U.S. Open Party


On September 9 we held our 5th annual U.S. Open Party. There were over 60 people in attendance for our outdoor court grand opening, doubles mixer, new ball machine demo, exhibition match, and hamburger buffet. This year’s exhibition match featured Gary Fletcher and Ryan Schroffel vs Lane Richard and Marvin Hinds. It was an exciting match with Gary and Ryan coming out with the win 6-4 4-6 11-9. Thank you to everyone who took part along and to the Tennis Committee for organizing the event.

 
Davis Cup Practice Site & Coaches Conference


On September 10, 11, and 15, the Royal Glenora Club acted as a practice site for Team Canada and Team India as they prepared for last weekend’s Davis Cup tie. We also hosted a Coaches Conference, which had over 25 coaches from across the province in attendance. I would like to thank all Members for their patience as additional courts were booked off for these events.
 
A huge thank you goes out to Melissa Penney who took pictures of Team Canada and Team India’s practice sessions at the Royal Glenora Club. Please visit our Facebook page, Royal Glenora Club Tennis, to see Melissa’s pictures.
