Adult tennis programs begin June 19th and run through the 8-week season. All men and women are invited to participate in the morning programs, which run every weekday at the Bay View Lake Courts. This includes men’s doubles, women’s doubles, and mixed doubles every single day. The sessions begin at 8:30am and there is an additional 10am session on Mondays and Wednesdays. There are also a number of tournaments scheduled throughout the season (see list below). Tennis at Bay View is for everyone at every level. Please come out and join us.
The Summer Youth Tennis Program offers a variety of activities to keep our kids developing into both competitive players and players who want to learn the game and have some fun. Each youth player will be tested on a set list of skills and will be placed at a level in which they may continue to confidently flourish. Testing for levels will take place on Mondays at 12:30pm. Advancement will be determined by leaders. Junior Level includes Level 4 lessons and Junior Development.
Because of the Junior Tournament and the Ernie Gray Olympics, there will NOT be any scheduled junior tennis lessons for ANY level during the 5th week. This week will be dedicated to the Junior Tournament. Please note: the $20 tournament fee is included in the season lesson rate for Level 4 and JD players. Players that have not paid the Level 4 or JD season rate will need to pay the $20 tournament fee.
Each Friday the Youth Tennis Program holds a raffle at the courts, a tradition that the kids all love and look forward to. Raffle items generally include anything from a jump rope or yo-yo to tennis rackets and gift cards. Please consider donating raffle items, big or small - the kids love them all!
Speaking of donations, we can always use used tennis balls as well. If you are interested in donating, just drop them at the courts.
The Bay View Tennis Club will be offering a new Junior Development Varsity group lesson on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3-5pm.
