Monday, July 17
Ratings: Would you like to have a tennis rating? The club has arranged to have two pros from outside of the club come and run a ratings clinic. The pros are USTA trained. The event is scheduled for this Wednesday, July 19 at 6:00 and 7:00. The pros would like to have at least six players sign up for the clinic. Members will be charged $10 and will receive a written statement of their rating. A sign-up sheet for the event is posted on the porch bulletin board.
Here's a link to our FAQ on how tennis ratings work, and another link explaining the different levels, for those of us who don't know what a 3.5 player is.
Round Robin: The next round robin, a pizza night, is scheduled for Tuesday, July 18. Tennis starts at 6:00.
Arranged Pairs/Mixed Doubles Tournament: Here's a link to the draw. (The draw itself was done in Java by our mysterious, anonymous friend. Thanks again, Anon.) The semi-finals of the tournament are scheduled for July 22 and the finals for July 23.
Summer Membership: Summer membership has begun. Summer members should try to come to round robins, Sunday pick-up doubles, and parties like the one that the club hosts on the 4th of July. The club is quite sociable, especially at the tennis parties.
Mid-Summer Reminders from the Board of Governors:
1) "We ask that cell phones not be brought on to the deck or the courts;
2) Children under 14 are to be accompanied by an adult or older companion except during the time a child is playing tennis with the person responsible for him/her or is taking a lesson."
