Photos: Elbow Beach Hosts Tennis Challenge

August 20, 2015

The Elbow Beach Tennis Challenge recently took place, with some of the island’s top tennis players hitting the courts. Previously known as the Crystal Family Cup Invitational Tennis Challenge, the tournament is held in honour of the Crystal family, who have travelled to Bermuda every Christmas since the 1970s.

In order to be eligible for the challenge, each player had to have represented Bermuda on an international stage in events organised by the International Tennis Federation [ITF], be a Davis Cup or Fed Cup squad member, and be in good standing with the Bermuda Lawn Tennis Association.

Tyler Smith defeated Jacklyn Lambert in the Ladies Final in straight sets 6 – 0, 6 – 2. In the Men’s Final, number three seed Jenson Bascome defeated Jovan Whitter 6-7(5), 6-0, 10-8.
