A group of Carmel Valley and Del Mar women recently won the BB Division in Tennis Competitor’s League.  The team, captained by Alicia Mapes and Salma Ott, used their tennis expertise and excellent strategy with a scaled-down team of dedicated  players to win the hard-fought title.  The league played out of  local recreational facility, Carmel Valley Tennis.  It’s a four-court center with a small-town feel.   Most of the players are moms with children attending Carmel Valley schools and race off to the courts after drop off. “The team is thrilled to take home the title this season.”
