We just completed our busy spring retreat season with retreats across the country at Omni Rancho Las Palmas, Omni La Costa and Omni Amelia Island Plantation! One part of the retreats that I love and am constantly reminded of is the connections that alumni make across the country. I love it when these friendships extend beyond the retreat weeks and into the year. I received an email last week from an alumni thanking us for a great retreat and she mentioned how her and her roommate where planning a road trip to visit other alumni from their recent retreat. I saw photos online of an alumni from the Midwest on a work trip to a city where other alumni live and they got together for tennis and to catch up. Beyond just the groundstrokes and volleys, the wins and losses, it’s amazing the friendships that are created, and continued at our retreats!
As we look ahead to the Fall and our lineup of retreats, I’m excited to again head to beautiful Key Biscayne for two weeks as well as host the retreat at my home club of Amelia Island. Each week brings a slightly different flavor, we have new activities planned for the tennis, the sun will be shining, and throughout all we’ll have the chance to see old friends as well as meet new ones.
