The Marina City Club enjoyed another wonderful tennis trip to the beautiful and historic La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club in early May. The weather was questionable, however, on Saturday we enjoyed competitive tennis in the form of Men’s and Women’s Doubles with the La Jolla players. As always, Conan and Doug paired us with very competitive players. We mixed around and in the end the La Jolla team swept Mcc, but all was in good fun. After the matches some of our ladies participated in a La Jolla live ball clinic.
On Friday night we went to the Marina Room, the La Jolla Club’s fancy restaurant right on the water. On Saturday night after meeting in Gene and Mindy’s room for cocktails and joking, we all gathered at the Shores Restaurant for another delicious dinner with an ocean view. The food tasted wonderful and so was the company. Caroline Rook and Linda Pence talked about their tennis escapades from earlier in the day and John Marshall and Gene raved about the excellent competition they faced on court one that morning. All in all, despite being rained out on Sunday, the rooms and company made for a relaxing weekend in the beach community.
Our next tennis trip is scheduled for November 2017 in Palm Desert. Please keep an eye out for Gene’s emails to sign up for another great tennis escape.
