Fall may be right around the corner but the weather is still perfect as can be to play some tennis, or pickleball. We have new courts and nets on all 6 bottom courts and it could not get much better. Well! Ok! Except for court 1 but that will come back some day. A couple months back, we were anticipating a return of court 1 but with all that is happening, it will have to wait some more. With the return of court 1, we will have 4 new pickleball courts! This will be great four our Pickle enthusiasts. Until then we have temporary lines for 1 pickleball court by the tent and you may reserve it by calling our front desk. If you are a pickle fan, please let us know by reaching out to us via email as we hope to bring a social pickleball event to the club in September. Stay tuned for dates and times to come.
New courts, some pickleball opportunities. What else is new? All of our clinics are back with clinics every day except Monday. Remember that we are capping our clinics to 6 participants and that we will need at least 3 to hold any clinics. Coming at the end of September is a new toddler class on Sundays and a new beginners drop in class on Thursdays from 6-730pm. We also have a new 7.0 mixed league about to start and we hope to start an intramural mixed league for 7.5+ teams. Also starting shortly, will be our Junior Team tennis with a 12U orange ball team and a 14U yellow team. As you can see, we are staying busy and we hope that you will all participate in one or more of our new offerings.
Finally, we unfortunately have to cancel our Labor Day mixed invitational. We had the hopes of making it a giant event with food, prizes and live music but we have to postpone it. We will keep you posted for our next big tennis event in the near future and we hope that you can all attend.
Well! That's it for now! As always I am open to comments, suggestions, questions or even rants… ;-) you know where to find me
See you all on the courts
Happy Autumn Everyone!
The days are starting to get a bit busier with children returning to schools and parents returning to the office. The pools during the late weekday afternoons and weekends are a great escape to relax and rejuvenate. Parents, babysitters, and guardians while your family is enjoying the water, please continue to be vigilant of your children. It only takes a moment for a child to step into water too deep and be out of reach!
Fall Swim Team program is being offered in two 6-week sessions. Early Fall and Late Fall. Early Fall will span from August 16th to September 24th. There will be no aquatics program on Labor Day, Monday 6th September. Late Fall will be from September 27th to November 5th. Registration is currently open for A, B, and C groups in Late Fall. We do still have spaces available in Late Fall, if you are interested in registering your swimmer(s), please let me know. Groups A and B can swim up to 4 days a week. We
will offer two days during the week for our C Group, Mondays and Thursdays. Details can be found on our website for the Swim Team.
The La Madrona Water Polo program will be offered once again during our Late Fall session. Our water polo program will introduce children to a sport that combines the elements of soccer, basketball and hockey while swimming. This sport is a fun way for children to enjoy swimming, learn teamwork, and self-confidence. The program will be offered once-a-week on Fridays in the lap pool from 3pm-4:15pm. There will be 18 spaces available for our older group, ages 11-14, and 12 spaces available for our younger age group, ages 6-10. All participants must be able to swim one length of the pool unassisted and tread water for one minute. Registration will open online for members on September 6th at 10am, and non-members on September 13th in person on the pool deck at 10am. We have the details added to the website shortly.
If you have any questions about these programs or are looking to register, please contact the Aquatics Office.
