Junior Saturday Match Play Continues Through Summer

The pro staff has scheduled some Saturdays throughout the year for HVTC juniors to play practice matches under the direction of one of the club pros. These sessions are for juniors participating in the Tournament Excellence 1, Competitive Training, or Tournament Preparation groups of the Junior Excellence program. Players will be matched up by the pro for singles and doubles play, allowing participants to meet new people, play different styles of games, find practice partners, get some additional competitive play, and—most important—have fun!

The Saturday play during summer will be outdoors, 2-4 pm. Dates are June 21 and 28; July 11, 18, and 25; August 2, 16, 23, and 30. Cost is $10. Call the club to sign up.

New Junior Pro at HVTC Takes State Championship

Maddy Szuba, second singles player for Father Gabriel Richard High School, is State Champion! She went undefeated this season, her senior year, and did not drop a set. Maddy is a soon-to-be junior pro at HVTC. You may have seen her on the court; she is the one who’s always smiling. Congratulations, Maddy!

HVTC B3 Wins!

They overcame injuries, adversity, and tough competition to defeat the perennial powerhouse Liberty A for the title. It was a total team victory, with each member contributing their all.
