Tennis Ratings: If you are not sure of your rating, please contact Jack Tarr (Tennis Professional). At the party, our seasoned tennis raters will give you a rating, and in future parties, you can be accurately placed in a playing group. This is a necessity: at higher skill levels, serves and ground-strokes may be hit hard, and if you aren't ready, that can be dangerous.
Cost: Low cost Tennis Parties are only possible because of the efforts of many SCWDC volunteers. If you enjoy our parties, please consider helping, too.
