imgHello members,

September already! For all parents out there it’s back to school time and for all tennis fans, the next couple of weeks are filled with U.S. Open excitement. Next thing you know the fall equinox is here. How time flies… The start of the month seems to be a busy one for everyone and it is no different for our tennis programming.

Monday September 12 marks the start of our Fall Junior Session and the new USTA season. There is almost two weeks left to register to our junior program and spots are filing up fast. This fall, we will experiment with keeping classes to six juniors per instructor so, please, don’t wait until the last minute to register as we anticipate some days and times might have a waiting list. If you have any questions concerning our junior program, don’t hesitate to contact me. This USTA season, we have seven teams registered and a there’s a chance for everyone to compete and play at a level or another. If you are interested in joining one of our teams, you can contact the team captain to inquire about open space. The official match schedule for every team will be finalized and up on the NorCal USTA website by Wednesday September 7.

Finally, here are some events to look forward to this fall; Rookie week will offer a chance to get back into the game or experiment it for the first time during the week of October 9-15. We are also planning on having a club championship with more details to come soon.

In the meantime, I hope to see you all on the courts.

When working toward your optimal fitness goals it is good to think of what might make you the strongest and feel your best. The answer may be as simple as learning to control and work with your own body weight. Digging deep into your core to find how to balance and fundamentally move well. TRX may be just the answer to your optimal fitness goals.

TRX was born in the Navy SEAls, suspension training bodyweight develops strength, balance, flexibility and core stability all together.

Tips from the Nutritionist: Fill Up on Fiber This Fall!


Public health guidelines from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advise Americans to eat between 20 and 30 grams of fiber per day, but most adults don't even eat half that much. Fiber is found in plants, it helps the body eliminate waste materials and also feeds our good gut bacteria. Fiber also plays an important role in blood sugar regulation by slowing down the body’s process for breaking down carbohydrates during digestion. If you want to benefit from more fiber, resist the urge to buy “high fiber products” such as cereals, bread, and bran muffins, which are made from processed grains. Instead focus on eating more whole foods in the form of vegetables, rice, quinoa, fruits, beans, nuts, and seeds.

Best Sources: Leafy Greens, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, beans, fruits (with the skin whenever possible), starchy squash, yams, tubers and potatoes, Gluten Free Whole Grains (quinoa, millet, wild rice), nuts, and chia and flaxseeds.
