SCRAMBLE DAY Jan. 5th Sat.  Come by SGHS!

It’s time to play tennis.  Start your year racking up those Scramble games and points, as well as enjoy playing fun tennis with your fellow SGTC members!  We’ll be bringing the trophies to present this Saturday to the winners.  Also, bring your completed member application form & payment dues (save a stamp!). 

For members who will renew or have renewed their membership, Lily will have "Fresh Brewed Starbucks Coffee" with all the condiments, as well as homemade Banana Nut Muffins.

This past year has been an awesome one for San Gabriel Tennis Club. Thank you for being a part of our fun, competitive, and friendly club.

Thank you to James Brentzel for leading us as President this past 2012 year.  All board members were busy with planning and organizing all kinds of activities this past 2012 year.    Many of you helped out in one way or another – thank you for helping out with tournaments, scramble days, cleaning up the courts, bringing delicious donated snacks, lunch appetizers, etc.! 

The new 2013 Board will continue the tradition of intra-club tourneys and playing with other Tennis Clubs  (Monterey Park TC –possible out of town 3 way tourney with San Diego Tennis Club, Arcadia TC, Rowland Heights Sunshine Club, San Marino Huntington Tennis Club, and Temple City TC).  We’ll also plan the annual summer Port Hueneme weekend getaway trip!  It was nice to play with the Oxnard Tennis Club for the first time last summer. Another group tennis clinic with Tim Pawley is planned.  And probably some new tennis clubs to play with 2013.

I want to thank everyone who organized the Holiday Party at Maria’s Kitchen. Lily Ng who made the reservations and ordered the delicious Italian dinner, MC’d and planned the program, kept tabs of those attending and collected the money; Lily’s daughter, Zoe, for setting up the sign in, door prize, and trophy award table; lots of members who donated door prizes; Gloria for collecting all the raffle ticket money; James, for donating the wine bottles for each table; Anna, for the invitation and program, menu flyers; Angela, for donating and bringing the yummy cake; Lisa for keeping all the Scramble Scores updated each month and buying the trophies; Mike for announcing the Scramble winners & passing out the trophies; Tony Law & Amber for conducting the fun, raucous “what’s in your purse or pockets” game that the table with all ‘bag ladies’ won!  (Remember to take a look at all the Holiday Party photos at

The board will be calling members to help out with coordinating tournaments, etc.  Be ready to increase your organizational and leadership skills.

P.S. Happy 2013!

Take a look at newlyweds, Angela Kwok & Jack Leung’s photos on the website, too. Congratulations! (
