Summer has come and gone and although it still feels like summer with hot temperatures, the kids are back in school and the fall tennis season has arrived. This fall will be busy with adult tennis teams and Pickleball leagues as well as the Cordillera Junior Tennis Academy. Several tennis social events are planned throughout the fall and The Club Championships for men and women will be held in October.

This fall begins a new chapter in Cordillera Ranch tennis and I am pleased to say that we will have three ladies’ teams competing in San Antonio and surrounding areas. On Thursday mornings Bobbie Sandborn will Captain a 3.0 40 and over team. This team will consist of ladies at the 3.0 level who are over the age of 40 and they will play four lines of doubles each week. This league starts September 5 and runs through November. On Friday mornings Cordillera will boast two teams. Kelley Gosdin will Captain a team with a roster of 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 players that will participate in a fun citywide league that plays four lines of doubles. This team will start play September 13 and finish on November 15. Friday will also host a 2.5 team that will play one line of singles and two lines of doubles with the season starting September 6 and ending in November. It will be a busy fall for our Cordillera ladies and I wish them the best of luck!
Pickleball is a growing sport and social activity, and Cordillera Ranch is experiencing this growth as well. Afternoon and evening leagues are planned along with group outings to play against other clubs in San Antonio. Combined with our normal social play, the Pickleball courts will be busy this fall.
The Cordillera Junior Tennis Academy is a three day per week junior program for ages 10 and under through 18 and under. This program begins on August 20 and meets Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays after school, providing a path for junior players to develop skills and strokes to allow them to be successful in middle school and high school tennis and an opportunity to seek qualification for a state ranking through the USTA. The Cordillera Junior Tennis Academy will continue into December.
Social events, Club championships, Ladies Member-Guest, new member clinics and ongoing clinics and lessons will surely make for a fun and exciting fall for Cordillera Ranch Tennis.
Hope to see you on the courts soon!
