Summer is almost here, School is almost over for all and weather can't be better for tennis!
We all know that means that our courts and club are about to get busier and busier. So I would like to remind everyone to be courteous on the courts and respect our reservation policies. Please respect our 1.5hr reservation policy and avoid booking a court for your single or doubles match for more than the allowed time. Lately, we have seen players book courts under two different players names of the same group to be able to play two or three hours straight. That is not fair to other players looking for some fun tennis time and we might bring a new policy to avoid such practice. With our limited court availability, we understand that booking a court is sometimes hard but this practice makes it even harder for some to play.
Good news on the tennis courts front, we are presently seeing a lot of progress on courts 2 & 3 as they started the final stages this week. We have seen them seal and level the courts and apply a first coat of primer. The courts are looking great and as I am writing this, I am told that they should be ready for play on Friday or Saturday June 4-5th. FINGERS CROSSED! But one thing for sure is that the finish line is really close. Thank you all for your patience! Finally on that front, the club is looking into the possibility of taking the tent on court 1 once the mask mandate is lifted. More on that once we have a more precise date for it.
Finally, league play is finally back and the USTA 18&over is about to start. Also from the USTA, their 40&over league is accepting registration starting next week. If you would like to register a team contact me. For all interested players, we have a local league about to start soon with a few different levels of play. Please get in touch with me if you are interested in joining the league.
Enjoy your summer and remember to use sunscreen, hydrate well and have some fun on the court!
See you all out there.
Can you believe it? It feels like summer has finally arrived. The sun is back to being bright, shiny and warm. Our pools are starting to shimmer under the late afternoon sun and I hope you find them cool and welcoming. While you are playing and splashing in the pool please remember to keep a close eye on your little ones.
We are proud to announce that we added two more swim instructors to the aquatic staff with the hope of more to come. Since there is very strong interest in swimming lessons, we want to give every opportunity to take a class. If you are interested let us know.
Parent & Me is coming back!! After a long awaited hiatus, Parent & Me swim class will be available this summer. This class is designed for our youngest swimmers (ages 6 months to 2.5 years) and their parent or other favorite adult to learn to immerse them comfortably in the water in a fun, warm environment. Classes will be 30 minutes in length and offered on Tuesdays/Thursdays at 11am for two weeks starting on June 8th. Registration before attending is required. If you would like to sign up, please contact the Aquatics Department.
Lastly, the week of June 14th will see the return of our annual Pool Guards summer program. The Pool Guards will be using the full space of the lap pool during those weekday mornings. Our regular lap swimmers are encouraged to use the rec pool as additional lane lines will be made available during that time.
We will see you around the pools!
Pool Supervision Reminder
Please remember that all children under age 14 must be DIRECTLY SUPERVISED by their parent or guardian, even when a lifeguard is on duty.
There is no substitute for paying close attention to your child while swimming. Accidents can happen at any depth of water, even to the best swimmers!
Last week our beloved member Veronique Evenhouse lost her battle with ALS. As we grieve her passing, we are thankful for the opportunity to have had such an amazing woman be part of our La Madrona family. Any continued support you wish to provide is greatly appreciated.
