Saturday Night African Dance With Deb Voisin
New Beginners class and Memorial day Tournament
Weather is getting nicer, there’s more daylight day after day, it can only mean this; Spring is here and summer is around the corner but it also means more chances to hit the courts with your friends and family. Whether you like to play USTA or just with friends, are an expert or a very beginner, we have it all here at the club. Here’s an overview of what is coming in the next couple months:
If you participate in USTA events, you know that it is non-stop and year round, season after season… Right now, we are in the middle of the 18&Over season and we have 6 teams representing La Madrona. But it is also time to start thinking about the mixed 18&Over season coming up at the end of June. Stay tuned if you are interested, I will announce the possible teams we will have in the next couple of weeks.
On the club events front, we have a lot going on. We still have 5 weeks left to our Junior Session and you can all still register for it as we always prorate our sessions. Next come 2 important events at the club;
- After a very successful first beginners class, we will have our second one start on Tuesday May 15th from 6-7pm.
- Mark your calendar for a Memorial Day Tournament. On May 28th. Details to come...
If you are interested in any of these 2 events, please contact our Tennis Director at [email protected].
Finally, in the upcoming months, we will be celebrating the club’s 50th anniversary, we are working on a wooden racquet tournament so get your old wooden racquets out of the closets and start looking for your McEnroe or Evert outfits… That will be a fun and exciting Event! Official date to come soon!
As Always, feel free to contact me with any suggestions and/or comments about your tennis life at La Madrona. We are always looking for ways to improve.
See you all on the courts
