A Word From Coach Mike

  My how time flies. Especially when we get to see the Year through the seasonal eyes of Mother Nature. It seems like we were just enjoying the hot weather and now we just went through temperatures in the 20s.  I hope everyone had a thankful holiday.   The adult clinic schedule for the winter is as follows: Monday Co-ed Beginner-Advanced Beginner—–7pm-8:30pm Tuesday Intermediate-Advanced——-10:30am-12am Wednesday Co-ed Intermediate-Advanced——–7pm-8:30pm All classes will continue as scheduled, weather permitting. I don’t do COLD well. Brrr   The junior after school program will resume in the Spring.   Members, please be aware of the weather conditions and the clay courts.  Playing on frozen courts can be unsafe and creates significantly more maintenance needs.   Remember that this is my first year staying in North Carolina through the winter. Wish me luck!   Everyone have a wonderful Holiday Season.   The tennis guy at Windyrush😎   Michael Baldwin Sr USPTA Master Professional   Weekly Winter Tennis Events   Mondays Men’s night every Monday 6:00pm-10:00pm Co-Ed Beginner/Back to Tennis Clinic 7pm-8:30pm   Tuesdays Ladies 3.0 + Drills and Skills Clinic 10:30am-12pm Men’s Night Clinic 7pm-8:30pm   Wednesdays Co-ed 3.0+ Drills and Skills Clinic 7pm-8:30pm   Thursdays Ladies night every Thursday 7:00pm-10:00pm

Spot a scam – stay vigilant this holiday season

We all know that electricity, water and natural gas services are essential to our everyday lives. Unfortunately, so do scammers. And utility customers throughout the country are being targeted by imposter utility scams every day.

One of the most common types of utility scams involves customers receiving unsolicited telephone, electronic or in-person communications from an individual claiming to be a utility company representative. The scammer warns that the customer’s electric, water or natural gas service will be disconnected if the customer fails to make an immediate payment — typically using untraceable cash such as a reloadable prepaid debit card.

While scammer tactics change daily, ways to protect yourself do not. If you get one of these phone calls hang up, call the police and your utility provider using the phone number on your bill. Stay vigilant this holiday season and put scammers out of business. Fight back by being informed and sharing with friends, family and the businesses you support.
