    Hamilton Middle School is in need of a coach for their after school tennis club team. Their longtime coach and friend of ours, Trisha Kehoe, has retired from that position. She was awesome and will be hard to replace but is there someone willing to try? The kids are great and enthusiastic. Trisha has done an amazing job of developing these kids. Details:

    Practice: Mondays beginning 4/15 through 5/27. Rennebohm Courts. Kids get out of school at 1:45pm on Mondays and walk to Rennebohm. Practice goes until 3:30p. The coach is responsible for keeping the kids organized and engaged.

    Matches: Wednesdays beginning 4/17 - 5/29 @ 3pm. Home and away matches. Four teams are expected: Hamilton, Jefferson, Eagle and Sennett.

    The weekly match schedule will be provided by MSCR supervisor, Greg Roscoe. The coach is responsible for exchanging the lineup and keeping the match moving.

    Hamilton typically has about 20 kids on their team.

    The coach has the option of volunteering his/her time or MSCR will pay at the rate of about $13 per hour. MSCR requires a background check. Information is posted on their website.

    To apply or for more information contact:

    Kris Anderson, MSCR Coordinator

    Here's an excerpt from an email by Mark J. Crosby of the City of Madison Parks Division about their new reservation system, which applies to tennis courts.

    "Madison Parks has recently moved to an online reservation system for our many athletic facilities. You can now reserve by following the ‘reserve’ links on our web page. If your reservation is for a group that is for youth athletics or tax exempt you will need to apply for those discounts by creating an account and applying on this page.  You can easily search for a general space type (soccer, backstop, ultimate, etc) or you can search for a specific park. After your initial search you can further filter spaces with things like lines, goals, lights. 

    Like our shelter reservations, full payment is now due when the reservation is made. If your reservation is rained out a cancellation will be made and your payment will be refunded."
