The Rosedale Tennis Club is doing something a fun tomorrow. Their regular weekly drop in tennis program on July 31 will be adopting a 70s theme.
This is an annual event at Rosedale. Players who attend are loaned wooden racquets and asked to dress in their favorite tennis outfit from the 1970s. As images in the photo album on the club’s website illustrate, their members really get into the spirit of the event.
For those who have never been there, Rosedale Tennis Club is located in the community of Rosedale at 901 – 11th Avenue NW. It features three hard courts, lights, windscreens and a ball machine. In recent years, there have been enough members to support two teams in the Calgary Interclub Tennis League. One at the 3.0 level and one at 4.0.
As with most outdoor clubs in Calgary, the membership of the Rosedale Tennis Club skews towards older players and a little more male than female. An annual membership for a single is about $100. Membership is open to anyone in Calgary who is prepared to join the Rosedale Community Association.
Rosedale Tennis Club was added to Racquet Network’s list of affiliated racquet sports clubs in 2017 at the request of a customer. This means that Racquet Network’s online customers can now direct part of the value of their purchase to Rosedale and the club will be able to use these sponsorship credits to purchase items for their club.
