Arkansas Women's 2.5 Team All Smiles

October 28, 2004 10:02 AM

The 2.5 women representing the Southern Section placed second at the National Championship in Palm Springs, CA. The team was captained by Deborah Wright and advanced to the finals with a 3-0 win over Pacific Northwest before falling to Caribbean 2-1.

The Women 2.5 Southern Section Champions hail from Bentonville, Ark., home of one of the largest retailers in the world, Wal-Mart. These ladies all play at the Walton Life Facility, a club that was donated to the town by Sam and Helen Walton, the founders of Wal-Mart. Only Wal-Mart employees and their spouses are allowed to use this facility (in the case of this team its all spouses). In order to keep the spirit of Wal-Mart, the ladies all have the well known “smiley face” logo in the center of their tennis racquets.
