Take the Throne Drop In Tennis Challenge
Looking for some challenging singles tennis? Then you will want to join us for the “Take the Throne” drop in held one day each month beginning Saturday, January 25th at 2pm. The price is $5 for members and $10.00 for non members. The format is short 4 game sets with add scoring and a deciding game if the score reaches 3-3, the server is determined by a racquet spin just like at the start of the match. The winner will move up a court and the loser will move down a court. Initial match ups will be seeded and set up at the discretion of the Director to help separate the higher levels from the lower levels. The last player who wins on the top court will take the Throne for the day. This event is open to men and women of all levels and ages who are looking to get in some singles play. If you have questions or want to sign up, please reach out to cody at firstname.lastname@example.org.
