August Junior Drill session has begun! Kids can start whenever they want and need to get a minimum of just 6 classes/drills in for the four week session (can come as much as they want!). Click on Junior Drills under "Tennis" for further details. 
Courts can be reserved no earlier than 8:00am Monday - Sunday. You will notice a slight change to the court sheets Mon-Thu afternoons and evenings. To accommodate an increase in play then, the courts are now available in set "blocks" of mostly 1 1/2 hr and some 1 hr time slots. Please reserve your time within these blocks so we will have more available court time as there will be no "wasted" slots remaining. If you want to play for just one hour, please reserve just the one hour block of time. If you have any questions, email me at Also please closely review ALL the info on the "Rules and Court Reservations" area on this website. 
For Junior info, click on "Tennis" tab then go to "Junior Drills & Tennis Team".

Junior Club Tournament (yellow ball players) - Friday, July 31 11am - 3pm. No advanced sign-up required., just show up!

Come out this Sat ??th and Sun ??th to watch some great tennis! Some of the area's best players will be competing in our annual Men's Open Doubles Championships. Saturday matches start at 9:30am and run continually until the last match of the day at 2:30pm. Sunday's final will be at 3pm. (Times subject to change if bad weather). 
Can I get someone to bring coffee from a coffee shop and another to bring bagels from Brueggers Saturday morning for the spectators. It would be much appreciated!  
There will a couple courts open to reserve Saturday morning and then, weather permitting, all the courts will be available starting at 5pm. There will be courts open Sunday morning and early evening. However, they will not be open to reserve until tomorrow later in the afternoon.
