Manager's Notes

Hello Everyone,
Spring has arrived as can be seen by the beauty of our community due to all the recent rains. Summer is right around the corner and we are gearing up for another very busy spring and summer. 
I would like to congratulate Top Seed Tennis Academy for putting on another great USTA Pro Tennis Championship. You make the City of Calabasas very proud by bringing great tennis to the City. Thank you to Steve McAvoy, Owner/President, Brady Hiete, Co-Director, Jeff Richards, Tournament Director and Jason Gaona, Head Pro for all your hard work in putting on this event every year. Also, thank you to Terri Secondino and Chelsee Howard for doing a great job of running the desk for the tournament all weekend and Marvin Martinez and his crew for all their hard work as well.
Our new digital security cameras are up and running in the facility. We have sustained some damage to our tennis courts that were re-surfaced not too long ago due to the heavy rains. Our maintenance staff is working hard to get them patched as quickly as possible. We have done some upgrades to our landscaping in and around the facility. The center was nominated for the “2019 Civic Beauty Award” by the West Valley Garden Club. They present the award to one business and two residences each year for their contribution toward making our community a more beautiful place to live. 
We have made a few changes to the fitness schedule as far as classes based on some suggestions by our patrons. I hope everyone is enjoying the classes and as always, if you have any new suggestions and/or new ideas please feel free to send them to me at dgonzales@cityofcalabasas.com
Pool weather is almost upon us and with swim lessons starting soon, we can expect the facility to become busier in the coming days. Raine and her staff are gearing up for the swimmers and ready for a great summer ahead of us. 
Have a great spring/summer and come on out to enjoy the beautiful weather!

Two Rio Olympic medalists have played our tournament!

Junior Level 5 & 7 Tournaments
Our first USTA sanctioned Junior Open is April 20 & 21, then a second one on June 27 & 28 and August 16 - 18. Our Spring Level 7 is May 18. What are level 7’s? These one day USTA sanctioned junior tournaments are designed for our youngest and/or less experienced juniors. From 6 to 18 years, boys and girls, these novice events give kids a chance to compete at a beginning or age group entry level.  The USTA requires children under 10 years old to begin their competitive development with the lightest low compression “Orange Ball” and smaller courts. From there, they move on to the next level, “Green Ball” play. Once they’ve turned 11, it’s on to the regulation “Yellow Ball” division. These Level 7’s are the first step in getting your child into the arena of competitive junior tennis. If your child is ready for tournament play and is under 10, let these home court Level 7's be their first competitive experience. Two Level 7’s are scheduled for the Spring/Summer, May 18, and June 29. Contact Tsetso Kostadinov for more details, tsetsousta@yahoo.com
