July 4th Social

July 4th Social

Come out to our July 4th Social from 10:00AM-12:00PM! The event is free to the membership, and all we ask if for everyone to bring a small dish to share.  The format will be similar to the Memorial Day social we hosted at the opening of the pool season:  we will have one hour of instruction/clinic followed by one hour of play.  The doubles team will vary based on the players who sign up and will be rotated during the hour from mens doubles, mixed doubles and ladies doubles.

Date: 07/04/2018 (Wednesday)

Time:  10:00AM - 12:00 noon
