Social Activities include the Hello Tournament and the Club Championships Parties. Activities also include low cost weekend trips, mostly to tennis resorts within a two hour drive. However, trips have also ranged as far afield as Hawaii, where Club members went to a Luau and met – no kidding – the King of Hawaii.
