Building upon the success of last year’s fun social ladder, we are starting a TEAM ladder for our members! This will be competitive BUT levelled play. Teams will consist of 8 members:
It will run similarly to last year, where members must organize their ladder game sometime within the week and report their score to the administrator.
This is a Ladder for everyone. Players can register interest as a single or as a pair. Pairs will play each week against players of a similar skill level.
These 12-court events will raise money for Neighbour to Neighbour (N2N). See our Special Events tab for more details on each event.
August 28 & 29: We will have two competitive draws (3.5- and 3.5+) on Saturday and a fun blind draw on Sunday.
October: Our annual Halloween event which incorporates our President vs. Vice President tournament and a N2N fundraiser.
We are offering clinics throughout the summer. See below for some of our clinic dates!
The ball machine is usually available FOR FREE to any member, although it's not to be used during primetime hours.
It is currently unavailable due to COVID restrictions.
Clinics with our Club Pro, Matt Kawamoto! Only 8 spots per clinic. Members have priority until 1 week before the clinic, at which point spots open up to the public.
If you register with a partner, you will each get a discount of $5 (expect to drill with them for the majority of the clinic). Non-members will cost an additional $10.
