April News

Well, I hope we will be able to avoid April showers for our next tournament.  March was all wet!  Membership Mania and the Tournament were both canceled due to rain.  We said “NUTS!” and went to the RSTC social to kick off our year with good wine and amiable company.


There were a plethora of nut appetizers to start with – mixed nuts, spiced nuts, apples and creamy peanut butter dip, and much more.  When we chose the theme, we did not, perhaps, remember that nuts are very, very filling.  By entrée time, we were already rather full.  But, showing the same determination with which we pursue tennis balls, we did find room for chicken, pork, and more, basted and roasted under various nut-based sauces.  Thank goodness there was chocolate for dessert!!!


Oh my.  I think the next social theme needs to be skinny food.  Many thanks to Annette Vernon and Paul Reinhardt for a terrific evening.  And many thanks to our army of volunteers who did the work for Membership Mania and the Tournament even though the events were canceled.  A special thank you to Shane Dickenson who organized his first tournament and agreed to do it again for April.


Speaking of April, it is going to be Team Tennis.  (If we get rained out in March, we try, try, again.)  Team Tennis is a great format for new members, and we like the start the year with it.  You get to spend the day on a team with 3-5 other players playing against other teams.  That gives you more opportunity to get to know some other members of the club.  May will be Women’s and Men’s Doubles (changing partners).  If you are not a member of the Redwood Shores Tennis Club and would like more information about the club or joining, please check out our website www.rstc.org or contact us by email at info.rstc@gmail.com.
