SWOT Lite - THURSDAY Night... Let's Play on the Clay!! 5/1/14

Thursday Night SWOT has made an exciting change... We now play on the clay!!  We've worked out a special deal with JM Tennis and the Metrowest Golf & Tennis Club to allow our group to play on their clay courts at a substantially reduced rate! If you've never tried playing on clay, it's a must... much easier on your body than the hard courts and soooo much fun!!  So if you're looking for some midweek excitement, including sweating, laughing, cheering, running, making new friends, and even playing a little competitive tennis, followed by good eats and drinks.... you'll find it with SWOT Lite!

The New Twists:

- There will be only 12 available playing spots Thursday night.
- All efforts to have 6 men and 6 women each week for mixed doubles will be made!
- We will emphasize our desire to field only players who exhibit the SWOT spirit of camaraderie, competition AND compassion!
- Ahhh, and ALL players (excluding the Organizers) will be determined by the Sunday before each Meetup by the Organizers... SWOTTERS cannot RSVP "YES" for Thursday nights... EVERYONE wanting to play must put themselves on the Waiting List until granted a golden ticket!
- We'll be playing at the Metrowest Golf and Tennis Club in Orlando 
- Playing time: 7:15- 9:30pm
- Post-tennis, EVERYONE is invited to join us across the street at The Teak Grille for drinks, food and fun!!

** PLEASE only 3.5+ players (intermediate and above) ...see the NTRP skill chart (link on our ABOUT US Page) or call me if you're not sure!

For additional information about out venue, click on the link below:
MetroWest Golf & Tennis

We have the courts reserved from 7:15 - 9:30. (Please arrive 5-10 minutes early!)


$8.00 per player INCLUDES:
Court fee, new tennis balls and COLD bottled waters!

*Just bring cash on Thursday night or pay by Paypal...whichever way is easier for you!

**ALL SWOTTERS must first put themselves on the Waiting List to have the opportunity to receive ONE of the 12 "Golden Tickets" to play on Thurs. nights! I also highly suggest you send me an email prior to "Selection Sunday" confirming your interest in playing (bonus points for passion and enthusiasm!)

If we're already full: Quite often we get late cancellations, so be sure to ADD your name to the Waiting List if you want to play!

(You'll be notified if a spot opens up for u!)

    This was by far the most entertaining and competitive tennis groups I have played with. Very forgiving, and while being the new guy, has its own stress, I never felt that way, not once. I prefer his group over league, round robins etc. HUGE thanks to Ivan for setting this up, TY to John C for pointers and the help with my game, Ty to all who I played with.
    I must comment on the very first point as a Swotter, I expected the normal Round Robin play/rules/ping-pong like tennis. I do have cat like reflexes but, the first point I was aced with a perfectly placed flat serve down the T, I did not even move, I just watched. I then realized prison rules were in effect and theses guys are GOOD! Cant wait to play again. Matthew

    11 SWOTTERS, 1 Pro, 1 rookie, 4 sets, ZERO rain = another awesome Thursday night of clay court tennis! We had the pleasure of welcoming newbie, Matt, to our crew, who came with an awesome attitude, a passion to play, and a plethora of entertaining stories! We look forward to you joining us again soon! Chase, the resident Pro for the night, stayed and played a few exciting sets with our group, rounding out the roster to an even 12! Thank you! Kudos to all my partners and opponents for your outstanding efforts and sportsmanship!! Delicious food and highly enjoyable banter with great company followed at the Teak Grille! Good times, Gang!! :)

    Let’s put it this way…we went through gallons of Ivan’s delicious water tonight. But staying hydrated wasn’t the only challenge. There was Diane’s forehand – fuhgeddaboudit…and then Alberto serving up 2 aces in 1 game, oh yeah – he was grinning ear to ear! Got to team up with the I man tonight – always a treat. Chase joined in to make us 12 – what a guy! Kelly, we need to get back on the same side of the net…Jilly and I won our last set by forfeit (just kidding Diane). Newcomer Matt emerged from his Hummer like WWF’s Mark “The Undertaker” Calaway entering the wrestling ring. Just tweaking you Matt – welcome, and you will be a great addition to our SWOT group! The boys had Jilly B outnumbered at the Teak – lots of trash talk, good food and great fun!
