We have a three week break in July from Badge so plenty of time for practice and social play.
July 14, Bastille Day, we will have a barbecue and social day where we will be giving away a new Wilson racquet valued at $330. Every drink bought at the bar will receive a ticket in the draw so the more drinks you buy the more chances you have to win a new racquet.
