Letter from Judy

Dear Club Members:
I want you all to know I have greatly enjoyed my time at La Madrona as your Tennis Director. I am resigning my position effective June 15.

After thoughtful consideration, reaching this moment has assuredly been difficult for me, as I am deeply appreciative of this rich teaching and directing experience and thankful for the opportunity to “serve up tennis” to the vibrant La Madrona-Santa Cruz tennis playing community these past 10 years.

My reasons for leaving are both personal and professional. My youngest child has just graduated from Scotts Valley High School and will be off to UC Davis; my significant other and I wish to formally “team-up” after years of long-distance; I will be competing in the Senior World Championships in Finland through the end of this month, and hope to pursue other high-level competitive and coaching opportunities. I am looking forward to this new direction with excitement and enthusiasm.

I wish to thank La Madrona members for their most generous support and friendship throughout these years. As I plan to travel frequently between Santa Cruz and San Diego, I hope to see you on the courts now and then. Keep moving your feet and hitting those winners!

Judy Newman
