Jeff Harrell our new President

We elected officer replacements during our Annual Meeting in March, and thanks to all who were able to attend. I was elected as the new club president and am looking forward to the next two years as we address the fantastic growth of our sport and our club. My wife and I relocated to Green Valley from Colorado three years ago and found Paul May and Donna Coon and their Assisted Play class that summer. We have been playing and making friends on the court ever since and plan to keep doing so for the next several years. Looking forward to seeing you on the sidelines or on the court in the days to come.
