Weed and feed is an important aspect of every group. We need to delete those who really aren't playing and still continue to involve new people within our group.

NEW times in October

Playing at 6pm in the winter will not work, just like 3pm in the summer. So, we have put in for new times and hopefully will have FIVE afternoon times this winter. As soon as we know, I'll post it on the website and newsletter.

Heat in ON - Come Early

Some people view the heat as a positive and arrive early on the courts, like 7:30am

Come join the early-birders!

Sunscreens at Manatee

We are jumping the hoops and meeting with the "powers that be" concerning the lack of sunscreens on the courts of Manatee. With no shade there, it can be quite hot. Once we have some answers, we will let you know our progress. No new updates.

Second order has arrived!

Please contact Gene for your hats, if you purchased visor and/or hat.
