On Sunday, May 17th, 2015 Rusnak/Arcadia sponsored the Mercedes Dealer Tennis Championship at Flint Canyon Tennis Club in La Canada, CA in support of the Cancer Support Community Pasadena.
Following the tradition of “The Best or Nothing,” the 2015 Mercedes-Benz Dealer Championships drew people to La Canada’s Flint Canyon Tennis Club in droves. Rusnak/Arcadia hosted this round of the Mercedes-Benz Dealer Championships this year for the 5th year. The players compete for one of two spots on a team that will advance to the Sectional Tournament in the fall. Ever in support of community, Rusnak/Arcadia donated the proceeds of every registration to the Cancer Support Community Pasadena. Rusnak/Arcadia selected the CSC because of their mission which is devoted to ensuring that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.
Mixing matches between men’s, women’s and mixed doubles, the playing field was even, dynamic and challenging for all participants. The foothills and the 13 tennis courts at FCTC echoed with cheers and congratulations after each set, but ultimately for the two winners: Laurie Manly and Colin Tang. The rules require amateur participants only; these two brought near-professional-level skill and athleticism.
The winners, participants and hosts were celebrated for their efforts by being served a hearty, healthy, gourmet dinner, the kind that only athletes desire after a day of contest, in concert with trophies and Exclusive Nike gifts at the award ceremony.
Flint Canyon Tennis Club is a family-owned business that has been operating for nearly 40 years with 13 courts in total. Nestled in the foothills of La Canada, attendants played in a geographically unique setting providing players and spectators a serene, verdant and mountainous backdrop.
