Did you know that 130 million hot dogs are consumed nationwide on the 4th of July? While Coney Island, N.Y., hosts a famous televised hot dog eating contest every 4th of July, we at the SaddleBrooke Tennis Club celebrate by playing mixed doubles with a social that follows where our participants added to the 130-million hot dog total.

A good time was had by all who played and took time to socialize with friends. There were 24 POP tennis participants who played from 9 to 11 a.m. and then enjoyed a lovely luncheon on the tennis patio with club members.

Our patriotic POP tennis players were wearing their red, white, and blue, and some even decorated their tennis sneakers to commemorate the holiday.

Although it was more than 100 degrees, all the players kept their cool and enjoyed playing with old and new friends and had plenty of energy left to enjoy all the food and snacks provided by members and the SaddleBrooke Tennis Club.

A special shout-out to Tracy Reingruber and Anne Williams for coordinating the 4th of July social for all the SaddleBrooke Tennis Club members to enjoy.
