Volunteers needed October 29th

We need volunteers to help pack up the club furniture Saturday, October 29th at 10 AM (rain date is Sunday). This usually takes an hour or so. Please come by, see your friends on court for the last time in 2016 at WTC, and help us wrap up the season.

The water for the shower and the court sprinklers has been turned off so that the pipes don’t freeze. Oval Tennis will come by November 1st or 2nd to take down the nets and pull up the lines. If they arrive and you are playing, you will have to exit and let them do their job, but this is one time where you don’t have to sweep!

Year-end court news from Karen

Sadly, the outdoor tennis season is coming to a close. We’ve been so lucky to have such glorious weather these past three weeks and the courts have still been fairly busy. I’d like to thank everyone for another great season at the club. Everyone worked well together to make it a fun and easy season. I hope everyone has a great winter and continues to play either at BAT, HVIT or Total Tennis. Stay healthy!

Best, Karen

Sunday, September 25 Event

The Bondholder’s meeting will be held on Sunday at 11AM.

The End of the Year Party will be held right after the meeting at about Sunday Noon. This is a Pot Luck Party, meaning the club will just provide food for the BBQ. If you are coming, please bring something to eat. Salads, finger foods, etc. People who do not cook (you know who you are!) can bring beer. If you like wine please bring wine. Jesse will be the Grill Master!

We will be playing tennis, so come dressed to play. We expect the party people to take up all the courts. Party is from 12-3.

Men’s Doubles: Vern Chrisjohn and Rob Sohm defeated Jess Chalfin and Ravi Ramaswami 7-6 (7-4), 2-6, 6-1.
