The CVE Tennis Club held its Holiday Jamboree, its first social event of the season, on
Sunday, Dec. 11 th at the Richmond and Clubhouse tennis courts. Tennis Jamborees are
monthly events, held during the tennis season, offering our members an opportunity to
play tennis and enjoy each other’s company in a festive environment.
Thanks to Laura Dorris and her team of volunteers for a hearty and healthy breakfast of fresh fruit, yogurt, and breakfast pastries. The event featured mens, womens and mixed doubles, and ended with a raffle.
This season, the CVE Tennis Club, led by President Didi Lacroix, will feature monthly Jamborees, a Tennis Pro Exhibition, Health Talks provided by FirstAtlantic Health Care, and an End of Season Gourmet Party and Dance. The next social event, the Welcome Back Barbecue, is being held on January 11th at the Bald Eagle Shelter, Quiet Water Park and will feature music, dancing and of course a great offering of barbecue dishes.
The club is also introducing a new program where members can team up with a doubles partner and play competitive tennis. Mens, womens and mixed doubles teams will compete against each other with the teams at the top of the ladder participating in a finals tournament with prizes and trophies awarded to the winners. For those members interested in playing singles, the club will be facilitating and assisting members in finding singles partners.
Daily tennis clinics, led by CVE’s Tennis Pro, Ron Perry, will continue to be held weekday mornings at the clubhouse courts. The clinics are geared to all levels of play.
