The 2012 event was extremely successful. The play was competitive, the athletes were particularly kind, and the weather was amazing.

36 players entered in numerous divisions and the play was great.

The member’s favorite tournament at the Hilton El Conquistador was well attended and the spectators were thrilled. The players competed hard and the members & El Conquistador staff and volunteers really enjoyed the event. Keeley Hutchinson; Photographer was on site for the duration of the event. Her photo album from 2011 was clearly the hit of the event with the players. Congratulations to all of the Champions and to all of the players for a fantastic display of talent, strength and sportsmanship.
