Hey Tennis Team!
Thanks to all our players for making the first half of our 2020 season a great success and so much fun! With so many new players and so many players continuing to improve their skills and athletic capabilities, all our coaches can see the hard work paying off that you are putting in! Next Week is Lesson Week #8 (Final Week), and so we will have concluded PTC Session # 1 by August 8th.
As a reward for our players, we will be running a FUN DAY Challenge Session for Red and Orange Level Beginners on Monday, August 10th at 4pm. Players from classes on Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, some Wednesday players (at their discretion) and private lesson students will be invited to this session where players will be challenged by coaches to achieve a certain goal on target practice or rally skills in order to earn points, climb the leaderboard and win prizes. This is intended as a fun competition for players who are not ready for full match play. Register Here for your spot via email in the FUN DAY Play Session . [warning: candy prizes may be included]
For all players in intermediate and advanced lesson groupings, we will be running a multi-day junior tournament at PTC! Here’s how the show will run:
- Any interested players from any lesson grouping at PTC or other junior members, register your interest here via email for entry into the 2020 PTC Junior Invitational.
- Draws will be set for entry into Qualifying and Round 1. Matches to be scheduled beginning at 4pm on Wednesday, August 12th. Based on entries received and court time available, BYE’S may be granted to some players, and play divisions may be set by coaches rankings. Play will conclude with Day 2 – QF, Semi-Finals, and Finals (as required) beginning at 4pm on Thursday, August 13th. Play will be scheduled to conclude no later than 7pm on Thursday.
- Awards ceremony will follow during the next week of lessons to honour the tournament champions.
- All participants will receive a small prize for their participation, as well as light fruit and snacks provided by the PTC during the play sessions.
Both the 2020 Junior Invitational Tournament and the 2020 FUN DAY Challenge Play are free for all current PTC junior members to participate.
New Lesson Series
I’m happy to announce our next round of lessons will be scheduled for 6 weeks and is scheduled to begin on the week of August 17th. This puts the class on schedule concluded by week of September 21st, with no weather delays.
When school begins in the fall, we have been informed that we will not be given access to any courts during school hours, so all lesson groupings will be run in the evening and weekend slots we have been provided. The coaches will determine player interest from registrations and tryouts and will allocate students for best fit of lesson grouping. In order to accommodate this variability, a lesson product for pre-registration has been made available on the site for purchase if you want to secure your spot on court. Please Note that while the purchase of this product will hold your lesson spot, if the coaches determine we have sufficient players of advanced level capability to run a longer (more than 1 hour) or more involved program, there may be an additional cost required for the additional coaching time.https://theparisclub.ca/product/2020-lesson-series-2-pre-registration-product/
All time slots to be allocated by coaches. These hours are court priority for PTC and we have access to allocate 6 students / 1 coach. At 7 students for a single session, a second coach will be allocated an so on, as interest and availability persist. Our goals are to get as many students learning and hitting with their peers as a enhancement to private lesson and casual social play activities. Coaches have indicated seem availability for private lessons continuing through the summer season.
