PBTC NEWSLETTER

 September 2018



MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Hi PBTC Members,

I hope you're enjoying the great weather we've been having and are honing your skills for our upcoming club-members-only Turkey Tournament. It's going to be held on November 3, 2018. You can learn more about the details in this newsletter, then sign up online at pbtennis.com under "events" or directly with Steve Adamson at steve@pbtennis.com.

Here's some other news to keep you up to date.

RESURFACING OF COURT 3

At the recent meeting on September 17, the Board approved moving forward with resurfacing Court 3. We will be contacting Ferandell to perform the resurface as well as the city as required. You'll recall that at the end of last year, the Board raised membership dues slightly in order to have more capital to put to use in improving the club facilities. With the completion of resurfacing Court 3, we will have resurfaced half of the courts at the club and will be looking to continue further resurfacing and other improvements in 2019. 

OCTOBER 1ST CLUB MEMBERSHIP SPECIAL

Starting October 1, new members can pay the 2019 dues and become a member of the club immediately, enjoying all membership privileges through 2018 as well. So if you know anyone who would like to join that's a great way for them to get up to 15 months of membership for the price of 12. We'll have more on membership renewal for everyone next month. 

NEW TENNIS PRO AT PBTC

We have a new instructor who has joined the club, Alex Araouzos. Alex is one of Uros' friends and colleagues and while Uros is touring the pro circuit, Alex is going to be handling clinics and private lessons at PBTC. We'll have more information forthcoming for you. I'm looking forward to getting on the court with him personally.

US OPEN MIXER UPDATE

We had a great US Open Mixer in September. You can read more about that in this edition.

FLEX LEAGUES

Our flex leagues are in the playoffs now with competition in the M3.5, M4.0, and O4.5 divisions. We have another flex league that will start in October and run through December 15. If you'd like to participate please let me or Steve know and we'll get you signed up. We're also looking to have a W3.5/4.0 division if we have enough participants.

RUN FOR A BOARD OF DIRECTORS POSITION

Please remember that if you'd like to run for one of four Board of Directors positions (2019-2020 term), you need to let the club secretary, Bob Miller, know by October 15, 2018. Bob's email is rmm@robertmillerlaw.com. Elections will take place in November/December.

DE ANZA COVE UPDATE

There are no known De Anza Cove Revitalization meetings scheduled for the public at present. Phil Tan (director) continues to stay on top of the meeting schedule and will keep us posted. In addition, as we come to the end of the year, we are also at the end of the 3-year special use permit (SUP) from the city for using the club area. We expect a new SUP will be forthcoming; we've not received any details on this yet.

POWER OUTAGE IS FIXED

I want to once again thank the city and Park & Rec for their assistance with our power outage last month. Their help was greatly appreciated.

If I can be of any assistance to you regarding any matter at the club please feel free to contact me at david_fogel_nsi@yahoo.com or by phone at 858-349-0848.

ZACH SVAJDA IMPRESSES AGAIN

Click on the link below to read an article written after an interview with Zach Svajda after he beat the top seed at his first USTA Pro Classic tournament in Claremont.

FEEDBACK ON US OPEN MIXER

We had a great U.S. Open club mixer on Friday, September 7, 2018. With over 16 participants, including some new members as well, play was lively, fun, and very close to the levels found at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Well, 2 out of 3 is pretty good. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported our event. The next club event is the Turkey Tournament coming in November.
