On September 11, the Redwood Shores Tennis Club will be hosting a junior clinic for kids of all ages with the help of the Silicon Valley Tennis Academy.  If you have kids who are learning to play tennis, please consider signing up.  We’d love to have lots of neighborhood kids take advantage of this opportunity to get a lesson and meet some friends.  Find more information about the event or register at

RSTC completed our signature Team Tennis with a Twist event in June and we are just about to hold our July tournament, a Mixed Scramble format.  By the time you read this article, we will be preparing for our August BBQ tournament.  We hold a fun tournament every month with various formats.  There’s Men’s and Women’s Doubles, Mixed Doubles, Changing Partners, and Fixed Partner formats.  If you want to play doubles tennis without worrying about finding courts, partners, or opponents, our monthly tournaments make it easy!

Our socials are just as diverse and fun.  The June theme was Skewer This! and everything came on a stick.  Appetizers, entrees, and desserts.  Strawberry Shortcake on a stick was perhaps the most unusual offering, and quite tasty.  We would even have asked that the salads be on a stick (somehow) but there was a last minute change of who was bringing what.

This year, we are enjoying an active membership with nearly everyone coming to the tournaments and/or socials.  Even though the tournaments are regularly filled to capacity, we have usually been able to accommodate those on the waitlist.  In June, several members offered to play a half day in order to create an extra space for a new member (whom none had met) to get to play!  This generosity of spirit is typical of the members of our club.  It’s why I love being a part of RSTC.
