Southern Oaks ‘Warming Up’ Tennis Ticker 5-2-18

Here we are again, another month coming to an end that raced by and a month that didn’t know it’s identity… Spring, Winter, Spring, Winter… but we should be rounding the corner now!

Now we enter May, which is officially marked as ‘Play Tennis Month’! I know here in Texas that it can be tennis year round, but this one month gets the ‘TAG’.

So here is some May fun on the Courts!

To end April right, we have our Junior Red Ball Challenge this Sunday April 29th, 2pm-3:30pm. Any junior is welcome 5 years and older, just call our tennis shop by Friday to register. The cost is $15 per person or $10 per child if signing up more than one.
