Ladies Winter Parties

Even though there is still a lot of winter left and we cannot play outside, all Women participants of the GCTA Summer League are invited to a free, round robin indoor preseason party!   We'll take care of everything - balls, snacks, and courts divided by levels.  You can enter drawings for free tennis lessons and gift certificates!  And you'll get to see your friends from the summer leagues!
