Dear MIYC Members –

On behalf of Chris and the tennis committee, I wanted to follow the Sailing Committee’s lead and send you info about our program this summer. Chris and the tennis committee are excited for another great season, yet we too realize that we have to be flexible and ready to modify in this crazy time.

The tennis program will have a kick off Meet Greet and Play party on Sunday, June 28th   from 3:00 – 5:00.  Lessons and clinics will begin on Monday, June 29th.  This first week of our season will also feature a Friday night pick up Doubles Social (aka Cocktail Tennis) on Friday July 3rd from 4:30 – 6:30. On Saturday July 4th there will be a Parent Child tournament from 9:00-12:00.

Attached you will find a full listing for clinics, events and tournaments.

The tennis program will also have a Sponsored Guest program similar to the sailing program. We’d like to get more local kids involved with our tennis program to make it more dynamic for everyone. So if you know a child that would like to be part of clinics and lessons please call me or Chris.

See you on the courts.  Stay well everyone!

And Let us know if you have any questions.
