Welcome back Tennis Pro Chris Chaffee joining Duncan Yarworth for 2021

For the 2021 season we are pleased to announce the return of Chris Chaffee as our co tennis pro along with the return of Duncan Yarworth.  Chris has been a long time teaching pro in the Mount Washington Valley and now JTC members will be able to take advantage of Chris's fun and precise technical tennis teachings this summer.  Chris adds to the availability of tennis education at JTC along with Duncan.   JTC now has double the impact of improving our game and strokes with the Duncan/Chris combo.  In 2021 we are doubling the number of free clinics between Chris and Duncan to the members at 8 per month.  Chris and Duncan will be readily available for private lessons.   Welcome back Duncan and Chris JTC Tennis Professionals.  

Jackson Tennis CLub has a new fence!

Our 52 year old classic fence which was failing badly has been replaced with a brand new beautiful fence and upgraded design.  Comprised of true 4"x4" 8ft cedar posts and almost invisible black PVC coated wire the fence was slightly changed.   The four corners are no longer 90 degree corners but 45 degree angle thus not allowing tennis balls to get stuck in the corners.  The street side wall was kept low, 3 feet high, to provide a better spectator viewing and more inviting feeling.    

 

As promised we were able to rebuild the fence before Memorial Day May 25th when JTC officially opened for the 2020 season.   

 

 

Our fence was crafted and member volunteer built.  Many thanks to Kirk Plender and his tractor,  Paul Pacenka, Bill Prushinski and Paul Schuepp.  Also grateful for the new landscaping and flower gardens provided by Judi Crofts with help from Julie Conlon,  Paula Knight, Susan Kent.  Great team effort and results!   Finally thank you for the many donations from members to help reduce the costs of materials to the club.

tennis skirts managed to play 20 minute timed sets and rotate teams, then
enjoy their white formal table clothed party complete with home made goodies by all
