Indoor Tennis Mid-Town Athletic Club Friday Jan 24 at 6:30pm, Overland Park

Another great opportunity! This is an outstanding indoor private club allowing MoKan Tennis to come and play some tennis for a special rate of $14 for 2 hours of indoor court time! A great opportunity that I would like to see continue.....and it just might with your help! Sign up! Show Up! Note: Be sure and wear non-marking sole shoes on the indoor court surface! Come on out and join us! Limited space! Note: Due to a lack of turnout at the last two events....the Overland Park Athletic Club has reduced space to 3 courts/12 players. I had 16 spots the last two times and only around 12 would show. Be sure and sign up and sign up on the waiting list for when others cancel.

    I don't want anyone to feel bad if they could not make it because of work, or illness, or if something came up. I had just checked the list the morning of the event and seen I had 21 available or waiting. The club called me in the afternoon and wanted a court back. This is a private club and they wanted it back for there members. I said I should have all the courts filled and so they allowed me to keep it. At the end of the day we only had 12 people. No issues with anyone that could not make it....I just had to apologize for not using the courts they went out of there way to provide our group. I am not sure if we will have another opportunity to have an event at that location and I am not sure I want that time investment and responsibility anymore. It is just the facts at the end of the day. Not upset with anyone, just not going to put myself in that position with an indoor club anymore.

    For those of you who RSVP'd with a yes but chose not to show up last night after Scott worked his magic to get us the great deal at MidTown, as well as the extra court (even after the club asked for it back), your disregard for the other players and the opportunity to play at MidTown is unbelievable!!!!

    The moral of this story is IF YOU SAY THAT YOU WILL BE THERE< THEN BE THERE>. An RSVP is a promise. KEEP IT.

    Thanks to all those that attended! It was a great time! We only ended up with 12 people and I had to apologize to the tennis director. I doubt I will try and do it again.

    It was a lot of fun. I met some most interesting people and the tennis was great!

    Super, but I need to change sox

    January 25, 2014

    The other day we had 12 attending and 9 waiting....so I asked for a 4th court so at least 16 could play. The club contacted me and asked if I could give a court back because they had members that needed it. I said no because with 16 we should have them full. I don't mean to sound like a jerk.....but if I can't get 16 people to show out of the 450 in our group....I think this will ruin my relationship with this club and I probably won't try to schedule anything anymore.

    Scott, are you covered for tonight? I possibly could get another in an emergency.

    I truly regret that I cannot make it tonite again due to my work. I know there is a waitlist so wanted to give heads up so someone can play.I would not get there til after 7;30 or so, so probably best to cancel . I really wish these were closer to the northland but I understand alot of people live out south.
    Have fun & good tennis!

  • Scott

    Come early if you can and I will help you connect with other Tennis Meetup MoKan Tennis players. After 6:30 I will already be playing on a court....so come and find me or just start asking where we are at and connect with some of our members and start playing and have some fun! Great night for indoor Tennis!

    Reminder to wear non-skid shoes on the tennis court surfaces. A reference link below for examples:

    Scott. I've been sick so I am sitting this one out ...one more spot open now. Have fun

    January 23, 2014

    • Scott

      I completely understand! Sorry to hear that and get well soon!

      January 24, 2014

  • Scott

    That would be excellent if those on the waitlist go ahead and show. Even if things are booked....we can rotate in....we have before and it is just as fun. And some other courts might open up or some regular club players invite us over. This is great that a private club lets us do this....big thanks to Midtown!

    Well I will swing by regardless since less people always seem to show.

    Super huge thanks to Dave Gary at Midtown for taking a chance on us and freeing up a fourth court as I said we had people on the waitlist. It is really, really important that I can have at least 16 people show up for this event since I asked them to do this for us. Please....if you are signed up and can't make it....take the time to follow up with the next person on the wait list and find a replacement for yourself! A lot of time and effort has been put into this meeting courtesy the wonderful staff at Midtown! More people please sign up on the waitlist in case someone cannot make it tomorrow night and you get bumped up to coming to the event! Thanks! Let's have a good time playing some tennis indoors on a cold winter's night!

    January 23, 2014

  • Scott

    They are suppose to met me know on Thursday whether or not a fourth court will be available. So everyone on the wait list keep checking the site! Also keep an eye on it late Friday in case anyone has to cancel and you get upgraded to attending! Thanks!

    January 22, 2014

  • Scott

    If you are on the waitlist....keep an eye on this post this week. Still trying to see if we can get an additional court approved. And you never know who might not be able to make it at the last minute....so you might get a notice that says you are in! Need a good turnout to keep this going!

    January 20, 2014

  • Scott

    Please remember to wear non-skid sole tennis shoes to this indoor tennis court event! Thanks!

    January 17, 2014

  • Scott

    I am trying to see if the club will let us have an additional court since we have so many on the waitlist. I will keep you posted!

    While I am coming, I don't know how my stamina will be after surgery. But Midtown is a great place to play.

    January 3, 2014

  • Clifton

    Seems like fewer people show up than sign up for each indoor session I've attended. As Scott mentioned, if you RSVP "yes" but find that you can't make it, please give advance notice so that others will have the opportunity to participate. Scott puts in a lot of effort to obtain these types of great deals for us.

    If you need a sub count me in. I love to play.

    January 2, 2014

  • Judy S.

    I am going to try very hard to make it. Looking forward to playing some tennis.

    Midtown also has food and beer. It's a good party atmosphere for mixing after tennis.
