The Spring Open 3rd Mak Wheels Tournament closed on Sunday on the courts of the Carpenedolo Tennis Centre, in the province of Brescia. The men’s event had a prize money of 1500 euros. The organizers had a great response from the athletes, in fact there were 150 registered and, given the presence of 63 second category players, the event was of a high level, as evidenced by the names of the protagonists who reached the end of the tournament.
The final victory went to Davide Pontoglio, classified 2.3 and member of the Tennis Club Treviglio. The class of ’92 won the last act with a net 63 62 against Manuel Massimino, classified 2.3 and member of Sportrend Melzo.
