Many of us were shocked to learn of the death of Candy Gleim,
who died on May 23 at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital where she worked as a nurse. She had been battling pancreatic cancer. Candy was a long term member of BRC. She was an excellent tennis player who was very active with the ladies Cup team as a captain
and player and also served as Club Representative. She will be remembered as being cheerful and energetic
by her many friends at BRC. Our deepest sympathy to her husband George, himself a former BRC member known to many of us.

Evening Drill Sessions: Mondays and Wednesdays
Notice: There will be no drills on Monday evening, May 30 (Memorial Day)

include sessions both Monday and Wednesday evenings. The sessions will
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.
