June Update

June was a great month for tennis.  Great weather and only one cancellation.

Doubles league started out strong, the teams of Casey DeJong/Keith Hoeschen and Matt Verant/Dave Hammer remain undefeated.  The Player’s Page is live, and contains standings and score updates.  Contact Us if you need the password.

LAR youth lessons were well attended, with over 30 area youth participating.  Looking forward to another great turn out in Session 2 starting Monday, July 10.  

The afternoon jamboree for middle school and junior varsity was attended by 15 players.  Another jamboree is scheduled for the end of July. The July jamboree will run all day, lunch provided.

Remember when playing singles challenge matches to report scores via the score reporting link on the Player’s Page, or on the Contact Us page.

A big THANK YOU to Craig Mische for the updated photos now on our page!
