“Kismet or Fair Harbor…its all Fire Island” said new tennis star, Danielle

Winners:  Danielle and Jim  (sexual parity)

Final Four: Danielle, Jimmy S,  Dean and Gary (geographic parity)

“The 2015 Kismet Kaye Mixed Up Unisex Doubles  tournament held Saturday, 9/5/15 barely lived up to its name, with only 2 women in the 16 person draw, the Winners were Danielle Feis and Jim Sugrue, preserving sexual parity.

It also accomplished its primary goal of completion in a single day, in record time, by 4:30 PM.

After three rounds, each with a different partner (hence “mixed up”), the eight entries with the highest number of games won, moved into the semi finals.

In the semis, Dean DeMarco & Gary Leone beat Tony Falotico & Dan Barbosa; and Danielle & Jim Sugrue beat Danny Engelstein & Gordon Melchner.

In the draw for the finals, in a rare case of fate (“Kismet”) , the semis winners kept their partners, and Danielle & Jim S. edged out the favorites, Dean & Gary, (8-7), with a gentle volley by Jim to Gary’s toes, who could not pop it up over the net.

The assembled crowd applauded, and those in the Licari Box lifted their glasses to the players, who were then bestowed their chits from the Inn and the Out, solicited by Jeannie Lieberman, Chief Solicitor, with engraved Beer Mugs to the four Finalists, testifying to their prowess to follow, arranged by Gary, Chief Engraver.     The Chief Umpire,  Hal Biagas, was AWOL, leaving the players to keep score when not playing, with notable integrity.

A good time was had by all.
