Headwaters Racquet Club put on a special celebration to mark the success of Caledon's Erin Routliffe. Erin, a sophomore at University of Alabama, partnered with junior Maya Jansen, to win the NCAA Divison 1 doubles title for the second consecutive year.  They are doubly the pride of the Crimson Tide!! 
Since then, Erin has been playing some Challenger tournaments. At the 2015 National Bank event in Granby held the third week in July Erin got a special surprise as she was paired with former British number 1 and Olympic mixed doubles silver medalist, Laura Robson.  When Erin was told who her partner would be she searched online to see if there was another Laura Robson who played tennis in case she was mistaken. The two meshed nicely and were able to take out the second and fourth seeds before eventually losing in the doubles final. “It was a little intimidating but I was just trying to hold my own, do what I do best on the court and try to help us gel as a doubles team,” Erin commented. “Laura is super nice. She’s awesome.”
