Third Annual North Fork Open ... A Great Day of Tennis for All

Posted on 10/4/2017

The Third Annual North Fork Open, a two-day double elimination event was a “win win” on all fronts.  Hosted by the TWIGS Branch of the Eastern Long Island Hospital Auxiliary at The Courts of Peconic Landing in Greenport, the tournament drew a hearty crowd of both participants and spectators. Great tennis was played by all, and over $4,000 was raised for Eastern Long Island Hospital.  


Sponsored by Peconic Landing and coordinated by Tennis Pro, Mark Brent, the tournament included a ladies’ competition won by Patty Cortez and Linda Ortiz, both of Greenport.  Champions in the men’s competition were Eric Digons of North Easton, MA, formerly of Mattituck and John Czartosieski of Riverhead.  Additional sponsors included Hampton Tennis, East End Sporting Goods, East End Cardiology, North Fork Radiology and North Fork Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine. 

 “We are very grateful to Peconic Landing and Mark Brent for their help with this event.  It is growing each year, and we welcome more community involvement,” states TWIGS Chair, Connie Connor.
