As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic together as a community, the board of The Woodbridge Club wants to assure its members that we are doing everything possible to make informed decisions for the safety of our members and the future of our club. We continue to meet weekly to discuss state regulations and guidelines affecting our ongoing season. All updates to our members will be listed here as decisions are made. We will continue to diligently implement policies and procedures to protect our membership and community.
Chris Raffone Tennis at the Woodbridge Club (Click this link or image below to meet Chris Raffone)
Chris Raffone Tennis focuses on providing instructional programs which are individualized to best meet the player's experience, goals, and physical abilities.
The Chris Raffone method is a highly motivating and unique teaching style which limits repetitive fatigue by making each lesson a high energy competitive experience.
In private lessons, group clinics, or team practice; positive reinforcement is used to correct stroke errors and build new skills. All aspects of play are taught at the appropriate level.
Upon completion of a session, players leave the court, not only with new knowledge, but also with a true sense of accomplishment built upon hard work by both the student and instructor.
Ladies' and Men's Night!
Beginning on Tuesday , June 29 6-8pm (for ladies’) and Wednesday June 30, 6-8pm (for men’s) we will be resuming our weekly tennis nights. The format is designed to provide maximum safety for all players. Below you will find the links to take you directly to the Tennisbookings.com website where we will be signing up.
Once on the event sign-up, you are able to reserve a place for yourself for one evening at a time or for all of the evenings. Chris will be making the match pairings ahead of time based on who is signed up for each event and each player’s ability level.
We hope that this will encourage players of ALL LEVELS to come out and play. These evenings are fun social gatherings, not Wimbleton qualifying rounds, so come play with your friends! Because matches will be determined prior to the event, please try to avoid last minute cancellations, if possible.
After play is completed, we often remain for refreshments and social(ly distanced) time. Each player should bring their own individual refreshments for now because of COVID-19.
