 Mentoring Session - Thank Yous  Watch the Calendar
 Rating Clinics - Weather Cancellations    Upcoming Instruction Clinics

Mentoring Clinic a Success!

We had 16 members out for a mentoring session on June 11th who were either rated 2.5 or had no rating.  The session was 2 hours long which was split into doing drills for the first 1 1/4 hours followed by some game play. We split the the participants into groups of 4 and had them cycle through 4 different courts learning a new drill on each court (serving, returning, dinking, volleys, forehand/backhand ground strokes). This was our first time doing mentoring session in this fashion and it went very well and lots of positive feedback was received from the participants.  Thanks go to Ken Dentzien for organizing and managing this mentoring session as well as to our very capable instructors for their time and dedication to support these new members; these instructors were - Jeanine & Art Au, Kelsey Hennig, John Abrahamson, Brad Hurshoway and Bill Moyes

Watch the Calendar

Just a reminder to members to check the calendar for Alpine before attending scheduled play sessions as occasional changes are made based upon playing patterns and volumes of folks playing at each session. 

Please also be reminded that we do not have the courts on July 1st; you will note that those sessions have been removed in the Alpine Calendar.

Finally, a volunteer thank you is scheduled for Saturday, June 18th which is why there is no scheduled play for that day.  If it rains on the 18th, the volunteer appreciation will take place on the 19th and the calendar will be changed if/when that decision is made.

No Re-Booking of Cancelled Rating Clinics

Please note that we are not re-booking the rating clinics that were cancelled due to the recent poor weather until such time as we get a new date from our raters (which likely will not be until September); for those impacted by this, you will have more time to hone your skills before the next rating clinics are scheduled.
