Dear Members,

Another great summer is officially in the books! Thank you to everyone for joining the staff and I on court and making it such a fun summer! It's not too late to pick up your tennis racquet during the fall season and keep working on your tennis game. Ia m available while the weather stays nice to continue tennis lessons out here at GLCC. Please contact me to find out what classes are still running during September or to set up a private lesson.

The junior classes brought a lot of energy to the courts this summer. I saw improvements in every player in the program and I can't wait to see what next year brings! Over the summer, the juniors competed in four tough tennis matches against BCCC and KCC. The excitement on court didn't stop there, the juniors worked hard in class all summer long and with over 115 kids in the program we had a very competitive Junior Club Championship. The winners are listed below. Thanks to everyone that played tennis this summer.

The Men's Monday night tennis league had another great summer season. Great job to Dan Rackiewicz for running the doubles league and setting up the rotations every week! Thanks to the men that played in our new Singles League. I'm hoping to build the league up for next summer, so keep practicing your singles game! Our cardio tennis classes were also rocking all summer long to the fun songs of the 80s. Friday morning cardio will continue to run September 11th-October 2nd. 

Can you believe that it is time to start thinking about platform tennis? I can't believe it is almost here. The kick-off mixer will be on Friday, October 16th from 6:30 - 8:30 pm! The platform lesson and league schedule will be emailed out soon. Make sure to let me know if you are looking for a new paddle. Sleeves of balls will always be available for sale in the GLCC front office.
