Tennis Classes are: Beginner 1 and Beginner 2


PRIVATE LESSONS – We will be offering private lessons. There will be a form available to fill out in the near future on our website. Give the manager a few weeks to get the new staff up and running. Look to future newsletters.


CLEAN-UP CREW – Thank you for your big turnout. Because of you, we will be able to open on the 14th. If you still need to get some work credit, please follow up with our Vice President Melissa Garcia.


PARTIES – We will be able to have parties again. Please, wait for the next newsletter for more information on how to schedule. Note: We do not reserve tables anymore. That procedure stopped before the pandemic because too many families were showing up at the pool with nowhere to sit because all the tables were reserved. It will be first come, first serve.


PHOTOS – Please, remember to upload a photo of yourself in Member Splash as we have a lot of new guards and we want them to be able to know who is checking in. If you do not upload a photo in the next month, it’s no problem. The office workers will gladly take a photo of you and your family members.


COVID PROTOCOLS – Same protocol as if you are sick. Stay home if you are not feeling well.


WELCOME BACK! We can’t wait to see all of you again!
