Ball Machine Training

We have added a Thursday evening ball machine training at 7-9pm, court #8, for all skill levels, coached by Eddie Jensen. Sessions will begin next Thursday, June 22, and continue every other week through the summer. Limit 8 players.

Beginner Lesson

Tuesday, July 13 is the next beginner-level lesson, 7-9pm, courts #1-2. Watch for more details in the Fix. Signups in the Den are being accepted now. Limit 8 players. These lessons fill up quickly, so get your name in early.

So notice what’s going on in the summer schedule, see below. We’ve added new events and re-scheduled existing events to the evenings to combat the summer heat. There’s beginner-level NPU on Mondays; ABCD Round Robin on Wednesdays; Skinny Singles, Ball Machine training, and Beginner Lessons on Thursdays. All these are at 7-9PM. Pretty full schedule for the off-season


Reminders … sign up in the Den every time you play; pick up loose ends, balls into their holders, fans turned off, when you leave the courts.
