Tennis @ SPSTC
Tennis at Southpark Swim & Tennis Club
SPSTC currently has 2 tennis teams, who play for Queen City Tennis League (QCTL). One team plays Thursday mornings, and the other plays Saturday mornings. Our teams participate in the Spring and Fall seasons with the option to play Summer and Winter if there is enough interest. There are generally 7-8 matches per season and the team arranges practice times together during and between seasons to improve and build team comradery. We also work with a Pro who offers clinics throughout the year to hone our skills. Both teams have a Captain and a Co-Captain who are responsible for creating the lineups and more importantly, for planning the post-match lunches and other social gatherings. Our goal is to make our tennis a great, fun experience!
QCTL allows a club to have as many teams as they can generate so we are looking to build a new team. If you are a brand-new player or played as a kid and are thinking about picking tennis back up, we are starting a “beginner/intermediate” Open Play practice. We would like to encourage new or newly returning tennis players to attend. In addition to weekly practice, we will be offering clinics. We will schedule weekly evening sessions as well as daytime sessions possibly coordinating with swim team practice, based on interest. For now, please contact Suzie Hood immediately if you have any interest in being a part of a new start-up group. Bonnie Green and Caroline Graham are the liaisons for this new start-up group so look for them at swim meets and pick their brains for more information. We’d love to have you, the more the merrier! Please contact any one of us via text, call, or email:
