Our swim and dive team seasons are underway! The Swim Team is 1-1 with a solid win over Ply-Mar and a loss to Martins Dam. The Dive Team had their first meet last week against Martins Dam. The divers did well but the Martins Dam team came up with the win.

There is a home Dive and Swim meet this Wednesday, July 3, as we host Rose Tree Woods where the Dive Team looks forward to trying out many new dives! Please be aware that dive well will close at 2:30 and the main pool will close at 5pm for the meets.

The Sharks' last home meet will be on July 10.

TENNIS NEWS

Our evening Ladies' Member-Guest event was a big success with about 40 ladies enjoying a beautiful evening at St. Albans! The ladies played lots of tennis and pickleball followed by a delicious dinner and social time up at the tennis center.

The annual VASS tournament was held this Saturday. This event pairs tennis players of varying levels who are then assigned a handicap. Congratulations to Dwight Walker and Pam Corner for winning the event!

The men of St. Albans enjoyed a night at the tennis center with a Men's Social Thursday night. It was a great night for the men to show that the ladies can't have all the fun at St. Albans!

Coming up soon are the Breakfast at Wimbledon event and the Century Tournament. See the Calendar above for details and the flyers at the bottom of the newsletter for more information.

There are weekly Round Robins for intermediate/letter Cup ladies on Mondays 9:30 am - 11:30 am and Fridays 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm. Stay after for lunch on Mondays and an evening beverage to celebrate the weekend on Fridays. Register here!
