Should we get a spot shower the camp staff will have games and activities under the pavilion at the club. In the event that rain would cause a cancelation an email will be sent out no later than 8:30am that morning. Campers can then use that day as a credit to attend a day session another week of the summer. Please contact Jacob with any questions regarding weather.

Singles League

SINGLE LEAGUE FORMAT FOR FIVE MATCHES

We are exploring ideas to provide the opportunity for competitive singles play. At the present time we are hoping to have a league composed of multiple divisions, each division having members of similar skill level. We also hope to have a regular night(s) during the week for players to show up for impromptu singles play and/or drills, and some clinics to improve on our singles skills.
