Clinic Results

If you think the clinic put on by Dennis and Linda Forbes is too much trouble and not very productive, You should have been with us at the Lewiston, ID. tournament. Five local players were there and they garnered three gold medals and two bronze. I was privileged to referee the gold match that the team of Rodell Hill and Gary Robbins won to win the gold. I might as well have been at the Forbes clinic watching them play. They utilized most all of the strategies and movements taught by Dennis. For the most part, they dominated a match against some very good players. It was a pleasure to watch. Those same strategies were used (sometimes not very well)in the mixed doubles matches that Jan Johnson and his partner Pat Stnard used to win the gold medal. Same for the bronze in the men's doubles. It is an amazing thing to see what the drop shot from the serving line can do. In any event, it would prove to you that the teachings of the Forbe's team were very valid indeed.

Our own Linda Mitchell, a newbie player this year,not only played well, but took the bronze in the women's doubles. Great job Linda! She should be an inspiration for the rest of us to enter into tournaments and enjoy the fruits of our clinc. Again, great job done by Boise players.
