Courtesy on the Courts - Please exit the court every time a game is finished when there are other members playing.  Take a break and get a drink, another group will finish soon and then play in a different group.  Play with people that you do not know, meet some of our new members - they are shy, so be aggressive and invite them to join you, that way you will make a new friend.  Please do not invite guests or non members to play with you during club play times, our courts are crowded and this is a courtesy to your fellow members.

Clinics - Thanks to Trainer Ray Thompson and his Volunteer Teachers who sponsored a clinic for Newbies from Jan. 12 - Feb. 20.  Our club membership increased by approximately 50 of these attendees.  The clinic is over but the group is still coming to play together on  Thurs. and Sat. at 10:30 am.  They are improving and as the weather gets hotter they will be coming earlier and mingling with the Intermediate players.  Thanks to everyone who has helped this group enjoy the game, please continue to play with them and make them feel welcome.

USAPA Ladders - A new Ladder has been formed to accommodate approximately 20 of these new members.  The Team Captain is Jdee Birkland jbsk@xmission.com and her assistant is Lois Kumerow.  They meet on  Tues. mornings at 10:30-12:00, using 4-5 courts.  WBVPC has 4 Ladders with 106 participants last week and approximately 60 players who had made other plans but will be returning in a week or two.  Any member may join in the easy group competition provided by these ladders.
