Seasonal Court Time and Men’s Leagues

Seasonal court time gives members the convenience of playing on the same court each week without having to reserve it. Many members rotate 4–6 players depending on their availability. If you are trying to arrange a seasonal court time and need a player to fill in, contact the control desk for some possible leads. Seasonal court time begins Sunday, September 10. Please get your applications in as soon as possible (get the form here). Reservations for seasonal court time are commitments for the entire indoor season.

Men’s league renewals from last year’s participants are due now; men looking to join a league may drop off applications. More information is available at the front desk.

Junior Saturday Match Play

The pro staff has scheduled most Saturdays throughout the summer 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, 2-4pm. Cost is $10. Call the club to sign up.
