Dear Tennis Loving Members of HVIT,
A big thank you to everyone who attended the year end party! A special thanks to everyone who brought food and drink.
We are now closed for the winter season. We have loved having everyone
at the club for our second season. We would just like to pass along
some news regarding summer play at the club as well as our plans for
Just like last summer, the club will often be open on rainy days. Just
contact us at either of the email addresses below if you would like to
book a court on a rainy day. We will do our best to accommodate
everyone. We will no longer be sending out “rainy day” emails.
On many Saturday and Sunday mornings between now and the beginning of
the winter season, you will find the intrepid owners of HVIT playing
(and just hanging out!) from 8am-12pm. If there are members who would
like to play on the other court during that time frame (whether it is
raining or not), please contact us.
We are also considering staying open one day a week over the summer
months – regardless of the weather. If there are members out there who
would prefer to play indoors year round just drop us a note and tell
us what day(s) might work for you. If we get enough responses for a
particular day we will probably try out this idea for one year and see
how it works.
The summer court rate for ALL of the above scenarios (rainy days,
weekend mornings, etc) is $36 per hour regardless of the day or time.
All normal club guest fees will apply.
We also wanted to mention a couple of issues we have had at the club:
–we would like all children who are in the clubhouse to be supervised
at all times. We have had days where ten or twelve young children were
left unattended – or with only one parent here – for up to 30 minutes
prior to their lesson. This is not an acceptable practice.
–we would like members who are going to court #2 (the far court) to
make sure to follow basic tennis etiquette when crossing court #1. If
possible, make sure all members of the group are together and ready to
cross. Wait until the point is over on court #1, and then open the
door and cross as quickly as possible directly across the court. If
players are practicing or taking a lesson, you can simply open the
door and go behind the curtain at any time. If you are at all
uncertain when to cross, just ask whoever is working at the desk to
We will be making several improvements to the club and courts over the
summer. Stay tuned for more news!
