Bollywood Calcutta Results & Photos

November 18-23, 2019

It’s time to catch our breath after another fun-filled Calcutta week! Thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s event such a success.

Things got started on Auction Night, when teams matched by Paul were revealed and $1,700 was raised. This set the stage for competitive and fun tennis throughout the week, along with great socials in the lounge. The week culminated in the Bollywood party on Saturday night, complete with costumes, delicious Indian food, prize giving, music and dancing.

Thanks go to Paul and Karin Tornquist for their proficient tournament management, and our social director Gord Saunders, assisted by Linda Saunders, Donna Allaby, Wolfgang Knab, Janice McClintock, and Jan McCaffrey for their many hours of volunteer time keeping the bar running all week, and organizing the party. Many thanks to Bonnie Collins and Bob Collins for decorating the lounge!
