Causeway begins doubles tourney

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — The Causeway Club hosted the first doubles championships this weekend for the women, after several weeks of singles tournaments.

Ginny Lane and Carol Murray defeated Susan Allen and Kathy Roberts in the championship that was played Sunday, besting them 6-1, 7-6 with a 9-7 tiebreaker.

“Second set was very tight,” Causeway Club tennis pro Ben Rowell said. “Back and forth the whole way. Allen and Roberts had some momentum towards the end, but Lane and Murray held on.”

Lane has played in all three championships she has been eligible to participate in at the club this summer, and has won two of those contests. “She has played well,” Rowell said.

The Causeway Club will be hosting the men’s doubles tournament this week, with the championships being held Sunday, July 31.
