Social Tennis Events

The Club offers social tennis events for members to play without the pressure of competition. Known as our “Smash n’Bash” doubles events, members play and rotate partners throughout the event. Smash n’Bash Tournaments are a great way for members to get to know other players and socialize at the same time. A lively dinner usually follows for everyone to relax and relive the fun of the evening.
