October 31, 2022, marks the beginning of a new season for the CVE Tennis Club,
which involves over 500 members here at Century Village.
“This season promises to be particularly exciting and fun-filled for our new and
returning members,” said Club President, Didi Lacroix. Besides their scheduled
times with teammates, members will indeed be able to take part in themed social
games through monthly jamborees as well as a Barbecue, a Tennis-Pro Exhibition,
a Health-Talk on tennis and golfer’s elbow, an End-of-Season party, many prizes
and raffles, and much more (Check out “Events” in our menu at
Since its Annual Meeting in March, the club’s leadership team includes President
Didi Lacroix and board members Mel Weinzimer, Alan Schwartz, Francois
Laliberte and Ralph Viapiano. There are two board vacancies and members
interested in joining the leadership team are encouraged to contact the club’s
president or any board member.
In preparation of our season launch on October 31, court assignments have been
posted online for all 24 teams, and a complete schedule will soon be posted at the
entrances of all 6 tennis court venues that contain our 16 tennis courts. In addition,
CenClub has confirmed that we’ll finally be getting new digital clocks, which
should allow for smoother transitions between morning teams.
For those interested, CenClub’s Tennis Pro, Ron Perry, will also continue to hold
morning clinics on weekdays at the Clubhouse courts, which are geared to all
levels of play. For information on clinics or to request private lessons with the Pro,
visit the club’s website or pick up a tennis clinic schedule at the Clubhouse Staff
To all CVE residents interested in playing tennis, CVE Tennis Club helps orient
new members of all levels and abilities, from total beginners to competitive
levels, including women's teams, men’s teams, and mixed teams. We offer plenty
of opportunities to socialize, make friends, and have fun. To become a member or
