Yellow Dog News


Charles Dickens summed up my current state of affairs in one very appropriate sentence.

“It was the best of times and it was the worst of times.”

 It has been 23 days since I taught my last tennis lesson, and I miss my work. At the same time, being able to spend 23 continuous days with my family has been wonderful.

There was a nugget of clarity in the news today regarding a slow transition back to normalcy, and that prompted me to hop onto the computer and touch base with the Yellow Dog Tennis “pack”.

It may be possible to resume tennis instruction, on some level, beginning May 8th. I anticipate that it will be limited to small groups (4 person clinics and/or private lessons). Whatever format is approved, I want to let you know that I will be available and will begin to put my schedule together based on a Monday, May 11th start date. Please contact me at my new email address ( to schedule a private or small group lesson.

There has been a great deal of speculation surrounding how long it will be before we get back to business as usual. While I believe that the outdoor season could be severely modified, we should get the green light to resume normal tennis activities by the time the indoor instructional program begins on October 19th.

Information for all of our junior and adult instructional programs being offered for the 2020-2021 season will be posted on the website in the near future. If at any time, you have questions regarding our tennis programs, please let me know via email.

I look forward to seeing all of you in the very near future!
