Yet another reminder that next week is the Forest Hills Clay Court Classic and Jazz Festival. It's open to everyone. Saturday's the big day, but it will be fun all week.
By the way the Tennis Club is having a special of $1000 off initiation if you sign up between now and July 4th. $1500 off if you bought a place in FoHi (must sign up 30 days after closing). For a family of three, you're looking at about $4k a year for non tennis and $8k for tennis. Those are very approximate and might be way off. Call the club if you're interested. I'm not a member, but maybe one day. www.foresthillstennis.com
