Club News and Updates
PENTWATER YACHT CLUB MONDAY NIGHT DINNER:
Volunteers from the Pentwater Tennis and Pickleball Club will be preparing a special Monday Night Dinner at the Pentwater Yacht Club on June 28 at 6:00 PM (PYC membership is required). The event will coincide with opening day of the 2021 Wimbledon All England Tennis Championships, and we’ll celebrate with a menu that will include: Pimm’s Cup Cocktail, Welsh Rarebit Appetizer, Strawberry & Onion Salad, Beef Wellington, British Potatoes & Peas, and Strawberries & Cream. PYC members can purchase tickets for $20 by contacting the Club at: 231-869-8921. Seating will be limited to 100 people, so you might want to get your tickets soon.
The pandemic has hindered our contractors from receiving certain fence posts for our project, which has delayed completion of court resurfacing. The posts are to be delivered the week of May 24th, and work can then start in earnest. Your board is holding its “collective breath” as we hope and pray for this work to be completed within the next 2-3 weeks.
TEMPORARY TENNIS OPEN PLAY PROGRAMS:
Due to delays in court improvements, for the time being we only have two tennis courts available, and with that some temporary changes in open play programs.
- Level one (slower paced tennis, both Men and Women) will start Monday, May 24th, and will continue from 9:00 to 11:00 AM on Monday/ Wednesday/ Friday until further notice. There will probably be a mixed doubles activity until more courts become available.
- Level two (faster pace tennis, both Men and Women), will start Tuesday, May 25th and will play on Tuesday/ Thursday/ Saturday. Until further notice, Men will play from 8:30 – 10:30 AM, and Women will play from 10:30 – 12:30 PM.
NON-PROGRAM TENNIS PLAY:
The two courts we currently have available can be utilized by the general membership to play on a first come, first serve basis after the program play is finished for any given day. It is suggested that use of the courts be limited to 1 hour if others are also waiting to use the courts.
While we wait for court resurfacing, we’ll be utilizing temporary pickleball courts, and begin play using the paddle boxes to mix up partners and opponents. Starting Tuesday, May 25, from 9:00 to 11:00 AM, and running every Tuesday and Thursday, we’ll have Open Play Pickleball. No need to sign up using SignUpGenius, just show up and join in the fun! Of course, when the contractors show up, we’ll suspend Open Play until the courts are done. At this time, these two courts are available everyday of the week, if you want to gather a group to play. Please note that our PTPC Individual Pickleball Tournament scheduled for Monday, June 14, may need to be postponed, if the new six pickleball courts are not ready.
WOMEN’S “WELCOME BACK” ROUND ROBIN:
This tennis & pickleball event is scheduled for Friday, June 11 from 9:00 to 11:00 AM (an alternative date might be needed if it’s determined the courts aren’t going to be ready). Bring a favorite breakfast dish or snack to share! Tables will be set up providing coffee and juice. Point of Contact: Linda Baumann.
CLUB TENNIS & PICKLEBALL SOCIALS:
The Club’s initial “Social” event of the season (open to non-members) was scheduled on May 30th, but it has been cancelled due to delays in court improvements. Please join us for the next “Social” scheduled for June 30th at 7:00 PM.
Our club has purchased an Automatic External Defibrillator. It will be placed in the kitchen this Monday, and is available if any emergency arises on our courts. The AED has “talking instructions” on how to use it. We hope in the near future to have a demonstration by our EMT folks on how to use the machine.
Payments are due by June 1st. Members in arrears will be reviewed by the club’s Board of Directors at its June 8th meeting.
