The Redwood Shores Tennis Club 2009 Season is starting!

I hope you are energized and ready for a new tennis season.  I am very excited to let you know of the many things your Board of Directors has been busy with.

 

First of all, MEMBERSHIP MANIA.  It will be great fun to see you, enjoy some coffee and breakfast together, and hit some balls.  Fingers and toes crossed for sunny weather!  Registration is not required but is appreciated in order to get a head count. Register for this free event on-line.

 

Fill out your MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION.  Once we receive your payment, we’ll start sending you the NEW MEMBER PACKET (WELCOME AND INTRODUCTION and EVENT CALENDAR is available now.  PRINTABLE MEMBER DIRECTORY will be coming in April.)

 

NOTE the new section on VOLUNTEERING.  FILL IT OUT.  Be as generous as you can in offering to help.  We will spread out the work amongst all people that volunteer.  If you play more than twice a year, if you come to the socials, if you go to Pajaro -- you need to volunteer!

 

NEW this year – SOCIAL MEMBERSHIPS are available for your non-playing spouse/partner (or your non-playing self if you are injured.)  We are asking that everyone who attends more than one or two of our socials to buy at least a Social Membership.  Club dues pays for the drinks, wine, cups, plates, napkins, etc. for all socials.

 

The MARCH TOURNAMENT will be March 21 and the format is Team Tennis.  We NEED VOLUNTEERS for all positions for this tournament as the Board is busy preparing for Membership Mania.  You can register and volunteer for this event on-line.

 

I’m very pleased to announce the NEW REDWOOD SHORES TENNIS CLUB WEBSITE.  If you any questions or problems, just let me know.  Here’s a brief list of what is available and what is planned:

 

·       ON-LINE EVENT REGISTRATION: Easily view and register for all of our upcoming events.  You can even pay on-line through Google Checkout.  All tournaments are priced at an extra 50 cent to reflect on-line payment expenses.  You can save the 50 cents if you want to send a check through the mail (but think about how much it costs for an envelope, 42 cents in postage, and time.)  Or buy the $75 Tournament Membership and just forget about tournament fees.

 

·       ON-LINE MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION: Fill out and submit the membership application on-line.  You can pay on-line or send a check to save the on-line payment expense ($1 for the General Membership and $2 for the Tournament Membership.)  Once we receive your payment, your account will be activated and you will be able to sign in to access the Members-Only pages.

 

·       MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY: See contact information, tennis ranking, and preferred times of play for Club members so you can contact them to set up a match.  This directory is visible only to members and you can update access privileges to decide how much of your information you want to share

 

·       PHOTO GALLERY: Only members can see photos taken at our events.

 

·       NEWS (BLOG): Keep up-to-date on what's happening with the Club.

 

·       COMING SOON - FORUMS: We’ll add Forums with great topics such as Feedback, Tennis Tips, How to Host a Social, and Need A Player, all for Members only.  You can subscribe to specific topics so you get email notifications when someone is searching for a 3rd or 4th player for Doubles.

 

We are going to have a great summer!
