St George’s is happy to host the St. George’s Junior Tournament this weekend from Friday July 5 to Sunday July 7! Tournament play starts at 5:00 pm today, and continues throughout the weekend. You can see the schedule here: http://novascotia.tenniscanada.com/2019-st-georges-junior/. Courts may become available for members’s use at the end of each day - please call to check with the host. We encourage club members to come out and see some great junior tennis!
The lines are down, the nets are up, and our courts are open for play! We are immensely grateful for the efforts of our dedicated staff and volunteers in making this possible. Please call the club or check our Facebook page for updates regarding court availability and programming. We ask that all members submit their membership forms and payment before playing.
We also wish to remind members to join us for our annual spring meeting tomorrow at 7 pm in the clubhouse. We will be making a special presentation to our member Dave Piers. See you there!
Our volunteers and staff have been working through challenging weather, and we are looking to put down lines and open the courts in the coming days.
We are also happy to welcome our new head coach Stefan Hall to the club. Stefan has Club Pro 1 certification through Tennis Canada and has coached previously at the Atlantic Tennis Centre. We look forward to a great summer with Stefan!
Finally, we encourage all members to join us for our annual spring meeting on Thursday May 30th at 7 pm in the clubhouse. See you there!
