December Tennis News from Sierra View Country Club
Nothing stops tennis players from playing tennis at Sierra View Country Club, not cold weather for sure. We just bundle up and keep on swinging. Perhaps the December rains will dampen our spirits, but come dry weather, we are back! November tennis was beautiful, as the courts were busy with play and surrounded by the colors of Autumn. The ladies tennis leagues have ended, but they are sharpening their skills on Monday evenings with tennis drill and play. Men drop-ins on Tuesday and Thursday evenings are in full swing. Junior tennis fall session ended at the end of November, but the winter session has begun from December through January.

November Tennis News from Steve Dunmore
The beauty of fall has arrived. The tennis courts are surrounded by leaves of gold, red, brown and orange with a touch of chill in the air. It is a pleasurable time to play tennis.
On Saturday, October 18th, two enjoyable games paired up in the Golf and Tennis Challenge. Only the craftiest and most skilled at both dared to compete against the Professionals—Steve Dunmore and Jim Salazar. The males were well represented. First place winning team was Bob DePalma and Geno Delyon. A very close second place was the team of Barry MacDonald and Fred Mitsch. Honorable mentions were Matthew Brunnquell, Mark Denning and Don Stroup, who gave their best efforts. Of course, these male competitors were well supported by their better halves, Linda Mitsch and Christine MacDonald. .
Our Halloween Tennis Social was on Friday, October 24th. It was very successful, with six courts of costume clad tennis players. The tennis winners with the most games won were Robby Denning and Anthony Chin.
