New May Record


Today's G/45 Quads attracted 60 players, which is a Westfield CC record for May. The previous record was 50, for the Ernesto Labate Memorial on May 1st.

The Quads have been submitted for rating and should appear online around 10 11 p.m. We are sorry for the delay but a program glitch corrupted the tournament data and it had to be re-entered.
