Dear GLCC Members,

The rain can't stop us this summer on the tennis courts at GLCC! I love seeing the courts busy with families enjoying the great sport of tennis. Several of our adult mixers have been cancelled in the beginning of the summer from all of the rain, but we have several coming up in July and August that you won't want to miss out on. during the mixers we run three courts of tennis and two courts of pickleball. If you want to come out and just play tennis or just play pickleball, we will accommodate to what you want to play. 

Have you tried cardio tennis yet? Cardio is offered 2 days a week during the sumemr and it is open for all adult tennis levels. Just drop in and get a great cardio workout hitting baskets of tennis balls. Cardio runs Wednesday night from 6 - 7 pm and Friday from 9 - 10 am.

If you are looking for a little more instruction on court, please contact me for a private lesson or join one of the adult drop-in drills. Tuesday from 9-10 am is our beginner group, Thursday from 8:30 - 10 am is our advanced group and also on Thursday from 10-11:30 am our intermediate group runs. Please contact me if you are unsure which drill to come to.

Our junior tennis program is strong this summer with a lot of excitement from the pros and the players on court. Make sure to sign your player up for the second summer session beginning Monday, July 20th - Wednesday, August 19th. In the month of July, we will play against Battle Creek Country Club and Kalamazoo Country Club. Good luck to our players! We will be running the Junior Club Championship a bit different this year. During each individual class time we will be hosting each level of the tennis club championship. So instead of regular class on August 4th, your child will participate in the club tournament. It allows us to spread out on all 4 courts for each level and get each level done in a reasonable amount of time. I'm excited to see who comes out on top this year. Our Parent/Child Tournament will be played on Sunday, August 9th from 1-3 pm. Make sure to hold those dates and get signed up! 

If you need your racket restrung, regripped or a new tennis racquet, please see me! I am available Monday-Saturday this summer.
