Dear HVIT Member:
As many of you know, we have sold Hudson Valley Indoor Tennis. We built the club so there would be at least one more option for winter tennis in our area since there was clearly a lack of indoor tennis courts. Our agreement with Shawn Holzmann (and any future owner) makes it extremely likely that the facility will remain a tennis club and not be converted into another use. This was a critical part of the deal.
When most of you became members of the club you were strangers to us, but many of you have since become friends. We will not miss the daily grind of running the club (particularly since COVID!), but we will certainly miss seeing all of you on a regular basis. It is what we will miss the most. We want to thank each of you from the bottom of our hearts.
We want to send out a special thank you to all of our staff, past and present. The last three years in particular have been difficult and Lori (who has been with us since the day we opened), Sharon and Bill have handled COVID and everything else thrown at them extraordinarily well. We also want to give a big thank you to Tim Delaney who – behind the scenes – has provided expert help on numerous issues over the years.
In terms of the club moving forward, we understand it will be renamed Break Point Tennis (breakpointny.com). We know many of you will have questions about court time as well as other things. You can reach Shawn Holzmann by email at email@example.com.
A final note: we aren’t going anywhere! We will continue to play tennis at the club and will likely see many of you on a regular basis. As a parting gift to all of our members, we are taking responsibility and paying for the resurfacing of the courts one final time later this year. Have a terrific summer. Serve ‘em up!!
James and Matt
