Hello to all of our wonderful participants! In an attempt to avoid any kind of confusion, we wanted to make sure that everyone knows that the Touch of Tennis program has ended and there will be no tennis today. We are extremely disappointed that this summer has not worked out to our liking. Unfortunately we ran into multiple roadblocks throughout the summer, including heat, rain, & construction at Gwynedd, among other constraints. We really would like to have you all back next summer hopefully under far greater circumstances! Best wishes in the off season and we will be in touch next year!

Hello again, We are planning on having tennis tomorrow night at Gwynedd Mercy University at 6:30. Unfortunately, the weather does not look good. We will cancel if necessary by 5 pm.
We are very sad that the program has been delayed so much this year. We are considering if we have to cancel tomorrow, possibly offering the program on Friday evening this week. If you think you might be able to volunteer on Friday night, could you please send me a note to let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will take a look at the number of responses and see if we could make it happen. Again, thanks for your patience with the unavoidable problems this summer. We appreciate each and every one of you for all you do/have done to help with this program.
