San Gabriel Tennis Club just had it's yearly tennis getaway, which was held the weekend of 9-28-2018 to 9-30-2018. On Friday, members arrived to Shadow Mountain at various times to check into the resort and enjoy some night tennis along with dinner. On Saturday morning, most members enjoyed an inter-club tournament against the members of the Shadow Mountain Resort. It was a hot and humid day, where the Shadow Mountain resort members won out against us. We will try harder next year! There was also some tennis coaching and drills, where the teaching pro gladly gave some free lessons to several of our club members. Also, alot of our members enjoyed playing some pickle-ball, which is a miniature version of tennis with smaller rackets and different types of balls. During the evening, members enjoyed our traditional BBQ which was held at the main cafe and specially prepared by Shadow Mountain staff. After dinner we held our traditional raffle and played our special game of 50/50. This year, our beloved long time member and advisor Steve M. won the jackpot! On Sunday morning, everyone enjoyed another day of morning tennis and pickle-ball in the great Palm Springs weather after which members went back home.

We again thank all those who came to our yearly event to have a fun weekend of tennis and relaxation!
