Volume VII/ Issue 8/ September 2020
This is Tennis in Rockingham County
September is a most favored month solely because it harbors the beginning of Fall! Autumn Solstice will occur on September 22 & cooler days are ahead. Perfect weather to get out on the courts for some tennis. This month’s newsletter highlights some wonderful opportunities for newbies, intermediate and experienced players not only to learn the game but to get in shape, CardioTennis!

As parents, kids and teachers are settling into a very challenging, albeit temporary, routine for school this month, the need for physical activity and getting outdoors is vital. These evening programs will provide the structure for physical activity plus some socializing in a safe environment. 

The RCTA Board of Directors send out a special thank you to this summer’s NJTL interns! Please look at the NJTL newsletter to see their smiling faces. Congrats to Hannah Wood on receiving a USTA Foundation College Scholarship. We’re proud of her and all the interns. It wasn’t the summer we planned for, but these interns did a great job!

Perhaps you find yourself with some free time one weekend this month, grab a can of balls and a couple rackets and head out to the courts for a little family fun. Go to our website to find a court near you! When you do...I’ll see you on the courts!
