Summer Junior Tennis Wrap Up!

Posted on

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.
