Hello Everyone. Below are a few Informational items for the club.
We have moved our Club meeting date from the 1st to Monday November 8 at 4:30 PM. We will be meeting at the skybox area. Please plan on attending.
Courts 3 and 4 are under repair. Provided the weather holds, it may be another two weeks before they are ready. That leaves us with 4 courts. (8 matches assuming two rounds of play) Where we need additional courts, we have talked to Val Vista about being able to use two of their courts for league play. Susan Ford (VV President) and I are working out a reservation system with VV management. We will likely need additional courts for our 3.0 men and 3.5 men and ladies. Courts 1,2,5 and 6 are playable but due to the repair work nearby, they are pretty dusty. We are limited to using brooms and blowers at this time. Water might impact the areas under repair.
We have two ball machines ready for use. They are in the cabinets on courts 2 and 5. Gerry Mauer supplied them with new balls.
Harold Patterson has put together a court schedule and will be sending out a worksheet showing, match play, practice and fun tennis times. Social tennis is returning with 3 play times per week.
Loretta is working on our coaching plan. We will share that information when available. We are looking for several volunteers to coach beginner tennis. We have had several inquires from potential new members. Hal will be returning mid-December. Please contact Loretta if you can help us. Its usually just an hour session.
The 4.5 EVSTL men will be playing at Mesa Regal Friday, November 5 from 9-noon. 2.5 match play is scheduled out of the park so this will not be interfering with our league play. Please come down and watch the action.
Last, some of you are experiencing you tennis club emails going to spam. Albano suggests you add mrtennis.org to your contact list. I put mrtennis.org in my contacts both as first name, last name and company. It seems to have solved the problem. If you hear of someone not hearing from the club, please share this information.
