FOR NON-CLUB MEMBERS...ALL VO RESIDENTS:

NEED TO FIND A PARTNER JUST FOR FUN:

  1. On the tennis courts near the entrance to the VO front gate, south of the laundry room room and patio are Courts 7 & 8. In the shed next to court 7 & 8 are loaner rackets and a book where groups of over four players can find a "round robin" play book. Each player selects a number for him/her self and checks the binder for the round number and who their partner's number is. Partners serve once each with backs to the sun, before changing end of court with other two players. You don't serve into the sun. If greater than four or eight players, those players sit out and socialize. Great way to meet new friends and form social circles. Round Round mixes everyone up to play with all the different players, no matter the skill level. This is social play.
  2. Drop In Open Tennis welcomes all park residents. Is held Every Tuesdays at 3:30 -5:00 pm and Thursdays at 3:oo-5:00pm at the tennis courts located in the Sportsplex. (NE corner of the park Entrance at 700 Blk of Navajo). Come to the tennis Veranda to meet up. (NE corner of the park). Mix and Mingle with BYOB and snack.
  3. "Fun Tennis Saturdays" on courts in the NE corner Sports Plex are also open to anyone living in VO. Check the "Calendar of Events" for dates of play. Sign up for "Fun Tennis" is generally available by Wednesday on the tennis kiosk bulletin board in the Sports-Plex,
