'Old friends' Bill and Susan Carpenter, visiting from Hilton Head, stayed long enough to collect some BRC hardware as the runners up in our 1 day Super Seniors Tournament. Tournament Director Donna Dickie
and Rich Murray got to hold the big trophies as
having outlasted the rest of the field on a hot
and sunny august day. Gay Currie (center) is the trophy presenter. Barbara Drab saw to it that no one
went away hungry or thirsty by arranging for a
great luncheon spread.
Please join us Monday August 31 for a tennis party to celebrate the end of our season of Monday night drills. Rich, Dave and Steve will serve up an especially fun mix of games and drills starting at 5:00 PM. We'll have music to keep things festive, and the club will provide a selection of beverages for all tastes. Participants are encouraged to bring their favorite dish/snack/appetizer/dessert to share. Stephanie and Gay will be coordinating the food--please look for them in the clubhouse when you arrive.
All BRC members are invited. There will be no charge. Arrive when you can and stay as long as you like. Come on out and see how much fun this group has had all summer long!

'Pick-Up' Tennis Matches
Many of our members feel that one of the best things about our club is the ability to just show up without a prearranged match and have an excellent chance of finding a ‘pick up’ match. However, that has not been as easy as it was in the past. To encourage ‘pick up’ tennis, the club has designated
Thursdays' 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. as ‘Pick Up’ Tennis night.
This has no structure. No Sign up is required; just show up!
We will have one of our Board Members there to direct whoever shows up to lead this event.
