The Trophy is Back Home!
A big shout out to our good friends at Arrowhead Country Club. On Friday, April 8th, we ventured out West to Arrowhead, where we were treated to some fantastic tennis and food! At the conclusion of the event, we held the club challenge and Gold Key was victorious, and we were able to bring home the “World Champion Private Tennis Club” trophy! The trophy is on display at the front desk for all to enjoy. We will be hosting our friends from Arrowhead in June, where they will try to reclaim the trophy!
Introducing the New Club Challenge Ladder
We are super excited to announce that we are introducing an all new Club Challenge Ladder this month. We are starting out with Men’s and Women’s Singles, but if there is enough interest, we will consider adding doubles and possibly mixed doubles. We will be using a new and exciting App to track and facilitate play called iPlayMe2. Best of all, there is no charge or fees associated with the ladder or using the App, and this is a members only ladder! All matches, tracking and updates will be handled through the app, and it is amazing and simple to use. We are hoping to launch the ladder around the middle of the month, so keep an eye out for updates. In the meantime, you can download the App in advance by going to www.iPlayMe2.com.
