Tennis Club Cinco De Mayo

Jerry Tarpley

On May 5, 24 members and officers of the tennis club held their annual Cinco de Mayo Tennis Mixer. After five rounds of spirited play, scores were tallied and prizes were awarded. Mike Welton and Bob Hauck received gift certificates for rounds of golf and cart rental from our Wildhorse Golf Course pro shop. Steve Simecek and Patrice Forsyth received gift certificates to the Wildhorse Grill. Andy Apiecionek, Jackie Kuykendall, Don Skokan and Sandy Thompson received apparel from the pro shop.

After the completion of the awards, 40 players, officers and guests vamoosed to the home of Joan and Darrell Smith to enjoy a Mexican buffet. The buffet included tacos, salsa, guacamole, queso, Mexican rice, Mexican beans and dessert of pumpkin spice cake and brownies. Many thanks go to Sue Ehinger, Nancy Tarpley, Lois Mitchell and Joan Smith for the food preparations. As always, there was plenty of cerveza and margaritas to ensure that a good time was had by all!

The Tennis Club would like to invite any residents of Robson Ranch Denton, who would like to enjoy the fellowship of other tennis enthusiasts and improve their tennis skills to join the Tennis Club. The fee for Tennis Club membership is only $10 per year. This includes opportunities to participate in leagues and planned events throughout the year. Drop-ins are held M-W-F from 8:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m., as of May 1.

All club members should mark their calendars and watch MYGROVE for notifications about our next social event on June 30 “Breakfast at Wimbledon.” This event will include a tennis mixer followed by strawberries and cream.

We look forward to a great season of fun and fellowship during the coming months. Please come out and join in the fun at our excellent tennis facilities!
