Originally scheduled to take place at the La Romana Country Club tennis courts, the tournament had to be moved up to the La Terraza Tennis Club – due to the overwhelming popularity of the activity, which saw the participation of many more Casa de Campo villa owners than was anticipated. The group of enthusiastic and philanthropic tennis players battled it out in a men’s and women’s division playing in a doubles round robin format, until the overall winners (based on the number of games they had won) fought over the champion title in a thrilling finals.

For many Casa de Campo villa owners the tennis tournament was a warm-up to other activities, such as the zumba, golf and dance-party they attended later in the day!
