We will be offering Beginner/Year Round Clinics (no match play) as well as team play this summer.
All players who play team matches need to be members of the USTA ($20 fee for 1-year membership), and will also be responsible for a small team fee (< than $20) payable to the USTA. Instructions for team sign up will be provided closer to the start of the season.
The program focuses on introducing beginner players to the basic skills and scoring. The older intermediate and advanced level players will learn to improve their skills, develop strategies, and compete in league matches.
