Tennis is alive and well at Mashantum. Ladies round robin play on Tuesday & Thursday from 4:00-6:00pm had the courts hopping with activity. Men's doubles on Saturday morning at 8:30am had all four courts filled with over a dozen members and a few prospective members checking out the competition. Our Juniors put on a good show at their first home match Friday against Hyannisport ending the day with a highlight win by Jason Carrier over their #1 player.

Any Courts not occupied are swept & lined by staff at 3:30pm and between 6:00 & 6:30pm Monday through Friday.
As always, if you choose to sweep and line the courts after you play it is greatly appreciated as it only helps to keep the courts in tip top shape.
Another incredible weekend in Dennis, Massachusetts. I just wanted to take a moment to thank Bruce Bennett, Nancy and Tom Dingman, Sheila and Hank Schleinitz and Chris Wadsworth for their help Saturday taking up lines on one court and Kate Rogers for helping me winterizing the garden. It was done in a flash.
For those of you who would like to help in November, the job will be a little bigger (two courts) and the weather a little cooler. Coffee will be provided.
Save the weekend of November 13 and 14. We will work on the best day. Also if you have tennis balls that are past their prime, I could use them for a teacher in Chicopee who puts them on her kids' chairs to preserve the classroom floor.
Ladies, let's get together at the courts on July 24th for some fun tennis, great company and good food!
It's a pot luck - so please bring your favorite lunch dish.
Tennis will start at 10:30.
Lunch to follow.
