SEAVIEW TENNIS 2013 APRIL, 2013

The Seaview tennis courts will officially open, Memorial Day Weekend, Friday, May 24, 2013. Please introduce yourselves to the pros before going onto the courts for the first time.
Simo Alami returns to Seaview Tennis as our Head Pro.

NOTE: Only those eligible members who have completed their Applications and fully paid their Association fees will be permitted to use the tennis courts. (Families who rent homes in Seaview must be sure that the homeowner has paid their Association fees in order to be eligible for tennis membership.)

The Tennis Committee has added exciting new programs for children, teens, and adults during weekdays. The Combined Adult Membership Program - - weekday-weekend play - - will be in effect this season for those members fortunate enough to spend most of their summer in Seaview.

Weekend games will be scheduled for seasonal play starting in June, with open time reserved for those Members not scheduled for weekend games (see Green Membership Categories sheet for the details).

The Revised Rules, found on the bottom of this letter, set out who is eligible to play on the Seaview tennis courts. Please read the Rules carefully.

In order to have an orderly and equitable assignment of court time, it is important that the Tennis Committee receive all scheduling requests as soon as possible. Assigned times for play will be posted by June 28, 2013. Prior to June 28, 2013, last year's assigned court times will be in effect for the weekends and weekdays for eligible tennis members.

If you are new to Seaview, or to tennis, and do not have a game, we suggest you take an "Unscheduled Membership" (#8), and consider registering for participation in a tennis clinic given by the pros or a private lesson with one of our pros. If you later decide that you would like to be in a scheduled game, you can speak to the Head Pro about getting you into a group on your level of play. See the Head Pro if you have any questions.

Until May 24, 2013, please send the completed application form for each household (YELLOW FORM}, scheduling form (GREEN FORM), for each player, along with your check, made out to SEAVIEW TENNIS, and mail the check to:
Alan B. Dunst, Chairman, SEAVIEW TENNIS
8 Wooleys Lane - B-30
Great Neck, New York 11023

After May 24, 2013, application packages and tennis fees will be accepted by the Tennis Pros at the courts. They will also have blank forms available there for your convenience. If you have any questions, we ask that you address them to the Tennis Pros in attendance. The Pros will refer any policy issues to the Tennis Committee.
