Interclub Tournament '08

The 2008 Interclub Tournament was hosted by our Sacramento friends yesterday at their home courts at Mather Field. Teams from Willits, Sonoma, San Rafael, San Francisco as well as Sacramento showed up to compete. In all, approximately 4o players competed for the honor of holding the cup for the year to come. In the morning, players from one's own team competed against those of the other four to determine those who would qualify for the afternoon's final games. After the dust had settled, Sonoma came away with the Interclub Trophy.
