Court 6 get's some shades:
July 16, 2016

Court 6 got an upgrade with new shades! It will provide some needed shade during the hot summer afternoon. Thanks goes to Kenny Marques your Club Pro, with 2 volunteers recruited that morning Robert Pitts and Sovan Ngo we installed the shades fairly after the assembly.

We greatly appreciate Terry Grove and his company "Mass Precision" for their generous donation of time and material for the modification of the supporting bars to mount the shades.

We will see you all on the courts.

Morgan Hill Junior Tennis Tournament Spring 2016:
May 2, 2016

Sunday May 1st, the Morgan Hill Tennis Club held its annual junior tournament. Former Morgan Hill Tennis Club President Jon Mockabee and Club Pro Ken Marques were the coordinators of the tournament advertising to all local High Schools and middle schools. The tournament was a great success with having 11 boys and 6 girls all home grown players. It was a round robin style tournament where all players had the chance to face each other in their respected divisions. There were five rounds that consisted of playing 5 total games. The goal was to win as many games each round so at the end of the tournament you hopefully had more games won than any other participant. It was a battle and there were many players in the hunt when the final round had approached. Satyan Patel the Sobrato High School number one singles player just edged Jordan Zimmer a former Bulldog, 19 games won to 18 to win flight one in the boys division. Alec Tang the Sobrato High number 2 singles player also just got by Shreyen Patel the Sobrato Bulldog number 3 singles player by one game 16-15. Alec Tang flight two winner, then went on to defeat Satyan Patel the flight one winner 3-2 in the finals of the tournament crowning him the 2016 MHTC Spring Boys Champion. In the girls division there were just the six players so there was no need of a two flight battle. It was still a fight to the finish as Sylviann Nguyen the Sobrato Bulldogs number one singles player squeaked by Sobrato High number two singles player Ashley Whitaker 20 games to 17. Sylviann Nguyen was crowned 2016 MHTC Spring Girls Champion. A notable mention goes out to the 3rd place finisher Aubree Tomasetti , who was our youngest participant (13 yo) who won 14 games while facing all varsity players from Live Oak and Sobrato High Schools. Champions and Finalists were awarded trophies and all participants were treated to a pizza party on behalf of the Morgan Hill Tennis Club. It was a great turn out and we are hoping to put one together in the fall.
                                       
 

The Great Tennis Flood of 2016:
April 13, 2016

In March of 2016 we experienced some major rain storms. At one point a drainage pipe in community park broke impacting the tennis court storm drains. This resulted in flood water and mud accumulating on the courts 3-6. Thanks to the cooperative efforts of Morgan Hill city workers, who remedied the underlying problem with the drains and brought 4 pressure washers to clean the courts, AND MHTC members Kate Gillis and Helene Jepsen our courts were returned to playable condition. It should also be noted that it was Jon Mockabee's leadership that got and kept the city moving to fix this problem before more serious damage could occur. When you see Jon, Kate and Helene on the courts give them a pat on the back and express your gratitude for their commitment to our tennis community.
