Matt DiDomizio has added a date for his next big tournament and is now going to be held on from Friday, April 29th, Saturday and Sunday May 1st. The Friday date has been added to make the event a 3-day affair. On a special note, white pants will be required for all performances – and that includes you Rocco and Anthony! The entry fee will be the usual $50 and that includes playing time for all 3 days plus practice time as allowed beforehand.
Matt’s Connecticut Amateur Jai-alai facility, located in Berlin, Connecticut, is just one of the three remaining in the United States. They will be celebrating their 12th Anniversary.
This is a remarkable achievement, but on the sadder sad of things, the event will hold a special memorial for Loren Harris. Loren was truly the top ambassador for the sport of jai-alai and dedicated his life to training young kids the great sport of jai-alai in the United States and Mexico. He passed away last month of a heart attack while in Cancan.
Matt’s tournament will not be a “pick you partner” event like the last one. Details of the format will come soon, and we will post it as soon as Matt gets it to us. This is a great time of the year to be up there. The weather is usually perfect (maybe a bit on the cool side at night) and right around the time the dogwoods are blooming.
Make your travel plans soon to save on airfare and hotel rooms. There are several hotels within 5-10 minutes of his court. For those traveling from Florida and elsewhere, there are a couple of new low-cost airlines offering service in addition to the usual JetBlue and Southwest Airlines. Avelo Airlines offers nonstop flights to a small New Haven airport from several cities with prices so low you will be amazed. New Haven is about the same distance away from the Cancha as (dreadful) Bradley Airport, which is halfway between Hartford and Springfield Massachusetts. New Haven is the home to Yale University, several world acclaimed pizza parlors and the hamburger. Another new airline is Breeze Airways
