What a Racket

by Mel Weinzimer

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

request more information, contact Didi Lacroix at or simply fill

Remember, tennis is a “LOVE” game!
