PTC Summer Lessons and Programming Updates

Happy Summer Everyone,

I just wanted to jump in here with a quick message regarding the conclusion of our first week of 8-sessions, and the availability of lessons packages for the remainder of the outdoor season. We will be planning lessons through the end of September, so stay sharp for the Club Championships by renewing in a lesson series today.

First off, a big thanks to everyone with their patience with the weather delays this season. It has reminded me how much headache could be saved if we had facilities that could accommodate practices in the rain 😛

We have some VERY exciting Tennis initiatives and partnerships for 2019 in our community to announce in the coming weeks, so stay tuned to the PTC newsletter and make sure to enjoy all the hits you can this season.

Lesson Series Renewals and Registration

Spots in lesson groupings are available now to any and all interested players, and also NEW OPTIONS are available via the new SUMMERflex Lesson program (see below).

PARTICIPACTION Community Challenge

Yes, that PARTICIPACTION. If you’re at least my age then you likely remember the commercials with Hal and Joanne on public access television.

Well, PARTICIPACTION is back with a community challenge for us here in Brant County. Fortunately for them, with tennis players on their team we’ve got his competition in the bag! As you can see below, Competitive Night Tennis last night, along with coaching our great kids has me surpassed the WEEKLY GOAL.

Multiply that by the 19 Players we had last night (9 kids and 10 adults) and I’d say we can take on any community 🙂

The challenge starts on Friday, May 31st, so login at the website and/or get the app and join me in testing the limits of what their tracking system can handle and let’s show these community challengers how we really move!
