Tennis

Dear 7 Hills members,

Well, S*U*MM*E*R has gone bye bye!!! Now the days get shorter and we look forward to sweaters, pumpkins while the leaves turn and, of course, lots of tennis!

We were honored to involve many new faces and families in our programs this summer.

If you haven’t gotten the chance to meet us yet, please stop by and say hello to me and our wonderful tennis staff.  Let us show you how we can help you and your families have a great tennis experience at 7 Hills and why we set the standard for tennis instruction in the Nashville area!

I very much look forward to another great fall tennis season and to seeing all of you on the courts.

Sincerely,

Carlos Macioch

Director of Tennis
