Dear Members and Friends,
Time sure flies when you’re having fun! I can’t believe we’re already half-way through the season. And while the rain has been a challenge it certainly hasn’t put a damper on our spirits.
- Our intrepid teams have been soldiering on arranging their make up matches while doing us proud in the standings.
- Our enthusiastic Kaffeeklatsch members, often seen sponging off the courts early Tuesday and Friday mornings, packed the clubhouse and enjoyed a delicious Strawberries and Cream Wimbledon Lunch in spite of stormy skies.
- Sunday evening house league, with its newly re-organized format of four teams and 1 ½ hour matches has attracted many new members to its roster.
- With the introduction of Friday evening round robins, our members have more opportunity to enjoy friendly, competitive matches.
- Our junior membership continues to grow as families enjoy playing together Sunday afternoons from 2 to 4 pm and tiny tykes, introduced to tennis for the first time, are seen rallying with mini racquets and nets.
- And in spite of the cool, wet spring, we managed to dodge the rain thus far at all of our socials, with well over 100 on average enjoying great food, fun tennis and good old Don Mills camaraderie.
- Now, as summer temperatures start to climb we are fortunate to have an air-conditioned clubhouse for our junior campers, teams and Kaffeeklatschers to seek relief from the daytime heat. Let’s hope the weather is a little more cooperative for the rest of the season.
