On Friday, November 10, 2017, the Red Oaks Parents Association hosted the annual Platform Tennis Paddle Party at Spring Brook Country Club in Morristown. Fifteen of our Middle School students enjoyed an evening of world class instruction provided by pro Michael Gillespie, husband of Middle School Director Nelyda Miguel, and Michael's colleague Ana Brzova.

Students and teachers braved the chilly temperatures on the courts and took a break by the fire in the paddle hut to enjoy a traditional paddle meal of chili and fixings provided by the PA. Special thanks to Karen Kastl for making a batch of her own vegetarian chili!

Middle School faculty member Anna McLeod and parent Kate Pastor faced Ms. Nely on the courts. Ms. Nely, an accomplished player in her own right, showed Ms. Anna and Ms. Pastor, both new players, how to enjoy the sport. It was an enjoyable evening all around!
