The place to be last Saturday night was at SYTC for the event of the season! More than 80 members, guests, and friends were treated to an inspiring tennis match by 4 of the best young players on the Cape. Our own Head Pro Harry Cohen, Aidan Roach, Max Francis, and Nick Majewski entertained and amazed the happy crowd with a high-level tennis exhibition. Everyone also enjoyed a bountiful feast of creative tapas and delectable desserts from our members and guests before, during, and after the tennis match. It was a wonderful evening with amazing tennis and great food! This is our most popular and well attended event of every season here at SYTC!
After the exhibition, club members got a chance to try and return serves from Head Pro, Harry Cohen. Many tried..., and some even got the ball back over the net! See pics below.

The Sunday Morning Mixed Doubles group had a great game of tennis this week followed by a delightful and delicious brunch at the beautiful waterside home of Pat and Mario Sakellis in Dennisport! Coordinated by Ellen and Rick Coffey, four courts participated in the standard 3-round rotation and a fifth court, affectionately known as the “rehab” court," enjoyed playing at a gentler pace while recovering from injury. Next Sunday, we look forward to gathering after tennis for brunch at the home of Maureen and Tom Corcoran in West Dennis. Signups are now open on Signup Genius for July 10th and July 17th. Join us for a fun round robin, and also sign up for potluck dishes to share for brunch. We hope to see you there!"
