Round Robin

We met Laurie over at Martin Downs Sports Resort.  Dylan was already playing when we got there.  We were really impressed with the improvement he is showing, especially in his serve.  It used to be a problem for him, but now he has overcome that, and he's really quite good!  In this Round Robin he won every match except the doubles.  Hooray!

The tennis pro is Cyrus - really interesting person.  And he went to college in Big Rapids!
