The Aspen Tennis Club will kick off the summer season with the third annual open house Saturday.

The Aspen Tennis Club, located at the Aspen Golf Course, will host the open house from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

“Get your tennis game back in shape and try out our clay courts for free,” said director of tennis Gary Quandt. “We will have free ball-machine usage for the day and courts will be free all day.”

Quandt said people can have a chance to meet the staff, including head tennis professional Gayle Godwin and tennis pro King Koehler. He said there will be information on the summer instructional, competitive and social programs at the Aspen Tennis Club.

A “Rally for the Cure” event also is planned as a fundraiser for the fight against breast cancer.

“We have added an evening adult clinic on Tuesdays,” Quandt said.

There are monthly memberships available as well, he said.

Quandt said two NTRP adult tournaments, sanctioned by the USTA, will be held this summer.

“For juniors besides our instructional programs, we will be starting a free Tuesday afternoon play-day from 2 to 4 (p.m.),” Quandt said. Players can just show up and matches will be arranged among the junior players.

“We also have a USTA-sanctioned junior tournament sponsored by the Elks in August,” Quandt said.

The free tennis courts at Iselin Park are going through renovation with the installation of four pickle-ball courts.
