・The Tournament finally begins!!! Japan vs Canada vs the USA– “Day 5 Recap ”
On the 25th, the tournament finally began with the three represented countries facing off in a competitive, yet friendly environment. Each player had two singles and two doubles against other players and competed for the trophy.
Team Japan and Team USA tied for the most wins, but Team USA earned more games than Team Japan and won the trophy.
The tournament went very smoothly and was another success this year. We are forever thankful for the sponsors as well as all the volunteers for their tremendous contribution to this event.
Without all of you, none of this was possible to achieve. Also, the local residents stopped and came to support the matches. All the players were playing under slightly different pressure than usual, which made the tournament even more exciting and allowed them to get something out of it.
A reception was held that evening, bringing together all athletes, coaches, sponsors, staff and volunteers. Although there was a language barrier between the athletes, that didn’t stop them from creating long lasting friendships as they exchanged numbers and took many pictures together through the night.
