INSIDE SCHEDULE

OUTSIDE SCHEDULE

Click above to view the inside and outside schedules.  Look it over and make sure that I have not made any mistakes.  I would suggest printing it out and bringing it with you tomorrow.  Please be at Woods a half hour before you are scheduled to play, coach or score keep for the first time.  After that, listen for your name to be called.  Remember we may be ahead of schedule or behind.  Be ready to play!

 

PLEASE, if you are free, please attend any of the awards ceremonies, even if your athlete is not involved.  This is a big deal to them and we want them to feel the love!

 

Tammy will be the inside coach and Nancy will be the coach outside.  Clara will be assisting me as the Green Division Director.  If you need something or have a question just find us. Tammy, Nancy and Clara will have on the teal Tennis Buddies shirt so we will be easy to spot!
