Cottonwood Tennis Club turned French for a day when they held a Bastille Day Social on the evening of July 14 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. They “stormed” the courts and “revolutionized” traditional tennis. About 40 people attended, but not everyone played, as the weather was scorching. Both men and women participated in the matches, but 100% wolfed down the great appetizers, drinks, and desserts. All of that was served on a tablecloth with a French flag design. CTC President Mary Ann Rice described the food as incredible.
The matches were not supposed to be seriously competitive but fun for members of all rankings, and it certainly was that. Mixed doubles, Men’s doubles and Women’s doubles constituted the schedule which was designed as a summer social get together.
Regular morning matches at the Cottonwood courts are still being held, Monday and Wednesday for women, Tuesday and Thursday for men, and Friday for mixed.
