Become an Early Bird player

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday a great group of guys meet for “measured” tennis. Measured tennis is the terminology used to calculate who plays who each time Early Birds compete. Birds enjoy a unique and very accurate system that’s been perfected over the years. Scores are tracked and entered through “TennisWise,” averages are queried and then new matches organized based on past performance each time. There’s nothing else like it in KC! Simply play when you can, and show up when you say you will. It’s tennis OnDemand!

Every Friday, Early Birds have breakfast together after play. Snack responsibility rotates each week from player to player, and the guys have a ton of fun with it. As you can see in the image, sometimes it’s not really breakfast…but dessert:)

“For the price of a hot dog at the park, players can be a part of a Kansas City tradition that’s been around for more than 20 years.” — Gerry Stronach, Early Bird Veteran
