This club has room for new players from beginners to advanced. All ability levels are welcome. We are friendly inclusive, and a recreational level program. But we are also pleased that some of our players have done well in tournaments.
See Doug Deyoe, the coordinator at the door for details and costs, or email him at email@example.com.
Now in its 12th year, those persons who come for even one night tend to come back again and again due to the sense of community and healthy supportive challenge fostered by members of the program. "We even say excuse me when you are hit by a smash!!"
This activity is held from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. at the Corey Gym, accessible from the lower Church Street entrance of the Carlisle, MA Middle School. The address of the Middle School is 88 School Street, but please use the Church Street entrance and parking lot.
This is an adult activity of the Carlisle Recreation Department, but players under 16 are permitted when accompanied by an adult and with the permission of the coordinator. Players of all levels are welcome, from beginner/recreational to experienced/advanced. Peer instruction and support are offered. The club continues to invite all persons who have an interest in learning to play and those more advanced who are willing to mentor newer players. Doubles play is primary and singles are available if no one is waiting. The emphasis is to get exercise and have fun and to have an enjoyable and challenging time in a supportive setting, while improving skills and techniques.
Bring your own racquet, or use one of the club racquets. Bring your sneakers to wear - no street footwear should be worn on the courts. Plastic birds are supplied, and you are welcome to bring and use feathered birds. There are six courts with painted lines. There is plenty of time to play. This is one of the largest clubs in the area. The ceiling is high, with good visibility. Doubles play is the norm, but singles play is possible when space permits.
There are two options for paying fees:
When there is non-dry weather, all players are strongly urged to bring a separate pair of footwear for play.
