News from Central Coast Tennis
February was definitely one of the coldest months we’ve had on the Central Coast in a long, long time! Despite all the chilly, gusty days, we managed to squeeze in our Valentine’s doubles mixer… and we had a great turnout!! A huge thanks to all 30 players who came out to join us, it really was a fun evening! We have moved our St. Patricks’ Day Mixer to Friday, March 16th from 5:00 to 6:30pm as Friday evening’s seem to work much better for most of our members, so please mark your calendars now & let’s make this the best turnout ever!
Our new ball machine has arrived and it is totally awesome! It is a playmate i-smash and can do a lot of great things for your tennis game. If you are looking to groove a stroke, have a really good cardio work out or simply fine-tune your game, the i-smash machine is the answer. It is really user friendly and there is no limit to the number of drills you can do with it, so come on out and give it a try…it won’t disappoint!
Several of our members participated in the Central Coast Tennis Exchange Circuit last year and it proved to be a ton of fun. There is a really good chance that the circuit will be offered again this Spring and we hope that many of you will be interested in participating in it once again. This program offers men’s, women’s & mixed doubles competition in a relaxed environment with other participating clubs. It is comprised of 2 divisions, B & B+ and A-/A, and teams consist of 4 women & 4 men. Match format is 2 women’s doubles/2 men’s doubles & then 2 mixed doubles. If you are interested in playing in this circuit, please contact us at the Tennis Pro Shop at 937-3222.
Cardio Tennis is back in full swing again, so if you are looking for more variety in your weekly exercise program, come and give it a try. Cardio Tennis features music, tennis games and drills for players of all abilities and fitness levels. It helps burn excess calories and can have a tremendous impact on improving overall court movement. Our Cardio Tennis classes are held on Mondays from 10:15 to 11:15 am and are a great way to kick-start the week!
Our Winter Junior Group classes came to an end last week and we had a lot of fun with all our students! The Spring session begins on Monday, March 5th and runs through Friday April 27th. It is a 7 week session and offers classes for children aged 4 through 18. Registration for this session is still open and you can register at the SMCC tennis pro shop or e-mail us at email@example.com.
The BNP Open Pro tennis tournament in Indian Wells is taking place this month and so we would like to wish all our SMCC members who are going to it a fantastic time! We hope that you come back to Santa Maria all inspired to play more tennis! This two week event has now become the fifth grand slam of tennis (not officially) and it is right here on our doorstep. Anyone looking to see the best players in the world up close & personal, this is definitely the tournament to visit!
We are looking forward to seeing you all on the courts soon!
