The Turkey Cup is an annual men’s tennis tradition at Fairbrae since 2021.
The 3rd Annual Turkey Cup has come and gone! This year’s winning team is “It’s Not My Fault” lead by Kevin Shen. They defeated the “Wall of Framers” lead by Captain Tran. See below for the results of this year’s Turkey Cup. For those who want in on this annual competition, start training now. It’s only for the most elite Fairbrae turkeys.
Fairbrae’s annual Men’s Tennis Turkey Cup is a team-based competition, similar to the Laver Cup.
WHEN: The usual Men’s Night on Tuesday and Wednesday after the Thanksgiving break.
Yes, there will be prizes, but more importantly, there will be bragging rights lasting a whole year until the next Fairbrae Tennis Turkey Cup.
2 teams have an equal number of players, and led by a team captain nominated by you when you sign up. Top 2 most nominated guys will be captains. Each team captain picks a player one at a time until all players are assigned a team. If there is an odd number, we will recruit 1 more to make it even.
Format will depend on how many players sign up. Captains will determine who plays which line on what day. Captains will determine the format.
For example, captains may decide on this format: Let’s say there are 20 players total. All 10 players on a team play at least 1 “match”. Each match is 8 game pro set, ad scoring. This is pretty sure to finish in 2 hours and have some socialize while singles finish up their match.
DAY 1 D1 v D1 (2 players from each team) D2 v D2 - (2 players from each team) S1 v S1 - (1 player from each team) DAY 2 D3 v D3 - (2 players from each team) D4 v D4 - (2 players from each team) S2 v S2 - (1 player from each team)
If there are 24 players, then we can eliminate S1 and S2 and have D5 and D6. Again, we can shorten or lengthen the format depending on number of players signed up.
OR captains may just play all doubles and no singles. Captains decide!
The 3rd Annual Turkey Cup was once again an exciting and competitive event with Team “It’s Not My Fault” lead by Captain Kevin versus Team “Wall of Framers” lead by Captain Tran. This year the gold medal and bragging rights go to ….. “It’s Not My Fault” by a landslide!

Deucebags (Captain Jignesh) vs. I’d Hit That (Captain Victor)
In 2022, Team Deucebags took home the bragging rights for the annual Men’s Turkey Cup event.
The 1st Annual Turkey Cup was held during Men’s Night, November 30th and December 1st. Our competitors were the Butterballs captained by Tracy Colwell vs. Thighs Before Pies (TBP) captained by Dirk Leone.
After 2 nights of competitive heckling and trash-talking, the TBP team came out ahead and earned the bragging rights for a year until the next Turkey Cup.
A lot of fun was had by all the players as well as the audience/hecklers.
There are no tickets to watch! Come one, come all! It’s a fun, it’s free, it’s priceless. Beverages and snacks will be provided.
