WACTA Social Tennis and Clinics Series (STCS) Starts on May 11, 2013

05/11/2013 7:00 pm
05/11/2013 11:59 pm


We are excited to announce the 2013 Social Tennis and Clinics series. The first event of this series is on Saturday, May 11 at Four Seasons Tennis Club. This event is open to both WACTA members and non-members. There are two components in the event: Social Tennis and Tennis Clinics.

Social Tennis

WACTA Social Tennis is designed to promote socialization among tennis fans in the area. We are putting forth a format for the series so that players of all levels will experience an enjoyable evening of tennis.

The social tennis night will provide a great platform for all tennis fans to meet fellow tennis players. During the event, you will have a chance to not only play with your friends, but also get to know other players of different levels. You may be able to get to make more tennis buddies along the way.

The event will also help to hone your match skills in a casual setting. It will be especially beneficial for the players who have not had chance to play matches regularly. Many of you may also be able to pick up a tip here and there from more advanced players and WACTA coaches.

We understand that many people have a busy schedule on the weekend. Because of this, we created two sessions for you to choose from:
(1) Early Bird Session, from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM
(2) Night Owl Session, from 9:30 PM to midnight

The cost for each session is $15 per player for WACTA members or $20 for non-members. (If you are interested in becoming WACTA member, please contact secretary@wacta.org). There is an upper limit of 32 players for each session. Please register as early as you can to reserve your spot.

Iris Fan is the director for this social tennis event. Please email her at socialtennis@wacta.org if you have any questions. If you are curious about the format we will be using for this social event, you can find out here.

Tennis Clinics

We will also offer tennis clinics for kids and adults during this event. This series of clinics are designed for beginners to intermediate players. This program will focus on fundamentals of tennis stroke production and footwork. Many young children enjoyed WACTA’s tennis clinics last summer. This year, we have expanded our clinics to meet the needs of both kids and adults. And we have moved it indoor to avoid hot weather or rain interruptions.
Three clinic sessions will be provided:
(1) 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM: 10 and Under Clinics for kids of ages 10 or younger
(2) 8:45 PM – 10:15 PM: Young Adults (10 and older) Clinics
(3) 8:45 PM – 10:15 PM: Adults Clinics

All clinics are taught by experienced WACTA coaches. The cost is $10 per session for WACTA members or $15 for non-member. To ensure the quality of the clinics, seats are limited for each session. If you take the first clinic on May 11, you will have the priority to take subsequent clinics in June and July. WACTA clinics are directed by James Liu. To register for the WACTA clinics or for additional information, please email James at clinics@wacta.org. Please include the following information in your registration email:
• Name
• Gender
• Age
• Contact Phone Number
• If you are a WACTA member
• Self-assessed playing level (or number of months/years playing tennis).

Email James Liu at clinics@wacta.org to register for WACTA tennis clinics.
