August 2015 Newsletter
With summer in full swing, Nellie Gail has been busy – our 21st summer of summer camps has been another successful one thus far, the courts are buzzing both morning and night, and as always – we’re looking forward to some exciting events!
DONATE YOUR GENTLY USED DRESSES TO TEAM DARK HORSE!
From now through Friday, August 14th, Team Dark Horse is collecting gently used formal dresses, shoes, jewelry and clutches for the annual Marine Corps Birthday Ball.
The Birthday Ball is a Marine Corps tradition held every year to cut the cake and celebrate the establishment of the Continental Marines in 1775. It is an event steeped in tradition and to which Marines of all ranks are invited and encouraged to attend.
Team Dark Horse supports the Birthday Ball Gown Exchange so that the wives and girlfriends of Marines will have an appropriate dress to wear. The donation box is located inside the front doors of the tennis club. We appreciate your generosity!

CALCUTTA IS COMING OCTOBER 2-4!
Nellie Gail will be hosting their annual club Calcutta tournament October 2-4! Calcutta is a tennis tradition many clubs have; teams comprised of mixed doubles partners compete against each other, with the top two teams taking home prize money. Although the weekend revolves around stiff competition, it is also a weekend of fun as there is a theme involved and it is a great opportunity to meet other members of the club from every level.
This year, we will also be giving a portion of prize money to the Amy Oki Foundation, a non-profit started by one of our own members, Erynne Oki, in honor of her sister. More information to follow!
The weekend includes a reception/bidding party on Friday night, play starting on Saturday and finals happening on Sunday!
