Team Zurek had some great results as well as they have been putting in some serious work. I am so proud of all them.

It was great to see everyone, thank you to everyone at the IRT, the tournament staff, Jason Chan and his club staff for the amazing facility, Donald Williams for taking care of everyone and all of the sponsors. I was so excited to see so many Team HEAD players as we continue to dominate the courts.
