The Robson Ranch Tennis Club is excited to have a new player, Ellen McDonald, join us. Blanton and Ellen McDonald moved here just this past June. Blanton enjoys golf, but Ellen found her group among the “drop-in” tennis ladies and the Tuesday drill group with Joy Macci.

Having spent more than 40 years in Colorado, Ellen was asked to join the Colorado 65+, 4.5 team from there to play at the Sectionals tournament in St. George, Utah, at the end of September.

After two rounds, Colorado was tied with Utah 3-3. The final round was tough, but Ellen’s team came out victorious! They will be heading to play in the Nationals tournament in Surprise, Ariz., in February.

Ellen wants to thank all of the ladies here at the Ranch who helped her practice, and especially Joy for all the extra time and effort to help her get ready for this exciting tournament!
