The Sip ‘N Serve Series is kicking into high gear this winter with a new site locked in for Orange County. The Racquet Club of Irvine will play host to Sip ‘N Serve’s newest program starting in late January.
The Sip ‘N Serve Series is USTA Southern California’s take on a nationwide initiative to engage millennials in tennis. It’s a non-competitive program that runs as a high-energy tennis class, while also providing networking opportunities for young adults. While each series is run independently, players can expect 1-2 hours of tennis and a social element that follows directly after. The series is open to anyone and everyone who loves tennis or is looking to learn how to play. All levels are welcome.
In 2016, players sipped and served in Long Beach, West LA, Marina del Rey, and San Diego.
The Racquet Club of Irvine is hosting its first series on Friday nights at 6 p.m. The series will run for six weeks starting on January 27th and will run through March 3rd. Non-members can expect to pay $25 to drop-in for one night or $90 for the series. Tennis will be followed by food at drinks at the club bar.
Marina City Club in Marina del Rey is set to host its winter series Thursday evenings January 12-February 16. The cost is $25 per session or $90 for the full series for non-MCC members. As always, food and drinks to follow at the club bar.
And Balboa Tennis Club will host is next series starting on January 22. Energetic USPTA coaches head the San Diego Series and head coach Amanda Fink has structured the program to focus on beginners. This series runs on Sunday evenings and will run for five weeks. Don’t worry, you’re off the hook for Super Bowl Sunday. Pay for the entire five week series for $50 or drop in for a class or two at $15/session.
