**LADIES TEAM TENNIS
This is for the players who are ready and willing to put their skills (and luck!) onto the field of competition, and get involved in a more structured team atmosphere. Newfield comprises two teams that compete in the FCWTL, (A, B & C) and each team meets for weekly 1.5 hour practices with matches at the end of the week, including a .5 hour supervised warm-up prior to all home matches.
Top eight players available each week will play: Please note match play is not guaranteed. A club fee exists for anyone who participates in a FCWTL match.
(Please feel free to discuss your expectations and goals with Keith.) At every home match’s conclusion, a pro will be available to offer feedback and comments regarding the match.
Please contact Keith if interested, but unable, to be present during these days and times. All interested in securing a spot on the team must sign-up before the first practice. Evaluations are on May 12th – pleased check with Keith for other arrangements if unable to attend.
