Tennis Club. Over 90 adults from across Central New York took part in this Tournament, which included Men’s and Women’s Singles and Doubles and Mixed Doubles divisions. The event is part of the USTA Eastern Compete in the Parks series.

Sedgwick also hosted the CNYTA Junior Tournament the next weekend, September 12-14. This is a Level 2 Tournament sanctioned by USTA Eastern. The winners from each division are listed below:

  • Boys’ 16 Singles -- Joey Robinson def. Parker Stone, 6-1, 6-2
  • Boys’ 14 Singles -- Dan Kot def. Jonathan Koss, 6-3, 6-2
  • Boys’ 12 Singles -- Brandon Stone def. Brent Boleslav, 6-1, 6-0
  • Girls’ 16 Singles -- Amrita Deol def. Claire Mooney, 6-1, 6-1
  • Girls’ 14 Singles -- Sienna Susko def. Carlee Conway, 6-2, 6-3
  • Boys’ 16 Doubles -- Brandon Stone/Daryl Johnson def. Brendan Denvir/Paul Larios, 7-5, 7-5

The CNYTA Tournaments are dedicated to the memory of Al Romeo. For more than half of the 20th Century, Al was a guiding force for the game of tennis in Central New York.

The Joseph F. Davoli Memorial Tournament took place at Tennis-N-Gear in Liverpool from October 10-12. This is a Mixed Doubles Tournament with 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, and open divisions.

Proceeds from this Tournament go to a scholarship fund so that individuals with disabilities will be able to take tennis lessons. The event is dedicated to Mr. Davoli, who devoted much of his life to providing children of all ages and levels with the opportunity to participate in lessons, clinics, and tournaments through the central New York Junior Tennis Foundation.

Volunteers are now preparing to assist with the USTA National Open Boys and Girls 14 and under Tournament that will take place November 27-December 1 at several clubs in the Syracuse area.
