Point Set Reopens After Sandy

Four long months after Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on much of Long Island, Point Set Tennis reopened amid great fanfare and fun. The club, in Oceanside, held an open house to celebrate its rebirth. "Hurricane Sandy did quite a number on the club, but after all the construction was finally finished, it was time to celebrate," said Tonny Vandepieterman, Director of Tennis.

The club's staff was available for two hours of junior tennis and two hours for adult players. The club stayed open afterwards for free open play. A total of 300 players showed up to celebrate the brand new facility. "We organized different tennis activities on each of our seven brand new ‘US-Open style’ tennis courts and we served light refreshments and held a raffle for a new tennis racquet and other equipment," Vandepieterman said.

"We feel very blessed that our ownership showed tremendous commitment getting our club up and running as soon as possible as well as making the investment to upgrade the club to a state of the art modern facility. Managing partner, Marc Kemp, and club manager Lori Pujol spent countless hours making sure Point Set Tennis will be better than ever!"
