Hello, Members! We weathered a March blizzard, the days are getting longer, and we've got a bunch of exciting tennis updates. Read below for details.
TENNIS SOCIAL AND FUNDRAISER
First, thank you to our Eastmoor adult tennis captains for getting their teams organized for the upcoming season. We know how much work is involved in being a captain and we appreciate your commitment to getting everyone signed up and fees paid on time.

Second, we would like to announce our very first 2021 Eastmoor tennis social and fundraiser event on Saturday, April 3rd (weather permitting) at 12 p.m., benefitting the American Heart Association! Please join us for fun and fundraising, food and drink, and of course lots of tennis. There will be two groups, each playing for two hours:

  • First group: less competitive, playing 12-2 p.m.
  • Second group: more competitive, playing 2-4 p.m.

Food and drink will be served after your two-hour session, where we will of course adhere to Denver social distancing rules. Our wonderful tennis pro Ken Tronco will be on site to organize players on courts for the different sessions to make sure everyone has a great time.

More information - including registration and payment details - is available on www.eastmoortennis.com under Adult Tennis.
