July 6th Tennis Happenings

Hello SRTCC Tennis Enthusiasts!

Read on for the tennis events and schedule of this weekend.

Please note: Game arranging will resume its usual schedule this weekend. See the Weekly Events Schedule below for details.

Cheer our teams on!

Shelter Rock has many women’s and men’s tennis teams, who play at the club throughout the week. Match play is during the day for the women’s teams and in the evening for the men’s teams. Whether you are on a team roster or just want to show some club spirit, come out and support our teams when they play at home. Team schedules are available in the pro shop. (Is that part true? Can we make it true?)

Women’s Member-Guest Day is Friday, July 14th.

Ladies, join us for a morning of fun round robin tennis and a delicious luncheon to follow. Bring a nonmember friend or team up with another SRTCC member. Cost is $100 per team. If you are signing up with another member, the cost is $50 for each member.

Sign-up sheet are posted on the Bulletin Board.

Play for Pink

A great way to have fun while raising money for a worthy cause. Sunday, August 20th. Shelter Rock gives back by hosting “Play for Pink” in conjunction with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. There are many ways to be involved, including playing tennis! If you are interested in helping out in any way other than playing tennis, please contact Ellen Fuller, the Play for Pink Committee Chairperson.

How about a midsummer refresher lesson with one of our pros?

Private, semi private or small group drills and lessons are a great way to boost your game. Rick, Robin, and Alex are available to help perfect your serve, improve your topspin, work on your footwork or anything else you might want to work on. Contact the Pro Shop for times and availability.

A few important bits of info from our playbook…

Game Arranging

Game Arranging is a great way to meet other members and mix up who you play with. Although it is one of the best things we do at SRTCC, it is a challenge for the Pro staff to organize week in and week out. It is very important that you don’t cancel at the last minute unless it is necessary, or show up without signing up. If possible, make every effort to be there if you sign up. Canceling at the last minute makes the process of organizing this difficult and ensures a delayed start.

Court Etiquette

  • Crossing over the court is not allowed, even if it’s a shorter route to your court. It is only acceptable if the players on the court give you permission.
  • Please be courteous when walking behind a court people. Wait for the point to be over, move quickly, and respect the players by keeping silent.
  • Please don’t use your phone when you are around any tennis court
  • Let the group about to be replaced finish their point.

Dress Code

Please remember to abide by the SRTCC dress code when playing tennis on our outdoor courts. Members, please do not approach another member about his or her attire. It is best to make a staff member or board member know about the situation and let them handle it.
