May was an excellent month for Tennis Events at PTC. We had our first TGIF, which was fun for all who attended. Hope to see more of you out for the next one.
On Friday, May 11th
, we got Mother’s Day weekend off on the right foot by holding the first Spring Women’s Doubles Tournament. From all accounts, this was a great day. Some comments included, “I had the BEST time,” “…so much fun,” “…so well run,” and my favorite "…had my best day at PTC yet” (from a somewhat new member). Many thanks to Gene Trainor, Angela Kwan and Lona for pulling this event together.
Pizza and Pro’s took place on Saturday, May 19th
– Pablo’s first one. It was a very well attended event. The adult clinic overflowed with at least 30 members, and the kids clinic was a success as well. The Exhibition on Court 1 featured our pro Pablo Alvarado, PTC teaching pro Stephanie Luk, guest pro Mariesue Jacutin, and reigning PTC Singles Champion Brian Heimbecker. Both Stephanie and Mariesue are former WTA players. We witnessed some excellent tennis!
MARK YOUR CALENDARS: Looking forward to June, we have one of the Club’s premier events coming up – the van Dillen Men’s Doubles Championship. Come on down over the weekend of June 9th
to watch the action on three Brackets: Open, 4.0 and 3.5. You won’t want to miss the Open Finals and the Winners Presentations on Sunday – during the early afternoon.
See you at the Club in June.

"We witnessed amazing tennis, great fun, and beautiful weather! Clearly, it was 'your time' and you shined," from Tennis Committee Coordinator, Gene Trainor to all our participants in the Women's Tournament held in May.

Congratulations goes out to our big doubles winners: Amy Grenier/Jane Pearcy, Karina Dykes/Jen Salma, Adrienne Schubner/Elizabeth Pratt. Special thanks goes to Gene for setting up the brackets and stepping into the Tennis Committee role like a champ. Well done, sir. Also, a huge thanks goes to Daisy Kwan, Sonya Moss, Steve Brooks, Linda Podowsky, Lona Means, Loel and Tony for their help setting up and cleaning up after the event. Great team. Special mention also goes to Anthony Paz and Sheila Druskin for their donation of raffle prizes - thank you.
Our "Pizza and Pro's" event brought out our youngest members with our senior members to everyone in between. We enjoyed an afternoon with Pablo and his crew of Pros, enlightening us all with their expertise. It was an amazing day with great energy and fun prizes. Thank you Pablo Alvarado. We appreciate all you do for us here at PTC.
