--Tennis and Padel information--
M.S.T.V Stennis shares 9 smash-court courts with the local tennis association M.L.T.C. Ready, which are located at tennis park ‘De Geusselt’. Moreover, the park is composed of 2 padel courts, 2 practice walls, a lovely canteen and large changing rooms. The tennis courts are available the whole year-round.
Padel is a combination of tennis, squash and beachball, origination from Mexico. You play 2 against 2 at a court surrounded by glass walls and a fence. The game goes as follows; the ball may touch the ground only once, before it has to be returned to the other site, over the net. In between letting the ball bounce on the ground and returning it to your opponent, the ball may also hit the wall. Furthermore the usual 'tennis rules' apply. In padel, rackets made of fibreglass or carbon are used.
Throughout the year we offer 4 training periods of 7 weeks each. The training will take place on Mondays and Tuesdays at tennis park 'de Geusselt' and will be given by our regular trainer. The training starts from 17:00 onwards. Occasionally we also offer padel training.
Almost every Wednesday night we have a toss-evening for all our members from 19:00 onwards. On these nights we mostly play doubles, which means that we pair you up in random couples. Usually, we swap after 30 minutes, this will give you the opportunity to play with and against different members. On these Wednesdays, you can also play padel, or try it if you haven't already.
On some Wednesday nights also a toss-drink will be organized, instead of a regular toss. You can still play tennis and padel like on a regular toss evening, but in addition, there will be beer pong tables and snacks. Our reason for doing this is that so you can socialize even more with each other and have the opportunity to have a nice drink together!
This tournament is only for the members of M.S.T.V Stennis. Here we will discover who is the best player in the association. During this week not only tennis matches will be played, but also a lot of activities will be organized.
