2. Jack Dow Round Robin
Save the date: May 4-7 from 8:00am - 3:00pm at InnerCity Tennis!
The Jack Dow is our big tournament of the year, honoring our founder. Events include Men’s, Women’s, and Mixed Doubles - skill levels 2.5-4.0. Just $15 per event guarantees you at least three regular sets or two pro sets. Nourishing snacks and opportunity to meet other players at your skill level – like last year, each round-robin group will have its own table to organize and socialize.
You play “at or above" your skill level as shown in the April 2015 Roster. STPC suggests that stronger 3.5 players, including 2014 winners and runners up, consider playing at the 4.0 level. Playing up a level will result in better games and will perhaps improve your play through stretching yourself. Find a partner and get signed up!

ICT's goal is to raise $3,000 to support youth who would not otherwise have the opportunity to access the incredible opportunity for tennis training and life lessons that TLC represents. If STPC members are motivated to support this cause - please see Samantha Smart Merritt, Executive Director at ICT at 612-584-4732 or Samantha@innercitytennis.org. Thank you!
