Tennis (Home Page) - General Info
Dear SHYC Members,
After another long and cold winter, the summer season is finally upon us! We are all looking forward to another wonderful summer at the Scituate Harbor Yacht Club and I am so excited to be serving as the Tennis Chairman. I am pleased to announce that Head Tennis Professional Mike Davis will once again be leading our tennis program. I learned to love the game of tennis on these same courts many years ago. SHYC tennis should be fun for the entire family!
We plan to have most FINALS at the end of the summer as in past years. We may attempt to do some of the smaller adult tennis tournaments in an entire weekend with the Finals on Sunday night. I think that this will depend on the weather and the number of matches. However, the larger draws, such as the Parent Child, SMUT, Mixed and Adult Junior will all play their finals and the consolation finals at the end of the summer. We hope that this approach will please most. I would like to encourage any and all members to contact me with any questions, concerns, recommendations or ideas to help improve and build upon the great traditions of SHYC Tennis.
I would like to thank my Tennis Committee, who have graciously volunteered their time and efforts to help support and organize this summer's various tennis tournaments. Some of these members have been running these tournaments for many years and we are extremely grateful. I thank them well in advance of the summer, for their tireless efforts and assistance. The Tennis Committee is made up of the following individuals: Jen & Mike Davis, Deb & Kevin Barbary, Chris Berry, Beth & Mike Callahan, Lianne & Paul Cataldo, Janice & Tom DiPesa, Michelle & Tom Dwyer, Lisa & Peter Finnegan, Ellen & Peter Fitzpatrick, Eileen & Bob Hamel, Barbara & Chris Horne, Karen & Eric Limont, Rosemary & Dave Nelson, Jen & John Palmer, Tyla and Sean Quirk, Suzanne & Rick Russell, Lianne & Paul Cataldo, Joan Ankner, Jennifer and Andrew Sage, Lori & Peter Gates, Maureen and Terrence Faherty, Julie and Dan Gilbert, Sarah and Ben Ryan, Allison and Sean Ryan, Marianne & Roy Coates, Erin and Brian Brighton, and Bill Corbin.
Thank you to Commodore Davis, Tennis Pro Mike Davis, the Tennis Committee and here's to a great season at SHYC! See you on the courts!

Key Events & Dates
The Tennis Season will officially get going the first week of June, but lessons start June 18th.
Mon June 4, 7:30 PM Men's Doubles Night Tennis will begin for the season and will take place every Monday night through the end of September. This is a casual and fun way to meet new members and friends and play some great tennis.
Thurs June 7, 7:30 PM Adult Round Robin Night Tennis will begin for the season and also run through the end of September. This too is a casual and fun way for adult members to meet new members and friends and play some great tennis. We are always looking to conduct fun events in conjunction with these nights, so please feel free to reach out to me with any interesting ideas you might have. This year we are running these similar to the Ladies Coffees where different members will offer to run one week, rather than asking a member to be there every week. Please let me know if you might be interested in organizing a Thursday night. It is casual tennis and a great way to meet new friends!
All Lessons will begin the week of June 18th and will run through August 31st . Separate from this packet, you'll find a SHYC Lesson Information Packet with all lesson and schedule details.
