Fun Day after Thanksgiving; Help Second Harvest Food Bank

Join us on Sunday, November 26, 9am-3:00pm for a day of social tennis, good food, and great fun!  Here's a chance to help those who didn't get mashed potatoes and turkey.  Bring some non-perishable food to fill the donation barrels, and you'll get a raffle ticket for a very special prize.  Food items most needed are listed here.

Register for Fun Day here.   Remember, the price goes up the longer you wait!  Credit given in case of rain, so there's no way you can lose by signing up early.  Weather forecast looks great for tennis!

We really need volunteers to help make this event go well.  It's an easy, fun opportunity to get hands-on with behind-the-scenes for a club event.  Contact Lynne McGhee.

Looking for fun tennis?  Here's the answer!

As we get ready for a new year, the club is looking for some people to help this club offer all the activities that make it fun.  Do you enjoy Fun Days?  Then step up and be a co-coordinator for Fun Days.   Did you enjoy the trip to Pajaro Dunes?  Then volunteer to organize next year's trip.  Want more tournaments?  Yes, if you can organize them.  Are you the ultimate party planner?  Then we need you to organize the annual Holiday party.  Was Team Tennis the most fun ever?  Then keep the good times rolling and volunteer to run it next year.  Does anyone miss Twilight Doubles?  We need someone to lead the way onto the courts and then into the pub!

This club works because everyone pitches in.  Please double your fun by contributing to an event that you enjoy
