PTFC Members Medal at the Sr. Olympics

Posted on October 08, 2011 by PTFC

To participate is to win. That is why two of our Potomac Tennis & Fitness Club senior team members, captain Ab Alkassim and Paul Stanton participated in this year’s Maryland Senior Olympic tennis tournament.

Ab, playing his last two matches on Saturday, September 24th, won his semi-final match 6-0, 6-0 and followed that with dominating 6-2, 6-1 performance in the final and took home the gold medal. Paul, playing in the 80-84 age division, won his quarter-final match 6-3, 6-3 but came up a bit short in his attempt to reach the final. This, however, didn’t detour him from wanting to play for the bronze. Paul closed out this year’s event by walking away a winner.

Congratulations gentlemen and GO SENIOR TEAM!

Ab Alkassim

Paul Stanton

    - Always remember to get your racquet back as soon as you see which side the ball is going to and turn.

    - Return to center as soon as you hit the ball and have your racquet up and ready for the next shot.

    - Keep your feet moving so you can get to the next ball position.

    - Drink lots of fluids on these hot summer days!
