2023 Sportsmanship Nomination

2022 Sportsmanship Stories

Dorrie and Vincent were nominated by Tom - “There are two main reasons they deserve the award.  First, they made exceptional line calls. If it was close, it seemed that they favored the call toward our side. On one particular shot, after Dorrie called the ball out, Vincent discussed it with her and they decided to give us the point.  It was close and could have gone either way. 


Secondly, they were very fun people. They embodies the spirit of recreational tennis that it’s supposed to be fun.  We were able to joke about certain points and shots without it being disruptive or distracting.  


I wish them and their team the best of luck at Nationals.  I know they will represent the PNW well.’


Faye was nominated by Ying-Fang - “Faye and his partner Chiyuki Sugimoto did not shy away from reverting incorrect line calls. They also offered our server the courtesy of two serves whenever they felt the server was interrupted by other courts in any ways.  They demonstrated that tennis was a fair, fun, and friendly game!”
