    Tim Stephens and Matt Derham

     

    With great participation of 12 players, the Equal Challenge was once again a success in the City of Newport Beach.

    All of our players come with a wish of victory, and as you know all the players have the same chance to win.

    But how to win the Equal Challenge Tournament?

    The Equal Challenge Tournament does not reward the best player, but it rewards the real effort.  And if you became an Equal Challenge Champion, you should feel very proud of it.

    Matt Derham decided to pick up a random racket and challenge three opponents, obtaining first place in his group.

    Tim Stephens with tight scores against Mike Dolan (3-2) and Gary Jamieson (3-2) won first place in his group.  Great matches by the way!

    Michael Vaden, a 12 year old boy training hard to improve his level, for the first time advanced to the final stage.

    With this three gentlemen are in the final group.

    Tim Stephens defeat Michael Vaden (3-2)

    Matt Derham defeat Michael Vaden (3-0)

    Matt Derham defeat Tim Stephens (3-0)
