Recap: Membership Mania and March Team Tennis Tournament

Well, the Redwood Shores Tennis Club’s Membership Mania on March 15 got rained out and things didn’t look too promising for our rain date reschedule of March 21.  All week, the weather forecast promised showers.  Thursday and Friday were brilliantly sunny and yet the forecast continued to be rain.  Nevertheless we made all of our preparations and Saturday dawned bright and dry!  We had a delicious buffet of croissants with home-made strawberry jelly, muffins, yogurt, granola, fruit, coffee, and orange juice available.  Drop-ins were welcomed to enjoy some breakfast and play a set with us.


Simultaneously, we were running our March Team Tennis Tournament with 16 hardy souls on 4 teams: the Spring Breaks, Showers, Fevers, and Flowers.  Despite early genteel protestations that “this is the first tennis we’ve played all winter”, there was some steel on the courts – lessons had clearly been taken during the winter!  In the end, the Showers took home the prizes.  Captain Kathy Miles, Michael Garb, Monique Seibel, and Shane Dickinson earned themselves each a box of chocolate truffles.  The rest of us were satisfied with good food (breakfast) and good tennis and seeing our friends again.


Now Membership Mania may be over, but we are always looking for new members so if you are at all interested in playing tennis, look us up!  Even if you don’t have time to play often, you’ll find that membership in RSTC is well worth your while.  First of all, the annual dues and per tournament fees are quite low.  Secondly, if you don’t play often, you probably don’t have regular opportunities to play.  RSTC provides partners and opponents twice a month – at our tournaments and open plays on reserved courts.  You don’t have to call around looking for available players or drive around looking for an available court.
