November/ December 2018
Finally, the weather is cooler and we can get some long hours on the tennis courts. 
This Fall we have five ladies SATA daytime teams and one Men’s USTA team competing in league play against other local clubs. This involves close to sixty club members and keeps the competitive spirts following throughout the program.

Congratulations goes to the Club Singles Champion, Colby White who defeated Paul Buckle in a closely played match. Colby has now won the Singles Club Championship four years in a row.

"Tennis Tip"

10 Things to learn from losing a Match:

  • Failure encourages improvement, so get to work.
  • It's an important experience for us to go through
  • Losing helps us to solve problems more effectively.  Tennis is really just problem solving while running .
  • It teaches us about the importance of hard work and perserverance
  • Failure encourages thinking (hopefully positive)
  • We learn from our mistakes, my new favorite saying is, "Not Win
  • or Lose but Win or Learn."  If you've learnt something, you haven't really lost.
  • Failure makes us more resilient.  It teaches us to fight so it won't be you next time.
  • It's character building.  You must win with humility and lose with honor.
  • Losing makes us build courage.  Nobody likes to lose but someone has to, make it them.
  • Fail is and acronym for:  "First Attempt in Learning."
