If there’s one thing Dueños like to do, it’s play sports with their fellow neighbors. While all across the resort, Casa de Campo villa owners took part in a wide range of different activities (yoga, the Casathon, polo and golf), a group took classic games of tennis took place at the La Terraza Tennis Center and rounds of clay shooting at the Shooting Center on Saturday, October 13th.
Even though Saturday was a bit wet and drizzly, shooters and tennis players alike still came out to participate in Casa de Campo’s sporting life – after all Dueños Weekend only comes once a year! Tennis players were lucky to get an early start before the rain came and enjoyed singles and doubles matches on the resort’s posh Har-Tru courts. This clay material is excellent for facilitating well-rounded games with less chance of strain on the body. The ball bounces a little slower and that means more time to ensure longer rallies! Maria Mastrolilli won first place in the female category, while Jenny Shin came in second. Dante Morales won the Junior title, and Alma Gonzalez won second. Jack Thomas and Said Cabrera the first place winner of the doubles masculine category! Peter Lashchuck and Victor Padua followed in second.

That same day, the Shooting Center drew in novice and experienced shooters and had qualified professionals on hand for any questions and instruction necessary.
Clay shooting is definitely one of the coolest activities we’ve come across in the resort lately – and if you haven’t given it a try, it’s a must! This year’s champs included Victoria Giha as champion in the female category with Magdalena García in second. Andrés de la Rocha earned first place in the Junior category, followed closely by Jorge García. The sub-champion of the men’s category was Alexander Ventura, while Gregorio Rodríguez took home the trophy for first place. Congratulations!
