Hello Tennis Enthusiasts,
I hope your New Year is off to a good start! If you are new to the Hideaway or aren’t familiar with The Hideaway Tennis Program, I would like to welcome you. If you spend any time on the computer, the following link is one that will help keep you up to date on all things related to Hideaway tennis. The Tennis Member Handbook, Meeting Minutes, Team Home Match Schedules, and more can be found here: http://sdrv.ms/1bsZykF.
For those who prefer social tennis, the Tennis Association
Round Robin, at least the men’s edition
on Tuesday and Friday at 7:30am, is in full swing with the return of snow birds
including Bill Holzeuer, John Moore, Gordon MacDonald, Phil Coffey and others.
Speaking of the Association, the Annual Tennis Association Cookout will be held
on Monday, February 24th at 5:00 pm at the Oakmont Village pool patio.

Our Men’s USTA 65 and over 7.0 team will open their home stand on Friday, February 21st at 2pm. The team played its first match on January 24th, and will be looking to represent The Hideaway at Sectionals in Daytona.
Of course, where our teams finish in the standings isn’t the most important consideration. That our teams enjoy their time on court and represent themselves and The Hideaway with class are more important than results, and they all have certainly done both to date!

As you may already know, tennis parking has been relegated to the east end of the parking lot, across from the golf practice net. Security guards, team captains, and all involved with the tennis program will do what we can to ensure that visiting players are aware of the new parking arrangements.
We hope your New Year has gotten off to a good start, and we will be back with a report from the courts next month.
