Hi Ladies,

Hope you are enjoying the warm, summer weather and playing a lot of tennis.

The time to sign up for the August events is July 1. The August Salad Bar Luncheon is on Wednesday, August 3, from 8am to 1pm at Hinkley Park. It begins with social tennis followed by a luncheon in the park outside the courts. Each participant brings a dish to share and we always have a delicious buffet. It is also a great opportunity to visit with friends.

The August Tennis Clinic will be on Thursday, August 4 from 7-9pm (Rain date Saturday, August 6 from 9-11am). If you attended the June or July clinic you are not eligible for this one unless there is space available.

We have four evenings of Tennis Under the Stars Tournaments, all will be at Hinkley from 5-9pm. Following the play, we will go to Harp & Fiddle for social time. The doubles tournament for the B/C division will be on Monday, August 8. The A doubles will be on Thursday, August 11. The singles tournament for the B/C level will be on Monday, August 15. This is followed by the A singles on Thursday, August 18.

Thanks to Ann Iremedio and Diane Ramoska for chairing the June Clinic. It is always an enjoyable and beneficial event.

Congratulations to the winners of the June Weekday Tournaments:

A Doubles- 1st Place Lesley Bantle/Nicole Toft, 2nd Place Laura Briars/Amy Konwal

B Doubles- 1st Place Colette Lane/Mary Elworth, 2nd Place Helen Jackson/Kristen Lay

A Singles- 1st Place Amy Noble, 2nd Place Kathy Wood

Thanks to Sharon Porter and Janet Joyce for organizing the tournaments, as well as all who played on those really hot days.

Again, beginning July 1, you can sign up for the August events. To register, click on the link in the middle of the home page or go to Tennis Events on the right side and click on the event you want to sign up for. That link will also give you the names of the chairpersons if you need to contact them. If you want to see if you have signed up, go to the specific event on the right side of the page and you will get the list of participants.

On another topic, many of you who do not play during the day may not be aware of the parking restrictions along the park on Busse. It was designated as a pay to park zone a few years ago. Our association went to the city council and requested it be changed to free parking and they approved it! We can legally park on the park side of Busse for free. There is also still free parking in the lot along Northwest Highway.

It has been a great season so far with our courts being filled with PRWTA players for open play, challenges and our events. If you haven’t played any challenges yet, remember you need 5 to be a Member in Good Standing, 2 of which must be singles if you are on both ladders. Review the rules on the right side of the website as needed. Hope to see you all this summer.
