The Men's 5.0 team from Fort Worth went 2-1 at Nationals last weekend, but didn't win enough lines to get out of pool play.

Men's 4.5 Nationals will start Friday. Rusty Branch's Dallas team is in a Flight with Norcal, Southwest and Pacific Northwest. They start out with Norcal, which is usually the strongest of those three sections.

The 4.0 team from Lubbock is in a tough pool with Middle States, Mid-Atlantic, Norcal and Midwest. Play in the 4.0 division begins on 10/22.

Ratings of local players are dependent on how well or poorly Texas players fare at Nationals. A rising tide lifts all boats, so to speak.


  1. Looks like Dallas 4.5 won their first match at nationals 3-2 despite not having their top 2 singles players.

  2. Branch 3-0 in pool play advances to the Semis...still no sign of Mike kelly or Gene Davis

  3. OC/Branch 3rd in the Nation. Great job Team Texas.
