UPG SCHEDULE CHANGE

                    SCHEDULE CHANGE NOTICE:

We are changing the sessions schedule from Tuesdays and Fridays to Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays beginning next week (Sept. 1), on a trial basis.

The reasons for the change include the following: 
1) Some members have been scheduling extra sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays.  More scheduled weekdays may alleviate the need to add extra playing time.
2) One day last week we had 26 players.  The 5 courts only hold 20 players at a time, and if there are tennis players as well, our group ends up waiting.  This problem will be magnified in the Fall when good weather brings more players out.
3) The Sunday session has been disbanded for lack of players.

Please let me know if this change causes any hardship.

Gary

The sessions are held at Gower Estates Park in Greenville, SC; sessions begin at 9:00AM.

This was an exceptional tournament, thanks to the very hard work of Gary and Kaye Allen. Joni and her crew from the Greenville County Rec Dept, the Walgreen reps and all of the ball shaggers did a great job. P'ballers came from all over the place; they played hard and still had plenty of time to socialize. A beautiful day to boot.
