Yes, friends and interested onlookers, it's that time again. Time to get the social media arm of Bethany Christian tennis fired back up. Time to drop some knowledge and prepare for a new season. But first, time for the schedule!
Here's a copy of the schedule I sent recently in an email to you... like I say, "Hope to see you (on the courts) soon!"
#1 - Team Camp
This is our biggest summer event. This happens the week of July 16-20. We are planning to go to Angola for that week, staying overnight at the church that I grew up going to. The cost of Team Camp is simply the money that it will take to cover your food. Typically this runs around $100, as we have to pay for between 7-9 meals.
During this week we play tennis twice a day, play other silly games together as a team, go swimming at my parent's pool, hang out at the church and play video games and many other fun activities (hide-and-go-seek, dodgeball, etc.) We also have time set aside daily for team devotional time, prayer, and unity building.
We will leave Bethany at 7:30 AM on July 16 and return at 2:00 on July 20. We hope all of you can come! Email me if you have questions.
#2 - Team Open Courts
Open courts this summer will be on Mondays from 4:00-6:00 PM. These times will function as team practices, sharpening skills and preparing for the season.
#3 - Daily Play
Because reptition and practice is important in tennis, I want to make the courts open for play each day of the week. Himal King, a senior on our team, is taking responsibility for these days and will be at the courts each weekday from 4:00-6:00 PM. This is simply a chance to play and enjoy competition, though I will often be there to provide some individual instruction as well. It is very informal, but an opportunity nonetheless!
I hope you are all planning on having a wonderful summer break, and I hope it includes some tennis too! I'm really looking forward to a great season next fall. Hope to see many of you soon!
Grace and Peace,
