Scheduled Events, Clinics, Mixers
From Memorial Day through Labor Day plus the Easter holiday, the Racquet Club offers a full schedule of mixers, clinics and drills. Check with the Pro Shop for special events, tournaments or exhibitions. Ages are listed for Junior Tennis programs. Mixers or clinics are designed for adults.
One-hour clinics for juniors and adults are $20-24 per person. The 30-minute Hot Shots lessons are $10 per child.
Pickle-ball is played on a badminton-sized court: 20’ x 44.’ The ball is served diagonally (starting with the right-hand service-square), and points can only be scored by the side that serves.
Players on each side must let the ball bounce once before volleys are allowed, and there is a seven-foot no-volley zone on each side of the net, to prevent “spiking.” The server continues to serve, alternating service courts, until he or she faults. The first side scoring eleven points and leading by at least two points wins. Pickle-ball can be played with singles or doubles.
