The first retreat of 2016 just took place in the beautiful surroundings of the Omni Rancho las Palmas Resort and Spa. The group of ladies present for the retreat was one of the most studious ones on record, but also fierce in competition!
After 2 days of competition, 5 out of the first 6 matches had gone to super third set tie breakers with Hot Swingers taking 3 of them, setting them up for a comfortable lead. But El Capitan Albert Fernandez and his very talented co-captain Rodrigo Almeida rallied the Alley Cats troops and on the last day the Alley Cats mounted a furious comeback that only fell short by one tiny little point in the end. 15-14 to Hot Swingers, champions of the 2016 ORLP retreat, led by captain Jerome Millet and co-captain Elliot Pegg.
The retreat, held under exceptional weather conditions, also marked the reunion of a Hall of Fame band. Guns n’ Roses announced at the Coachella music festival later on this Spring, made an appearance on the Thursday costume night, and headed the 80’s themed evening, marked by a great dinner and a fun Name that 80s Tune competition!
Great friends! Great ladies! Great fun! Great weather! The 2016 ORLP retreat was one of a kind!
See you on the court soon!
