CONGRATULATIONS TO POLO MEMBERS

Dear Members,
The 23rd Annual CATA Junior Awards Banquet was held this past weekend and Polo players and coaches received some top honors!  The Junior players and coaches have been working extremely hard and we are proud to have them represent Polo Tennis Club.

Congratulations to Cooper McClure and Ashley Cruz-Moores.  Both were awarded MVP for their season.

A big congratulations to Jayci Goldsmith for receiving Female player of the Year and Coach Anders for receiving Junior Coach of the year!

CONGRATULATIONS MEN’S 3.5 USTA TEAM: CITY CHAMPS 
The men went 6 and 1 on the season only to be in 2nd place in our division even though they were tied with riverside. So they played in a semi final match against the number one team from the North and beat them all 5 matches with riverside also beating their opponent.The Polo team faced Riverside in the finals and won 4-1  To win the city championship! This is the 1st time they have won that as a 3.5 team. 2 years ago they went as the 2nd place wild card representing Austin in the state sectional championships. This year they are  going as the number one seed!!!

FROM DINKA

As we are finishing our USTA and WTTA seasons, there are two teams that I would like to recognize for having an outstanding season.

First team would be our 2.5 USTA team that has been very dominant this year and qualified for the playoffs this weekend. They fought really hard but ended up losing a very close match,  with a final score of 2/1. Congratulation to their captain Tammi Hill and all the players for working extremely hard to qualify for playoffs.  They will continue their season with an opportunity to compete at Little State in August.
USTA 2.5 Team: Monica Rogers, Jennifer Krajecki, Lori Foster, Suzy Foster, Connie Hagen, Viktoriia Jones,  (Not Pictured: Captain Tammi Hill and Rita Deddins)

Another team that had a great season is our WTTA Flight 4 team, who is currently in second place. They only have one more match to play and if it goes well and they end up in top 2 spots of their flight, they will be moving up to flight 3! Good job ladies!

PERSONAL TRAINING with GARY SHELLY

Hello Polo Club members

The importance of good posture. We all know that sitting for long periods of time is not good for our bodies, but did you know that being in that position could be the reason your shoulder hurts? It’s possible. Did you know that how your feet are positioned could be the reason for your back pain? It’s possible.Just because your body has adapted to these positions doesn’t mean it can’t be corrected. Don’t just accept this is how it will always be.  The goal is to try to get the entire body back into proper alignment.The first step is to identify the dysfunctions and compensations. Once we know what to correct we build a program with the right exercises to re-align the body.If you want more proof check out Pete Egoscue. There are tons of testimonials and several bestselling books available. I highly recommend “Pain Free.”I have helped several people with postural issues. If you would like more information on how to correct your posture and learn about your own body please contact me for a FREE assessment.See you at the club!
