TENNIS

Dear Members,

           It was a busy summer on the tennis and pickleball courts. Thank you to everyone for joining the staff and I on the court and making it such a fun summer! It’s not too lake to pick up your tennis racquet or give pickleball a try during the fall season. I am available while the weather stays nice to continue tennis and pickleball lessons our here at GLCC. Please contact me to join into the small groups 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 tennis matches against BCCC and KCC and they played four practice matches against each other. 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.

Members have been busy playing pickleball this summer. We have all levels at the club and it is always fun to see new people give it a try and then quickly see why it is the fastest growing sport.

Congratulations to Lisa Crandell & Mike Miller on winning our second tournament in August. If you are looking for a new paddle, please contact me, I will have paddles for sale year-round.

Can you believe that it is time to start thinking about platform tennis? The weather is feeling more like late fall which means platform is right around the corner. The kick-off mixer will be on Friday, November 3rd starting oat 6:30 pm. Make sure to let me know if you are looking for a new platform paddle. Sleeves of balls will always be available in the GLCC front office.
