The Bonnie Briar Country Club in Larchmont hosted the New York One-On-One Doubles Shootout this past Saturday, the latest installment of the One-On-One Doubles Shootout event series.

This event was a bit different than the previous ones, as there was a mandatory Serve & Volley rule and players received a two-point bonus for winning volleys and overheads that went untouched by their opponents. The tournament featured a number of talented players, many of whom have experience on the ATP World Tour.

The matches were played to the best two-out-of-three sets with no-ad scoring and no lets. After a completive draw, Gary Kushnirovich faced off against Max Schnur in the championship match.

Kushnirovich defeated Schnur 4-1, 1-4, 4-1 to capture the title.

“What a great afternoon of fast and super furious tennis!” said Tournament Director Ryan Horn. “It was a beautiful October afternoon and ended with a two-point volley by Gary [Kushnirovich] on match point! It was well played by all. Thank you to Ed Krass, Jeff Greene, Whitney Kraft, and our newly-appointed Director of Tennis Asi Phillips for hosting a spectacular event.”

The next One-On-One Doubles events will take place in Wilmington, DE on October 17, and in Aberdeen, NC on October 24. For more information on these events and more of what One-On-One Doubles has to offer, visit OneOnOneDoubles.com.
