Summer Time is Tennis Time in Northern California

We all experienced a slow transition to Spring this year, which makes the first day of Summer all the more welcome. Even Sacramento, California was damper than normal with storms hitting the Sierra’s through the end of March.

With Summer just a week away, it’s certain that everyone living in the U.S. is now either playing or planning to play some tennis.

Besides our local U.S.T.A. leagues, Northern California has some fun weekend tournaments which are located in scenic locations, delivering a truly memorable experience. The first weekend in June one of my besties invited me to partner with her in the Tahoe Donner Tennis Tournament.


Located in Truckee, California, from the parking lot you go over a little bridge with a trickling stream, down a short path, and then you arrive at the courts. What a beautiful facility and nicely run event. This year, if you won the first round you were guaranteed to play two more matches. But don’t worry if you are out early as this location has more activities than you’ll have time to accomplish. We girls took the relaxed route after tennis and hung our feet off the dock while enjoying each other’s company.

This experience got me thinking about all the awesome locations just a car ride away. If you want to hang out in San Francisco, there is the Bay Club NTRP June 22, 2018 and The Napa Valley Tennis Classic on June 29. I’ve heard good things about the Tahoe Tennis Classic at Zephyr Cove, South Lake Tahoe Nevada. This tournament runs July 26-29, 2018.

This is a doubles tournament that attracted 200 plus entrants last year. You are guaranteed two rounds of tennis, and again same story if you are out after two you won’t be disappointed. Just enjoy all that South Lake Tahoe has to offer.

Finish your summer at the 3rd Annual Silverado Country Club Tournament in Napa, California. This year’s tournament sponsor is Beringer Winery. Enjoy complimentary wine and the bocce lounge area being set up for tournament players.

You know my dream Summer. I am thankful for my Truckee weekend and happy to be busy getting our Fall 2018 ready for your viewing. Hope you will take me along by wearing BPassionit. Enjoy your Summer!
