TENNIS

Dear Members,

             Summer is in full swing! Have you seen how packed the parking lot has been? Members have been very active playing tennis & pickleball this summer. If you haven’t joined us yet, it is not too late to get out on the courts! Our intro to pickleball classes have brought over 45 members out during June. Let’s keep this great game growing at GLCC. Sign up for an intro class on Monday morning at 8:30 am, Wednesday night at 7:15 pm, or contact me for a private lesson. I am always happy to accommodate your schedule to get you on the court. Cardio tennis has been a blast this summer with all four courts rolling on Wednesday night at 6:00 pm. Friday morning cardio has also given everyone a great workout. If you haven’t tried cardio tennis yet, come out for a complimentary class.

We are excited to host a pickleball clinic with 16-time National Champion Scott Moore. This clinic will be held on Thursday, July 12th from 6:00- 8:00 pm. It is open to members that are a 3.5-4.0 level, $65 per member. Please sign up with Kelly ASAP since there are a limited amount of spots for the clinic.

During the first two weeks of junior classes, we dealt with a lot of rain cancellations. The staff and I are very eager to get things rolling and focusing on proper ground strokes, volleys and serves. There is a lot of energy from the kids this summer and we are excited to help everyone improve their game. July is the month of competition for juniors! We will battle against the local country clubs in 4 matches. Good luck to our players in those matches. We will also host a 10 & under Wild & Crazy Tennis event on Saturday, July 21st from 6:00- 8:30 pm, please RSVP.

New curtains have been hung on the courts to help give privacy to each court and to help with balls rolling onto other courts. I hope everyone enjoys the new feature! Thank you to Jesse and his staff for installing them for us.
