RETURN TO TOP 2016
A little history:
Tennis players, Marty Johnson, Charlie “Barnie” Barnard, Dick Hullsiek, Rick Raser, Dick Goplin and others would gather wherever Bloomington courts were available, prior to the inception of BAJ Organization. Thereafter, tennis along with other sports, were organized under the BAJ organization in 1984.
All six VV tennis courts (resurfaced 2015) are reserved, morning hours remain in place throughout October, weather permitting. There are no fees, just show up, various playing levels from beginner to advanced, players usually pair up upon arrival on courts, doubles is normal format but 3 on 3 is also used. Swirling rotation used when uneven numbers are available.
New players/levels are encouraged and welcomed.
Location site: Valley View tennis courts, 201 East 90th Street, Bloomington
(90th Street between Portland and Nicollet, just east of swimming pool)
Starts: 1st Monday in May through/including October (starting October, with cooler mornings, start time could change to 1:00P and with volleyball starting)
Days/Times: Monday through/including Friday, 7:30A to 11:30A
Contacts: Commissioner-Kenn Trzcinski-651.815.3483
There are over 200 BAJ golfers. They converge on Dwan golf course each Monday from the 1st Monday in May thru September. Some have their regular foursomes and others just sub or fill in. All enjoy the social part of the game. There are two "scrambles" where we get to play with other golfers.
We have a lot of fun and some openings. Please join us.
A Dwan membership is required.

Bocce Ball, an old game with many stories about who, when and where it originated. All I can add to the discussion is that it is a great game to be enjoyed by everyone regardless of age or athletic ability.
Our BAJ season for Bocce starts the first Friday of May. The season runs every Friday morning from 9:AM to about 11:AM. We play a schedule where each team will play the others twice. When we get to that point there is a champion team . Next we have a two man tournament set up among guys who sign up. This takes another two weeks and we are done before Labor Day. We will field 12 teams. Basically there are 6 men assigned to each team and 4 men from each team play in a game and we alternate so everyone gets to play. It is set up that way so if some one cannot make it to the park for some reason we have a complete team ready to compete.
We always welcome new players. The game is easy to learn and not that difficult to play so physical problems should not be troublesome. Our players range in age from 60 to as young as 94 and there have been players who needed crutches,canes or walkers. We even had a fellow who was almost blind playing and he was a good player
Hope to see all the old players back and a bunch of new faces for the upcoming season.
