The Second Annual Best Serve on Cape Cod Challenge ended with a bang on Saturday, June 16th, 2018, as Patrick Wyeth bested a tough field in the men’s open fast serve category with a 116.9 MPH serve earning top honors for the second year in a row.

“It’s really something to see these players compete,” said South Yarmouth Tennis Club President, Stan Werlin. “Patrick’s winning serve left a nearly foot-long crease on the clay court. The sound of the serve off the big servers' racquets was like the crack of a cannon every time… exactly the sound you hear at pro tennis tournaments,” he said.

Second place was boomed in by Tom Lomenzo at 113.9 MPH. Third place was Tyler Shibles at 112.7 MPH. The age 70 and over fast serve division was won by Fred Churchill at 73 MPH. who also won the "most accurate serve" in his division.

Julia Boiko ripped a 70.8 MPH serve winning the women’s fast serve Open division. Annie Braude took second place with a 50.8 MPH serve. Carla Rossiter topped the 50-69’s group with a 41.6 MPH serve.

The event was sponsored by Bass River Chiropractic and a $300 donation was made to the South Yarmouth Tennis Club Youth Scholarship Foundation.
