Grotarian Event – Barnes Tennis Center
May 17, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Please join the Grotarians and their families for an fun and active night at the Barnes Tennis Center in Point Loma. We will have a tour of the complex, conference room and tennis courts. We will see the clay courts, some of the few in Southern California. Demonstrations will be held on the courts, including the kids’ courts, so bring your young ones and let’s see them hit the ball. The Director of Tennis will provide us with a history, not only of the Barnes Tennis Center, but also of tennis itself. Did you know that the history of tennis dates back several thousand years? The game was first created by European monks to be played for entertainment purposes during religious ceremonies. The game soon became very popular, predominantly in France where it was adopted by the royal family. In 1874, tennis the first tennis courts emerged in the United States.
We will finish the evening off with dinner by Rubio’s and beverages.
