As of this posting, it has been 87 days since our fall cleanup day, and we have 87 days until the deadline for early payment of dues for 2018. Only 107 days until WTC’s planned 2018 opening. In case you are a long-range planner, the site is updated – rates and applications are available.
Or, you can wait for our newsletter mailing a little closer to spring.
End-of-season volunteer clean-up is SATURDAY, NOV 4 @ 10AM.
We will be picking up all the benches, chairs, BBQ, and placing them in the clubhouse for winter hibernation. Please come to help! If we get 10 volunteers, it usually just takes an hour or so. If it is pouring rain, the rain date will be Sunday, November 5 at 10 :00 AM.
Oval Tennis is coming to pick up the lines and nets sometime the week of Nov 6th. You can play until they come, but please vacate the courts if they arrive and you are on court.
New Management (same ownership – the members!)
After 9 years, Karen Gill is leaving the Head Pro position. Mitch Adler will return as Head Pro in 2018. Mitch and Steve Josephs will be giving indoor lessons at BAT this winter, so please email or call them.
Sharon Crego will be the Club Manager in 2018.
Mitch Adler, next year’s head pro, is looking to rent a 1 or 2 bedroom house or apartment on this side of the river. If you have a lead, please contact him directly at 541-914-1728 or email@example.com. Also, group and private lessons with Mitch will continue as long as the weather permits.
Free Community play starts on Sunday, October 1. Please welcome new faces. If they are not familiar with the Club’s policies, remind them to sign in and sweep after playing. Free play does not include weekend mornings (even for current Members).
Steve Josephs would like to thank everyone for the lovely card and gift certificate he received from some of the Thursday Night Mix n’ Match regulars. He is very appreciative and looks forward to another successful season next year.
Both Steve and Mitch will be teaching at Black Acre this winter.
Closing Day for the Club is usually around November 1st.

Karen says: Our 2017 Fall Open Tournament was a huge success both on and off the court. We had several very entertaining matches with lots of spectators and Lynn Patterson, once again, provided us with a great spread at our end of the year party. Thank you Lynn! Many agreed that this was our best tournament ever and certainly the hottest one I can remember in years. Steve Josephs and I would like to thank everyone that participated in the tournament and came to watch. We had a great time organizing it!
