Club Championship Finals- Come and Watch!

Hello members
Our 2016 club championship is coming to an end with our Finals day set for Saturday December 10th. Anyone interested in watching some good tennis is welcome to stop by to cheer on the players. Play will start around the eleventh hour… That being said, the event was a success with 58 players playing in up to three different events. Thank you to everyone who is participating and helping making this event a success. You know an event is a success when people are talking about their matches and giving blow by blow commentary of how it all went down. I love it!

Now we all know there’s only one winner in each event… And for those of you that did not do as well as you had hoped or for those that did not feel their game was up to par to participate, I have great news. We will have a special on tennis lessons for the clubs twelve days of Christmas. Buy 3 lessons and get ONE FREE. That’s a 25% discount. What a deal! Stay tuned for what day the deal will be offered on.

Finally, with the rainy season most of you will have to do some “squeegeeing” at some point in time. I would like to remind everyone that our squeegees need to be soaked before use and hung up the fence after each use. This will help the foam from losing its round shape. We are presently looking in acquiring a few new ones and changing the ones that have seen better days. The better use we make of them the faster our courts will be dry for us to enjoy some tennis…

Rain or shine, I am always welcoming comments and/or suggestions.
I will see you all on the courts soon
