For one night, May 6th, the center of the universe for Long Island tennis was the Crest Hollow Country Club. Three hundred of the most important and successful tennis enthusiasts gathered to celebrate the achievements of the very best junior and adult players, coaches, etc. for their on and off court activities in 2008.Photographs of all award winners were taken.

Following a cocktail hour with live music, the ceremonies began. Receiving the most prestigious awards were Nancy McShea (Hy Zausner Lifetime Achievement), Dick Zausner (Vitas Gerulaitis Love of Tennis), Jason Harewood (Arthur Ashe Multi-Cultural) and Jill Levine (Charles Karp Memorial). All other award winners (junior and adult) are listed in this month's Long Island Tennis magazine, available at any club or on-line. Guest speakers included Jill Levine, Kathleen Rice (Nassau County District Attorney), and Ricky Becker. During a sumptuous dinner that only Crest Hollow can prepare, more than 50 items were raffled off and a successful live auction featuring U.S. Open related prizes was held as well.

In all, a very full and enjoyable event! 2010 will mark our 20th annual awards dinner. Look for an announcement of the date and location at this web-site.
