A Word from the General Manager
New furniture and fitness equipment, a tasty cafe menu and fresh landscaping are just a few of
the highlights that are making The Paseo Club sparkle these days. In the coming weeks, so much
more is planned. A summary of facility improvements follows:
• Tennis Courts--weather permitting, members will be playing on newly resurfaced,
  “US Open-Blue” courts beginning next week.
• Pool Area--just in time for Spring, new cabanas, furniture and foliage will “plus-up”
  pool time at the club.
• Loggia--a specially created tapas menu will become available in the newly created
 “Loggia Lounge” complemented by a unique sampling of our state’s best wines and microbrews.
• Fitness Center--a tented area for private group training along with a fleet of new spin bikes will     Mark Tropeano
  delight many members who are looking to be “bathing suit ready.”
• Women’s Locker Room--many new getting-ready-for-the-day amenities have been made available
  in the women’s locker room...we hope you consider it your “home away from home.”
• Cafe--culinary consultants assisted club management in the architecture of the new cafe menu, including gourmet
  salads, wraps and pizzas as well as kid-favorites such as chicken tenders, hamburgers and french fries. Additionally,
  the club’s cuisine will be served on its new line of china.
• Tent--With its wide array of entertainment including video games, ping pong, arts/crafts and musical instruments,
  the tent will be THE younger set’s primary destination at the club.
From the trampoline, Nintendo Wii system and new ping pong table in the newly refurbished tent, to the new menu,
kitchen equipment and china in the cafe, top-notch services for our membership will continue to maintain our premium
status as Santa Clarita Valley’s finest tennis, fitness and social club.

Sincerely, Mark   Tropeano, General Manager

The Paseo Club’s Tennis Program
Dear Members,

The weather finally seems to be warming up and with the nice weather will come some great
tennis! We have been waiting to begin resurfacing our tennis courts until the weather warms up.
We anticipate getting under way in the next couple of weeks if the weather stays nice. The cement
must be above 60 degrees for the surface to be applied correctly, but our court contractor is ready to
go. If you want to get started playing tennis but don’t know how, please do not hesitate to contact
me and I will be happy to help you get more involved in playing tennis here at The Paseo Club
