April 26th is the opening day for the 2014 club season. We will be having all kinds of activities including free lessons, skills competitions and some refreshments. Bring your tennis gear and some energy that you can burn up on the courts! 10am – 2pm, Thomas Haney Courts. See you there.
Well we beat the weather — mainly due to a great October but we will take it.
Congratulations to Marian Schwaiger for winning the MRTC women’s singles tournament (this was a round robin competition).
Congratulations to Robert Socha (he is the young buck on the right of the photo below). Robert won the MRTC men’s singles final against Tony Leyland 5-7, 6-3, 6-3 …. in a loooong match…… too long for the spectators I fear!
Congratulations to Wayne Lyle and Darryl Michayluk for winning the MRTC doubles championship over Darrell Lester and Tony Leyland (6-1, 3-6, 6-3). Sorry — forgot to get a photo!
Men’s Consolation Winner
Congratulations to John Pagan for winning the Men’s Consolation. Unfortunately Darryl Michayluk is injured and had to concede the final to John.

Welcome back to all those who attended our opening day of 2013. A special thanks to the members who came down and helped with registration, setup / take down and with the on court activities. The weather cooperated for the most part and let us have our time to meet the new members and spend a little time hitting tennis balls
Due to rain, opening day will be postponed until Sunday, April 28th, 10am-2pm.
