    VTA MEMBER APPRECIATION AND YEAR END WIND-UP PARTY

Put Saturday, October 1st from 9:00 am. to noon on your Calendar now and plan on attending.

  • Your Board of Directors invites you to participate in a modified “first come, first to play” round of tennis, where everyone gets to play with a varied assortment of other member players (maybe some you have never even met this year).
  • Then, of course, we invite you and your guest to partake in an upgraded hamburger and salad (maybe other things too) lunch.
  • No charge to VTA members, just let us know you are planning on attending. Small $5.00 charge for guest’s lunch.
  • Email vtavernon@gmail.com to let us know whether you are one or two attending and staying for lunch.
  • If any of our musical VTA members would like to bring their guitar, we would love to eat accompanied by beautiful music – don’t be shy.
  • FYI: It certainly would have been more appropriate to have a VTA wind-up in September but, because of other widely attended tournaments in the Valley, we decided to not create any conflicts with any other tennis competitive events.

TENNIS:  As people arrive on Oct, 1st, your names will be added to a chart until all 4 courts are filled.  Anyone who comes after that will also put their name on a court until filled for the next round.  A Whistle will sound after 30-35 min.  All players will exit the courts and the next groups will go on for the same length of time. No scores will be kept officially, so the whole idea is to play tennis with fellow members, make lasting partners maybe?, and just socialize and have FUN.  SEE YOU SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1ST.
