If you're looking to play some tennis in a quiet and peaceful atmosphere, be sure to head down to the river courts. They have been resurfaced and repainted to match the 4 courts by the fitness house.

If you can swing (pun totally intended) a free day at the club this Sunday, what better way to spend it than by playing in the RCTA Tennis & Golf Classic? Your day wil begin at 8:30 on the tennis courts with a little doubles round robin. You'll then head over to lunch at the main clubhouse, change into your golf attire and play a nine hole scramble. Finally you'll get to talk about all of your best shots with everyone over drinks and appetizers on the scoreboard patio! This is a fun event and a great way to spend a day at the club! you can rsvp at: RSVP@rivercreektennis.com

Hopefully you've been able to enjoy the last few days of sunshine and warmth! If you've been on the tennis courts and feel you need to give your racquet a "tune-up" then get your racquet restrung and your handle re-gripped here at the club. Most players have too thick of a string in their racquet. Thick strings are great for durability, but if you never break your strings then go for a thinner string to increase playability. Grips get worn out pretty quickly too. Besides being too compressed over time they also get slippery from perspiration. A good rule of thumb is to base how often you "tune-up" your raquet to how many times a week you play. So if your play 3 times a week, you should tune-up your racquet 3 times a year.
If you feel like you need a new racquet altogether, then come out and try one of our 14 new demo's from Head. Graphene technology is the latest offering from Head. This strong, lightweight material is added to the shaft or throat area so that weight can be redistributed to the head and handle to increase maneuverability and optimize dynamic balance. All of the racquets play great, but finding the right weight, head size, power level & grip size is crucial to getting the most out of your equipment!
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule either a racquet repair or racquet demo session this season.
