The WTC Fall Open Tournament starts Sept 9th – 17th. This is a much bigger tournament than the club tourney, so you do have to be available both weekends, although traditionally Steve and I have more flexibility with the women’s draw – up to a point – and depending on the size of the draw. Forms may be downloaded from our forms page.
If you have any questions, ask Karen. 99% of the matches will start at noon on the weekends as to not disrupt Member weekend morning play, except for the Finals on Sept 17th which will coincide with a Club Party.
Junior Camp will end on August 18th.
It’s that time again, almost!!!!!! Our Annual Breast Cancer Options Fundraiser will take place on Tuesday August 8th, 5:30 PM. You must sign up to attend both the drills and dinner. Questions: Alice Goodman 845-304-2191, firstname.lastname@example.org or Patricia Mitchell 845-430-4141 (call or text).

I’m happy to announce a TENNIS ELBOW TALK by Jamie Dreyer, the best selling author of “Tennis Elbow Treatment” at the club Saturday, July 22 at 11 AM. This talk is free. If you would like to attend, send Karen an email. During this brief clinic, you will learn :
- What tennis elbow is and what causes it
- Why RICE can help in the moment but does nothing long term
- The ONE EXERCISE clinically proven to heal tennis elbow once and for all
- Which racquets are the worst for tennis elbow

I’ve had a few complaints lately about noisy dogs distracting players. While we don’t enforce a strict no dog policy, I think that common sense is the best policy. Continue reading 7/19 Court News from Karen (Woodstock Open is coming!)
