Bayside Lakes Tennis Expo

March 14, 2007 08:23 AM


On March 10, 2007, Senior Tennis of Volusia, a USTA CTA, held another Welcome Back to Tennis (WBTT) event along with a tennis block party for juniors at the Bayside Lakes Community Center in Palm Bay, Fla.  This was the kick-off to organized community tennis in this 4000 home development, still under construction.  Currently, the facility has four tennis courts with a lot of residents who are enthusiastic about tennis.  Over 60 people participated in the WBTT and 20 juniors in the tennis block party.

The WBTT was conducted by Chuck Hormann, USTA Trainer, and the juniors by Lori Schiavone, Tennis Coordinator, Desoto Park, Satellite Beach.  Forty-one participants signed up for the 4-week Tennis Developmental Coaching Clinic for beginners and returning players, and 28 for the Doubles Match Play Clinic.

Like all other Senior Tennis of Volusia communities, a resident Tennis Committee under the direction of the CTA will organize the on-going tennis program at the Bayside Lakes community.  Among other tennis activities, the program will consist of social events centered around tennis and geared toward the interests of the community and its residents.  Nine residents have already volunteered to serve on the Tennis Committee.  Tennis volunteers will be identified as candidates for the USTA Recreational Coaches Workshop.  Upon completion of the workshop these volunteers will assist with the on-going community tennis program at Bayside Lakes.
