Canada's Women Win Crawford Cup; U.S Men Sweep Lapham-Grant Matches at 96th Lapham-Grant

2017-04-24

Calgary (AB) was the honoured host of the 96th edition of the Lapham-Grant matches.  Over 200 athletes from Canada and the United States hit the courts at the Glencoe Club and Bow Valley Club.

The Lapham-Grant Matches consists of four dual matches—men’s singles competing for the Lapham Cup, men’s doubles competing for the Grant Trophy, women’s combined singles and doubles competing for the Crawford Cup, and legend’s doubles, men’s players over 65 years of age, competing for the Lawrence-Wilkins Trophy.

After a tightly contested Crawford in New York last year, Canada's women played well, reclaiming the cup for the 10th time in it's 15 year history.

Canada's legend's doubles players captured the Lawrence-Wilkins Trophy for the third consecutive year.

The U.S's men captured both the Lapham Cup and Grant Trophy, snapping Canada's 4-year streak in the Lapham Cup.
