Summer has come to a close—and I have to say… it was something! It was a challenging couple of months for all of us. But I know that your tennis staff had an incredibly positive experience with our members these past few months. We ended August on such a high note—with 25 juniors joining us for our Friday match play!
In June, we came out of our houses and hit the courts. The pros have had a fabulous experience getting our adults and juniors ACTIVE in a safe and happy way. Tennis has gained national attention as one of the safest activities that one can participate in. We all know that getting outside and running around is a vital component of being healthy, as is the social interaction of meeting old and new friends at the Club!
All Summer long more members joined us on the courts, and this resulted in additional classes being added to our schedules! We were so happy to have our members trusting us to offer classes in a safe way. I can tell you that nearly every day your team of coaches smiled while we chatted about the improvement of our players.
With the Club’s Covid-19 safety protocols, we shifted to total outdoor play with small groups. These small groups allowed your tennis staff to get to know everyone on a more personal level and provide a new level of individualized instruction. This was exciting for our team of coaches—and we’ve received such positive feedback from many of our members that they are delighted with our coaches and classes. These small groups will continue into Fall!
Tennis at the Club this season is going to be exciting with new offerings, and I can’t wait! It’s a very exciting time to be a member of The Aspen Hill Club!
Recently there have been a few stories in the news regarding kids drowning due to a dependency on a flotation device. Our multiple swim instructors are anxious to help you prevent this from happening to your child. In fact, the Aquatic staff is very excited about our summer and assisting your children with their water safety awareness. We have many options over these next few months. June Registrations are out along with a Summer Registration that covers all 11-weeks of summer. Don’t worry if you
cannot do all eleven weeks – we can pro-rate if necessary. If you are enrolling your children into Kids Kamp or Champions Camp you will also have the option to add swim lessons to their daily camp routine.
Don’t wait, slots are filling up fast for the summer session! For more information contact Aquatic Director, James Morrison at ext. 129.
The Summer Outdoor Tournaments will continue June through September. Each tournament is two weeks long. First round matches begin on Monday and/or Tuesday.
There will be no extensions to any tournament. Please do not sign-up for a tournament if you are not available for the full duration of the event. Please be courteous as any scheduling conflict affects the entire tournament and note you may be defaulted if you cannot attend your match.
Matches will be played on the outdoor clay courts, usually beginning at 6:00pm on weekdays and early mornings on the weekends. In the event of rain, matches will be moved inside as long as there are courts available.
All participants will receive a t-shirt and awards will be presented to the finalists in each division. Scoring and play format may vary depending on the size of the draw. Entry deadlines are listed. Players will be contacted about their first round opponent.
Have fun and good luck to all! $20 + tax per entrant
