Some of the skills that you will acquire include: doubles positioning and movement, mental toughness techniques, communication, racquet skills, and aggressive play such as poaching and the "I" formation.

Pro Shop:
Elizabeth has been busy and new retail merchandise is arriving every day. For the women we’ll carry Tail, Bolle, Sofibella, Lucky in Love, and Jofit, as well as bags and totes by Whak Sak.

We also carry visors, caps, Thorlo socks, various accessories and, new this year, a fine line of UV-protection sunglasses by Oakley.

Tennis Tip:
When playing doubles, you and your partner need to move in unison to cover the court properly. To accomplish this, pretend you are “joined at the hip” by a rope eight to ten feet long. If you move to one side of the court, obviously, your partner has to move that way too, or risk “breaking” the rope. Breaking the rope creates an opening between you. This is especially important when you are both at the net. Good spacing will make your opponents try risky down the line shots or lobs and that can create opportunities for you.

Wintergreen Resort to Get $12 Million in Improvements


Wintergreen Resort to Undergo $12 Million in Improvements

WINTERGREEN, Va. (Sept. 5, 2012) – Nearly $12 million will be invested in facilities and infrastructure improvements at Wintergreen Resort over the next 16 months by the James C. Justice Companies, highlighted by an immediate $6 million infusion, in cooperation with the Nelson Country Service Authority, to build a five-million gallon raw water storage tank and pumping station that will double the resort’s snowmaking capacity for the upcoming ski season, as well as provide a redundant water supply to the water treatment plant.

Ski Season to Benefit from Increased, Technically Advanced Snowmaking Capabilities

The new high-tech snowmaking equipment will allow Wintergreen Resort, twice named “Best Ski Resort” by readers of, to open more ski and snowboard terrain earlier and to deliver more consistent snow conditions throughout the season according to Jay Roberts, the property’s Vice President of Resort Operations.

Other near-term projects include:

  • upgrades and expansion of the Wintergreen Aquatics and Fitness Center;
  • renovation of Devils Grill, the mountaintop clubhouse restaurant that combines spectacular views with an elegant, private club-style atmosphere; and
  • upgrades to the fitness facility at Stoney Creek.

As part of the renovation, the golf course and facilities at Devils Knob will be privatized. Access will be available to members, their guests and registered resort guests starting with the spring 2014 season. At an elevation of 3,850 feet, the Devils Knob golf course, designed by Ellis and Dan Maples, is the highest in Virginia with 50-mile views of the Shenandoah and Rockfish Valleys.

The Justice Companies have committed another $3.2 million to maintenance and improvements throughout the resort.

“This investment reflects our commitment to Wintergreen Resort,” said James C. Justice, II, Chairman, President and CEO of James C. Justice Companies, Inc. and The Greenbrier Resort®. “Our vision is to make this among the top four-season resort experiences in the east and we see tremendous opportunities in developing new membership programs and vacation packages. The Wintergreen facilities are spectacular and the entire Resort has a tremendous impact on the local and regional tourism industry.”

Wintergreen Resort, located 35 miles southwest of Charlottesville, Va., is a four-season mountain retreat with beautiful views on the eastern slopes of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Situated on 11,000 acres adjacent to the George Washington National Forest, the Resort offers a unique vacation, social, and conference setting with skiing, snowboarding, and tubing, 45 holes of championship golf, a tennis center with three indoor courts and 19 outdoor clay courts, a full-service spa featuring 13 treatment rooms, a fitness center, and multiple dining options. Additional amenities include a lake, swimming pools, a youth entertainment center, and 40,000 square feet of combined indoor/outdoor meeting space.
