Calling all Tennis Wannabes!

Have you ever wanted to try tennis but didn’t know how to get started?

Our pro, Brian Hattaway, is offering a series of four 1-hour sessions just for Lawndale beginners! Bring a racket if you have one, or borrow one from us. These lessons are free so there’s no excuse not to try.

No registration required; just show up at the clay courts. Saturdays May 26th, June 2nd, June 16th, and June 23rd at 11:30 am. Questions? E-mail Brian at [email protected]

2018 Lawndale Battle de Terre Battue

Come join us on June 9th at 9 am for a French-inspired tennis social, the inaugural Lawndale Battle de Terre Battue! The format will be a mixed doubles “Pro Set” with the first team to 8 games by a margin of 2 to win. The draw will be quarters, semis and finals. A total of 14 players can join in the fun with one team receiving a first round bye. We will play tennis while feasting on a French picnic and champagne. Please RSVP to Brian if you would like to play. No partner needed (Brian will pair you up with one!) but if you have a partner, please include that in your RSVP (no team to exceed a combined 7.5 rating).

We will limit this to Lawndale members until June 5th – after that date if we are short players we will open it up to non-Lawndale players.

When: June 9th at 9 am

Where: Lawndale Swim and Tennis

Format: Mixed Doubles

RSVP: Brian at [email protected] by June 5th (*limited to 14 players so sign up soon!)

Cost: $10 (includes food and drink)

*If this event fills up, we will ask for alternate players to come and participate if needed but otherwise cheer and dine if not. A free stringing will be given to the alternates if they attend but do not get to play!
