A Message from the Director

Dear HBC Tennis Members & Guests,

I really enjoyed my first summer at Harbor Bay Club and want to thank all of you for making me feel so welcome. I’m also looking forward to the Fall season.

As you probably know, there are lots of changes and events in the works.  I’m particularly pleased about the project in progress on Courts 11-18 and especially the conversion of Court 19. Our installation of four 36’ junior courts on number 19 will provide a unique and fun learning environment for both kids and their parents. It will also set HBC apart as one of the premier facilities for introducing the game. The USTA’s initiative for 10 & Under Tennis is sweeping the country and Harbor Bay Club will play an important role here in the Bay Area.

The hiring of Hein Tu as our new Junior Tennis Coordinator is also a positive step toward growing the entire program. Hein’s relationship with the local tennis community and role with USTA Nor Cal will be a huge asset in building a grass-roots program at HBC. From 10 & Under to High Performance Training, Hein will be heavily involved. He will work to increase our participation in the East Bay Junior League and grow a USTA Jr Team Tennis program next summer. He’ll help direct our Saturday Parent-Child clinics, plus the Summer Junior Camps.

I also don’t want our adult members to think we have forgotten them! The 30 Minute Serve clinics and Stroke of the Week will return in October. Some of the other adult programming on the drawing board for 2011-12 include:

  • Tennis & Fitness Combo Clinics with Fitness Director Sara Norgeot and myself
  • Cardio Tennis with Hein Tu
  • Tennis 101 withTennis Coordinator Andy Tupman
  • Nike Adult Tennis Weekend Camps
  • Club Championships

Another special treat for our members is coming up at the end of September.  The USTA’s Junior Boy’s National Team will spend 3 days training at HBC, in preparation for the Land Rover Napa Tennis Classic, September 23-25. Monday through Wednesday of that week, Sept 19-21, the team will be working out on our courts. This will be an great opportunity to watch some of the nation’s top junior boys in action. The Land Rover event is one of the premier college tournaments, hosted by Cal. The NCAA has allowed the USTA team to participate. Other teams entered are Notre Dame, Tennessee, Tulsa, Vanderbilt and UCLA.

See you on the courts!

The Club's spa is the only place in Alameda where I can get my nails done, or any spa treatment, without having to arrange care for my kids. As a busy mom, that's HUGE for me.

- Maureen McFall

I love the balance of exercise and socializing that the Club offers. After a workout or spin cycle class, it's great to relax with friends and a glass of wine at the Clubhouse Bar & Grill.

- Mark Landreth

At my age my joints can't handle the stress of high impact exercise but the Club offers a wonderful range of non-impact options which keep me fit and feeling great.

- Michael Morgan

I've tried a lot of gyms and they're always cramped and dirty. I love how spacious and clean the Harbor Bay Club is and how friendly the members and staff are.

- Shirley Goodman

I have a challenging work schedule and travel a lot. With the Club's Spinners tennis program, I never have to call anybody to arrange a time to play tennis. It's perfect for me.

- Ming Chin

I love how comfortable and unintimidating the Club is. I don't feel like I have to have a supermodel's body to feel good about being here.

- Cheryl Landreth

Working out at the Club has been essential to managing my diabetes and stress. The Harbor Bay Club has saved my life.

- Eric Cross

I live in Orinda but come to the Club 4 times a week because Mike Bauer [the Tennis Director] is awesome. He's very patient and a great teacher. His knowledge is amazing... I mean the guy beat Jimmy Conners!

- Leslie Rose
