Newsletter July 2017
We would like to thank our eredivisie teams for the good matches they offered us as spectators. Both teams have put up a battle, but the competition was fierce. Despite their degradation, they (and we) can look back with pride on this time

TEMPORARY USE OF TENNIS COURTS AT THOR DE BATAAF
From Saturday 15th of July - 23rd of July The Hague Open will be played again at the Mets. Therefore you can play at our club until the 12th of July. Between Wednesday 20th of July and Monday 1st of August you can play at Thor de Bataaf if you bring your KNLTB card. Please note that on Monday the 24th of July the courts will only be available until 7 p.m.
You’ve might have heard the rumors, de Mets started a ‘laddercompetitie’. It is an internal competition in which you play other members of de Mets. We use the app Clubladdar (a Dutch app). Joining is simple:
- Download the App (in App store and Google Play)
- Select De Metselaars and sign on (‘meld je aan’)
- Select your level
- Select the day you would like to play
The app automatically selects your opponents, you don’t have to do that yourself. You can also invite other people via the app - the more the merrier!

RACKET TREKKEN FOR METS KIDS AND JUNIORS
This summer, as of July 9, every Sunday from 15.00-17.00 hours there's 'rackettrekken' for MetsKids and junior members. Is gives you the chance to play with somebody new. So call your tennis friends and join us at de Mets!
MEMBERS RECRUIT NEW MEMBERS
Last year we’ve, despite the trend both national and in The Hague, managed a growth in our total membership. More members joined than cancelled their membership.
This year we would like to match or improve this result. And we need your help because research shows: most new members join because their family, friends, neighbors of co-workers are already member of de Mets. So please tell your friends that if they join midseason, there’s a discount on the membership fee. And they will also have the chance to enjoy free tennis lessons for new members this fall!
