Village Mill Tennis
The Village Mill tennis program is in great shape, Linda King has left some big shoes to fill. I don't plan any
major changes, but I am open to any suggestions anyone may have. Please keep me posted on any
problems that may arise at the courts & remember to lock-up after you're done playing. I have had to fix the
wind-screens on the upper courts & just noticed the lower court screens have been torn down, so I will get
those back-up asap. If anyone knows anything about this, I'd love to have some help in catching the culprits!

We plan to build a backboard on the side fence of the upper courts, closest to the woods, before doing so, I'd
like to hear from any concerned neighbors so we can talk about it in advance.

Reminders of the Village Mill Tennis Rules:

   Please reserve courts on the bulletin board near the bridge over the creek.
   ALTA teams are entitled to two courts, unless given permission by the
     Tennis Chairperson. One court must be left open for neighborhood players
     during ALTA matches.
   All guest members playing on an ALTA or USTA team must pay a guest fee
     to their captain prior to the start of the season.
   Members have priority over non-members for teams. Captains must confirm
     that no current members have been overlooked before inviting a non-
     member to join their team.
   Guest members may only use the courts during team practice and
     matches.
   Team captains must submit a roster and schedule to the Tennis Chairper-
     son before the season begins.
   Tennis shoes are required on the courts.
   No activity, other than tennis, is permitted inside the court area.
   PLEASE lock the gates when you are finished.


 Swim Team Sign-Ups
 Thinking about swimming this month? BRRRRR!!!!

 Come join the Village Mill Polar Bear Club, I mean SWIM TEAM and be ready for a fun season!
 Mark your calendars for SUNDAY, MARCH 4th! We’ll be at the pavilion from 2:00-4:00 with team swimsuits to
 try on (BRR!!) and will be registering swimmers for the 2007 season. The cover will still be on the pool so we
 won’t be able to swim that day… instead, we’ll begin afternoon practices on May 14th…

 The Village Mill Vipers Swim Team provides a friendly, relaxed environment for each child to pursue his/her
                                      swimming interests. We focus on developing good technique while
                                      having fun and enjoying the water. Practices are scheduled every
                                      morning Mon-Fri with optional afternoon practices for those unable to
                                      make the mornings or just wanting to swim more. We have five weekly
                                      swim meets beginning the last week of May and ending the last week of
                                      June. Every team member is encouraged to participate once the
                                      coaching staff feels they are ready. Children are initially grouped by age
                                      for practice times, however there is some flexibility to move between
 groups. Six and under must be able to swim 25 yards (1 length) unaided, with whatever “stroke” they please,
 while Junior Swim Team members aren’t expected to know how to swim, but need to be ready to learn. Look for
 more information to come! Have questions? Call or e-mail Ginger Heidbreder at 770-551-0241/
 heidbreder@bellsouth.net.
