Sign ups for the 2012-13 Community Park Tennis Center weekday women’s tennis leagues are underway. All players wishing to join can pick up and fill out an application at the Community Park Clubhouse, or download an application at www. gardencityrecreation.org.
Current players have first choice to rejoin their league and must be signed up for next season by Friday, April 27. After this date, openings will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis by qualified players. If you do not come in first or second in your current group and you wish to move up, you may try out for the group.
