Mixed Madness Tournament

Labor Day weekend is host to our Mixed Madness Tournament! Saturday, September 2nd and Sunday, September 3rd. Possibly one of SRTCC’s most unpredictable mixed doubles tournaments. Teams are chosen out of a hat and then the fun begins. Sign up is required. Please visit the pro shop for more information.

Looking forward…

It is not too early to think about winter games.

SRTCC is a 4 season club. Tennis continues well into the winter and is played in our bubble and in the indoor house. If you are interested in joining a weekly drill or finding a weekly game, our pros can point you in the right direction. Stop by the pro shop for more information.

ASK ALEX

This week’s question comes from “Order on the Court”.

What happens if somebody serves out of order?

The answer is simple.

If you realize a Doubles team had served out of order after the fact, then the match continues on in the corrected original rotation of servers. If you make this discovery during a game then immediately stop play and make the correction, then continue the game as is. Regardless of who was serving, all completed points stand as played previous to the discovery.

Keep those questions coming! Just ask Alex!

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.
