GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD WINNER -March, 2009
Gerald Smith, Georgia

LeagueTennis.com is excited to announce the winner of our March 2009 Good Sportsmanship Award!

Gerald was nomiinated by one of his playoff opponents who said, "We had our men's singles quarterfinal match at 3.5 yesterday. While the match was competitive, Gerald was a good sport throughout. This included close line calls (giving the benefit of doubt), giving congratulations on good shots and well played points, and finally, even though not required and I hesitated even accepting it, he insisted on providing a can of unopened balls as congratulations for winning the match."

We are proud to to have players like Gerald in our league! He will receive a 1 year subscription to Tennis Life Magazine for being such a good sport!

We want to stress to all of our players that Good Sportsmanship is critical to the success of our leagues. Treat others as you would have them treat you! And, if you experience a notable case of Good Sportsmanship while participating in our leagues--WE WANT TO KNOW! Just send us an email at support@leaguetennis.com with the details along with the names of the players involved! We will highlight the winners in our monthly newsletters and on our Website!
