    Dear RSTC Members,

    As we approach the end of our 2023 season, we want to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers at the club and the board members, especially those vital members taking care of the treasury, social events, court cleaning, communications etc behind the scenes.

    The club survived and thrived post Covid pandemic. We had a good year in 2023 with 10 successful and fun tournaments and our active player membership increased 44% vs last year. We are in solid financial footing and even made a donation this month to Redwood City Park and Recreation for their support in allowing us to use their tennis courts for free.

    We would also like to take this opportunity to call for volunteers. We have board seats open for fresh blood and new ideas, and are also looking for people to help out on an ad hoc basis. If you are interested in participating in the management and operations of the club, please reach out to Amanda, Robin or Rick.

    Happy Holidays.

    The Fall continues to be perfect for tennis.  The November tournament was a combination of men's, women's and mixed doubles using all 3 courts. The winner for the women was Mudta Sood with 29 games and second place went to Monique Seibel with 26 games.  The men's winner was Sandipan Samaddar with 29 games won. Second place went to Eugene with 26 games.

    The tournament was immediately followed by a social at Blue Oaks Brewery in San Carlos on Cherry Lane.  About 20 people attended.  No host beer and Brazilian food was enjoyed by all, along with lots of laughs.

    Special thanks to Rick and Bob for the draw.  Sundar and Barb for arranging the social, Barb for refreshments, Tracie for photography, and Steve for court set up and blowing leaves off the courts.

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    The September tournament was a hit with 24 players spread across Preserve, Quay and Shorebird. A combination of mixed, men's and women's doubles was the format. Mary Bianco was the winner for the women and Steve George came out on top for the men. The evening social was a Margaritaville theme, a tribute to the late Jimmy Buffett. It was held at Steve and Robin home.  It was a fun evening filled with music, margaritas, good friends and awesome food! 
    A big thank you to Bob Evans and Rick Chou for the tournament draw, Sundar and Barb for social arrangements, Barb and Sandipan for tournament refreshments and Amanda for prizes.

    The RSTC board has approved a pilot program to add periodic tennis clinics to our program. We'll engage local professional coaches and our own ex D-1 player Bob Evans to instruct the players on various techniques and game plans.

    RSTC is sponsoring the 1st tennis clinic exclusively for RSTC members.  We are inviting associate tennis Pro Robert Garcia to run a tennis clinic.  This is a 2-hour tennis workout that features skill development, live ball drills and competitive play.  

    When: August 26 (Sat), 9 am to 11 am

    Fee:

    Tournament Member: $5

    General Member: $10

    The clinic is limited to 12 participants.

    It's July - time for a semi annual update for RSTC:

    • Since our March kickoff, we have welcomed 32 new participants with 25 joining as members. In the last 30 days, we welcomed 15 new participants with 9 joining as members.
    • We got fresh blood - new people range from 20s to 60s, split equally between men and women.
    • We got quality players - most new players are already at 3.0-3.5 or above.
    • The drop-ins on Wed and Sat @ Shorebird are big hits and are well subscribed.
    • Our July 15th tournament has the strongest player quality of the last 18 tournaments. Still some slots for signup before Tuesday deadline. 
    • The board in its next meeting will consider some new programs, such as skill clinics for members with professional coaches.
    • We are in a very sound financial footing and plan to provide more snacks, sandwiches in the future tournaments.

    Let's play tennis!

    On Saturday, March 11th we kicked of our 2023 season with a very successful Membership Mania.  Despite a few sprinkles, the weather decided to cooperate and we were able to meet 10 new players that were interested in finding out more about the club.  Everyone was apparently ready to play some tennis, both Shorebird and Dolphin were busy with great tennis and lots of laughter.  The season if off to a great start! Check your emails for the first tournament on April 15th.  Sign up early!  Everyone is rearing to go!
