An event every week that begins at 6:30pm on Friday, repeating until December 21, 2018
Friday evening drill 6:30-8:00 PM. FW Staff. Cost $12. Drill is only on 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th Friday of each month. Players will need to call in advance (612-252-8367, ext. 0) to reserve a spot. Two exceptions: No drill October 26 – attend our Halloween Party instead! And similarly, on December 14 come to our Holiday Party!
Your Club is partnering with the Fred Wells Tennis and Education Center (Fort Snelling) to offer tennis drills and tennis socials on most Friday evenings during the indoor season starting in September.
Here’s how it works. On all but the first Friday of each month, STPC members can participate in drills or tennis socials at The Fort. Your Club is paying for a staff instructor and court charges. (On the first Friday evening of each month The Fort is turned over to juniors, so we cannot be accommodated on these dates.)
Players will need to call in advance to reserve a spot (612-252-8367, ext. 0). The drills will be held from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m., with a cost of $ 12; check-in at the front desk, pay and sign-in on court.
On the fourth Friday of each month, instead of the STPC drills format, our players are eligible to participate in ‘Fourth Friday at the Fort’, a tennis social offered each month to all Fred Wells patrons (members). These socials will offer the opportunity for tennis round-robins, mini-tournaments, and other on-court tennis activities.
Instead of participating in the ‘Fourth Friday’ social on October 26th, players are urged to attend our Halloween Tennis Party, held the same evening at The Fort. And replacing the regular drill on Friday, December 14th, players are instead urged to attend our Holiday Tennis Party there at The Fort.
This is a new offering for your Club, emphasizing the social aspect of senior tennis. It’s an effort to better serve our members in Bloomington, the surrounding suburbs, and St. Paul. By hosting at Fred Wells in this format we will also be in regular touch with senior tennis players who are not currently members of STPC. And we welcome the opportunity to engage in additional tennis activities with The Fort – The Fort is already the site for our regular indoor social events.
This new offering will begin on the second Friday of September, the 14th, 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Clear your calendar, join us at The Fort for tennis on Friday evenings, a nice way to wrap up the week!
