The very popular tennis social program that was started last summer kicked off this year’s program at Hideaway Beach Club. Summer Swing is a tennis social program that involves Hideaway Beach Club, The Island Club, the Racquet Center and the Marco Y. Eric Manring, Hideaway Tennis Director, hosted the first phase of this series on Friday, July 20. Tennis players from all four clubs filled the center to capacity in the warm and sunny weather.
Eric organized a great program which matched all players with a different partner for each of the four game sets. Points were earned by each player over three rounds. It was a great day for everyone with fun tennis and friendly competition. Each club was limited to the number of players they couldsend and the event was filled to capacity. Players in 3.0 and 3.5 participated and were paired by the Hideaway host director. Each set comprised of four games. Scores were based on the number of games won over the three sets played and the winners were determined. Hideaway Beach club provided refreshments to keep everyone healthy.
The Summer Swing invitational event involves the four major tennis clubs on the Island. The schedule calls for each club to host one mixed social in one of the four months; July, August, September and October. The next leg of this event will be played at the Island Club on Friday, August 10. Their new Tennis Director, Rick Calton will be the host. Players should refer to their own Club Director to sign up for this Island Club date.
