Lawrence Park Tennis Club 
"Between the Lines: Junior Edition"
September 21, 2015


One of the fine traditions at Lawrence Park Tennis Club is our fall Junior tournament time.

This year we are organizing two fun junior tournament days on Saturday, September 26th from 8-11 and Saturday, October 3rd from 9-12.  The goal is to get our junior members out on the courts in a game format - they'll have a pile of fun while learning about points, scoring, and sportsmanship (we hope)!

In order to allow us to organize the activities to maximize your junior's tournament fun, registration is required. Please register by clicking on the Junior Tournament Registration Form button below, completing the form, and returning it no later than 6 pm on Thursday September 24th.  As usual, our Pro, Joe, will be running the event, so the kids are ensured a fun, competitive morning.

Parents, please wear your whites and court shoes, and bring a racquet, You never know when you will be asked to play with your kids on the courts (doubles anyone?). Oh, and did we mention there will be prizes on the line!?

Again, please make note that the tournament begins at 8 am this coming Saturday and 9 am on the 3rd of October.

See you on Saturday.

Tim Dalton, Junior Programs Director
Junior Tournament Registration Form
We were able to manage our junior instruction days this fall so that the courts are free on Thursdays from 4-6 pm. So new this fall, that time will be (unsupervised) junior play time. If your junior player would like to come out and hit with a pal or a parent, the courts will be available to our junior members. 

Some things to keep in mind:
  • all the usual court etiquette and code of conduct rules apply; 
  • you may need to know the combination to open the gate and access the keys to get on the courts (if you sign on to your members login page, it's at the bottom of the first page that comes up after you input your password); 
  • no supervision will be provided;
  • the Club and courts must be locked up if you're the last to leave - instructions are posted on the door into the Clubhouse;
  • any questions... call or email a Board member or our Junior Program Director, Tim Dalton. Our contact information can be found at the bottom of this newsletter.
If you're unsure whether the weather is going to co-operate and the courts are going to be playable... you can check our website / twitter feed. We tweet to @lptc_courts and the tweets show up at the bottom (left) of every page on our website.

As soon as a decision is made to NOT run a program, we'll try to get a tweet out. Of course, this may not work all the time as the rain can come out of nowhere at this time of year. But we'll do our best to keep you in the loop!
