Mind of a Champion – Peter Keiser

articleTop

Gerri Viant’s love of adventure knows both external and internal landscapes. Whether backpacking around the world or exploring the vast interior of her feeling system and psyche, the joy of the journey permeates her. Viant, teaming with Sue Aery to win eight Womens Nationals and reach the finals of another two during a remarkable 13-year run from 1990-2002, knew travel was in her future.

As a child she remembers looking at maps and plotting itineraries. “I always knew I was going to travel,” she says. “My parents encouraged me. My mother would sit down with me and I would show her trips I was planning.”

It wasn’t just that Viant loved to travel. It was the way she did it that says so much about her. Growing up in Adelaide, Australia there was a kind of cultural bias within her social sphere toward the big tour – of doing Europe, first by flying West to London and then fanning out across the Continent to begin a long trek that would bring the wanderer home.

“I can’t remember not playing paddle,” says Mike Stulac. A two- time winner, finalist, and three- time semi-finalist of the Men’s Nationals, Stulac with his wife Kerri Delmonico has won a Mixed Doubles and three Husband-Wife Nationals as well.

Unlike the majority of Nationals champions who converted from tennis to paddle, Stulac is a rarity, a paddle player who didn’t grow up a tennis and squash guy. Introduced to platform tennis early on in his native Toronto, Stulac recalls how he grew up with it.

The Fairfield County Platform Tennis League – Peter Keiser

fcptl_drive_logo1

The Fairfield County Platform Tennis League unveiled its new logo on Saturday, September 27, 2014 at the league’s Captains’ Breakfast. You couldn’t pick a better time for a retrospective of the organization – how it came about, the way it has moved forward and the potential challenges it faces as it greets the future.

Central to the FCPTL has been its board, presently an eight member administrative group that oversees the activities of a weekend league numbering 100 teams, 7 divisions and 1,000 players. It also sponsors an end- of- season, day- long paddle extravaganza, The Paul Fowler Invitational Tournament that includes 224 participants playing at 14 area venues. It is billed as the “Best Single Day of Paddle” and is reputed to be the largest one – day paddle tournament in the country though there might be some local bias influencing that call!

It wasn’t always so. The seeds for the FCPTL’s growth, however, were sown in its inception and a good way to mark that fortuitous time is through the logo adopted at the league’s founding in 1999-2000. Charlie Scott, the Commissioner of the Sunday or B League contributed the emblem that would become the FCPTL symbol for the next 15 years.
