beautiful weather helped bring out a great crowd for Spring Clean-Up Day and make short work of getting our club in shape for the outdoor season. The club thanks
all those who participated. Special thanks to Barbara Drab for the breakfast goodies. The club is
now spruced up and ready for another great BRC season!
This league is geared for 3.0 - 3.5 players. Starts Tuesday, May 10 at 7pm. Terri Durkin is the leader.

Players will be assigned a number that will stay constant
throughout the 7 weeks of play. Each week you will switch partners and
opponents. Play best out of 3 sets. Contact Terri with scores at the end of each week. At the end of 7 weeks we will crown the winner! Matches can be played at a time that is convenient for all 4 players if weather is an issue during regularly scheduled matches.
NOTE: The 7.0 Wednesday evening League led by Phil Heft is now filled.
Evening Drill Sessions: Mondays and Wednesdays
BRC will expand last year's popular Monday night drills to include sessions both Monday and Wednesday evenings. The sessions will begin
Monday, May 2, and run from 5:15 to 6:30 at a cost of $12 per session. If rain threatens to cancel a session, please check the BRC website home page for up-to-date notices.
The Monday night session will be geared towards competitive players looking to hit lots of balls, get a good physical work-out, and sharpen their ball-striking and decision-making skills.
The Wednesday evening session is meant to encourage non-competitive, less experienced, or less confident players to come out in a supportive environment and enjoy the camaraderie of like-minded members while doing fun drills and learning new skills.
Steve Smith will be running these clinics in May with the capable assistance of Dave Irwin. Director of Tennis Rich Murray will resume oversight of these sessions upon his return to Pennsylvania in late May. No pre-registration is need for either night--just show up and have fun.
