National Paddle Champs

Mark Parsons, head tennis and paddle pro at Manursing Island Club, and Mike Stulac, who works for J P Morgan Chase, won the American Platform Tennis Association Men’s National Championship in Chicago March 13. They beat Johan DuRandt, last year’s National champion, and his new partner, Matt Porter, in thrilling fashion 7-5, 6-4. Parsons, 31, and Stulac, 40, didn’t drop a set in the tournament.

Paddle tennis is gaining in popularity worldwide. All four finalists are foreign-born: Parsons and Stulac are from Canada, DuRandt is from South Africa, and Porter hails from Australia.
