Thursday Meetup for Beginner Tennis Players

This Meetup is open to all people who are new to tennis and want to learn this wonderful sport. Anyone with a skill level of 0.0 (knows absolutely nothing about tennis) up through 3.0 (knows a little but wants to learn more) is welcome to attend this Meetup.  If you are an advanced tennis player (3.0 and up), please check out our Tuesday Advanced Meetup or our Friday Special Meetup.

The atmosphere that we will strive for is:

•  Relaxed and friendly

•  Fun and enjoyable

•  "No pressure" self paced learning

For more information on tennis player skill ratings, go to 'Pages' on this site and then select 'Tennis Player Ratings'.

Anyone wishing to assist with the instructional aspects of this Beginners Meetup, please contact Sieg Dugas through this site.

    We had a blast last night hitting with Tammy and Lavonne. We have noticed big improvements in both of their games in just a few weeks! We are going to miss the group when we move, but hope to see everyone when we come to visit.

      Please maintain your membership in this Meetup so we can stay in touch! Whenever you're in town, it would be great to see you both! I know the Organizer pretty well... so squeezing you in will be no trouble at all ;-)

    I absolutely love playing with this group! I look forward to it every week and miss it so much when I can't make it!

    It has been great having Sandy and Gary. They have been great. Very patient with us newbies. I have enjoyed getting to know them and learning from them.

    This Event Host's thoughts on the evening:

    Once again, I'd like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to Gary and Sandy for all the help they've given to this group. We will greatly miss you two after you've moved to Florida :-(

    I'd like to thank Mother Nature for blessing us with such lovely weather. It was a great evening for tennis!

    On court #9 was Gary, Sandy, Lavonne, and Tammy. I didn't get a chance to check on you but you must have played hard because you left early! Hopefully you all had a great time.

    On court #8 was Jana, Barbie, Kate, and Jeal. If these ladies don't stop having so much fun, we'll have to start charging admission ;-)

    On court #7, I had the great pleasure of playing with Sheena, Denise, and Terry. Denise was our MVP with 2 aces and winning every set she played in :-) however... we're about education... and because of that... we all left winners last night.

    Sieg's Weekly Tennis Quiz

    What is "Canadian Doubles"?
    A.) 1 player playing against 2 players.
    B.) A strange variation of tennis only played in Canada.
    C.) A doubles tournament where the grand prize is a case of Canada Dry Ginger Ale.

    The answer to last week's quiz is: 'B' (USTA - US Tennis Association)

    Thank you Vivian, Kate, Lavonne, Denise, and Terry, for taking last week's quiz!
