Florida State Tournament Results: P10 & A07

The 10th tournament on the Florida State Pro schedule is President’s Cup Mixed Doubles held in Lakeland. With no other pro tournaments this week and it being held in a quasi central location in the state, it garners the most entries of any single event of the season. There were 71 entries, just one fewer than last year.

Now we’ll move an hour or so south to Bradenton for the men’s and ladies doubles, in memory of Joyce Marquis. Before posting the results I’ll share some photos of the memorial put together by the Bradenton Club to honor Joyce. Her husband, Mike, spoke eloquently about her life and accomplishments before the tournament began.
