The Virginia high school girls tennis team capped off a great season by finishing third in the class A team competition. The third-place match was a real nail biter; Virginia's number two singles player Ava Warren sealed the victory with a 6-4 3rd set win. This gave the Blue Devils a 4-3 victory over a very tough Foley squad. Great job Lady Devils!
Also congratulations to the area players who participated in the individual competition. The Virginia doubles team of Callie Mauston and Alex Saxhaug played well. The Eveleth doubles team of Audrey Delich and Maddi Jankila won their opening round match to advance to the quarterfinals before being eliminated by a tough Breck team. Eveleth's Cora Delich advanced to the finals of the singles consolation bracket before losing 11-9 in a third set tiebreaker to an excellent player from Winona. Way to go Cora!

Junior yearly members (both individually and as part of a family membership) will receive the benefits described on a separate page.
We are considering installing a keyless entry system for yearly members. If it is feasible, this would allow yearly members to use the club for extended hours.
We are also working on a combined golf and tennis membership. As soon as the price is determined, we will present that option.
Our staff and board members encourage you to consider joining for a year.
If you have any questions regarding these membership rates, call the club at 742-3429 and ask for Jim. If I'm not available, I will return your call as soon as possible.
If you would like your child to develop tennis skills this winter, please consider purchasing a one-year junior membership at our indoor club. Cost of this one year membership is $200. Yearly members receive these benefits:
1) free unlimited use of the indoor tennis courts
2) free drill sessions for students in grades 7-12. These sessions are $10 per session for non members.
3) free group lessons. Each session of group lessons runs for five weeks, with a 1 hour lesson each week. Cost per session is $50 for nonmembers (but free for members). We will offer one fall session, two winter sessions, and one spring session. Again, these lessons are included with a 1 year membership.
4) the 1 year membership also includes the summer tennis program. So if your child participates in summer lessons next year, there will be no charge for yearly members.
If you are interested in purchasing a membership, please call the club at 742-3429 and ask for Jim. We do accept credit cards for the 1 year membership. We also have a family membership option. All of the benefits listed above are included with the family membership. The staff at the Virginia indoor tennis and pickle ball club is working hard to provide opportunities for players of all ages to play and learn tennis. A yearly membership will provide your child with a great opportunity to improve his or her tennis skills. Thank you for your consideration.
