Good Ol’ Boys on “Challenge Court” – Tomorrow, Sat. Jan 16 at 11:30AM. Pictured from left to right are Dick Bohrnstedt, Robert Van’t Hof, George Taylor and Ken Stuart – the 4 have over 200 years of tennis experience! During their match on 12/31/15, viewers commented that “we’ve never seen such perfect strokes from four people on the same court, do they ever miss?” All the positive comments have prompted the “Boys” have to play the rematch. We invite everyone to come out to cheer on the “Boys” AND those that attend will receive a complimentary drink from the Palisades Pub! See you tomorrow!

The Pacific Sun League hosts 29 clubs and over 2,200 participants which is why it is quite an honor to win several division titles along with the prestigious Paddy Speyer’s Trophy.
