I’d like to play mixed with one of you all, but I have USTA Saturday morning and already have to request a later start and that might just be pushing it. But sign up, let’s go to the draw party Friday night and eat and drink, and let’s spend the weekend winning.

Remember, if you sign up, let me know, especially if you have a USTA match Saturday. The director said I can email him the list of us who would need a later start and he will try to accomodate us. Try, he said. But he sounded hopeful. Bigger the group, more willing he’d be I’d guess.

Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with this tournament. But I love tennis, and I love dogs, and I love weekend tournaments and the tee-shirts they give up and goodie bags and all that stuff. This could totally suck. Could be horribly organized. I could be totally overenthused. But whatevs. It’s how I do.
