Dear GLCC Members,

Come and join all the fun on the tennis courts this summer. We have so many exciting events coming up. We have a number of adult mixers in July and August with a first of its kind event on Friday, August 12th. This unique adult event won't require many skills on the tennis court, yet you are guaranteed to have a blast. This event will be perfect for couples that range in all ability levels. You could have the least amount of skills on the tennis court, yet win big that evening. Stay tuned for more details on this event! 

Do you play pickleball in Florida or around the Kalamazoo area? If so, you need to join us on the GLCC pickleball courts! Come out on Thursday, July 7th at 6:30 pm to help break in all 4 pickleball courts. I would love to get members who have played the game for years, along with those members that have only played a few times or have been thinking about trying it out. Appetizers and drinks will be served during the event. Please RSVP with me.

Have you tried cardio tennis yet? Cardio is offered 2 days a week during the summer 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 on Friday morning 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. Thursday morning 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. I am also running a 5 hour private lesson special for only $290. 

It is great to see the kids back on the tennis court this summer. We had a large group of our kids participate in the middle school program with Coach Ben, and all of their hard work this spring shows! Our kids are more determined than ever to get better at this great sport. New this summer, we will be running a Tennis Teen Night on Thursday, July 21st (new date!) and Saturday, August 6th from 6 - 9 pm. There will still be an event, Wild & Crazy Tennis Night for the elementary age kids on Saturday, July 16th from 6 - 8 pm. The kids have a very busy month of competition too! All 4 tennis matches against the other country clubs will be happening in July. Good luck to our players!

In August, we slow down a little bit with our competition and will just be running our Junior Club Championship on Tuesday, August 15th. The championship will be held during the regular class time that day. Come out and watch your child play! 

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
