SANDPOINT TENNIS...FALL EDITION

If you read my blog with any regularity, you'll find I am pretty impressed with North Idaho and Sandpoint, in particular.  There are many reasons for being such a "Babbit" for the area...world class skiing (SCHWEITZER MOUNTAIN RESORT), world class lake (LAKE PEND 'OREILLE - 5th deepest lake in the U.S. and not overly cold), spectacular mountains (SELKIRKS, CABINETS, BITTERROOTS) and unlimited activities for sport enthusiasts.

SANDPOINT "BULLPUPS" BY Kent Anderson...But you know what is really cool?  Sandpoint Middle School is one of the VERY few Middle Schools in North Idaho to have an organized tennis program.  This is just another reason to consider Sandpoint for your next home.  "Lifetime" sports are definitely a priority for the residents of this community.

As the tennis coach for both the varsity in the Spring and the Middle School in the Fall, I feel privileged to be able to work with the kids in both schools and, somehow, be a piece of the puzzle in their life journey.  It is part of my journey as well and a great release from the stresses of a Realtor® (especially in this market environment). 

On a practical note, the Middle School is a wonderful feeder program for varsity and a big reason Sandpoint Tennis is so strong.  As a native of Minnesota, I am used to Middle School tennis programs and appreciate the value of getting the kids started early in this sport.  Sandpoint's emphasis on tennis made my transition from Minnesota that much easier.  The lifelong sport concept is definitely alive and well in the tennis community.  The Sandpoint Tennis Association is pushing 100 adult members and the ages cover the gamut.

The Fall season will be coming to an end tomorrow (October 22) and, once again, I have seen marked improvement in our players.  It is always fun to watch them mature and move on to the next level.  I need to add...the young people that I have been so fortunate to coach in this town are such outstanding individuals...every one of them.  I am very appreciative and thankful for this opportunity and proud to be a member of the Sandpoint community!

GO BULLDOGS!

GOOD MORNING KENT!  I would have never thought you loved Sandpoint so much! Not with all your exciting, regular, interesting posts about property, the views, the water, tennis, schools, etc., not to mention all the fabulous photos.  I could visit and feel like I had "already been there"!  On a side note - I am impressed with organized tennis at the middle school level - don't see that here in Tucson! -- Gab

Hi Gab - I'm shocked Tucson doesn't have middle school tennis. It does have great junior soccer, though, right? ...and great coaches ...with cookies? Have a great weekend!

Hi Kent, it's just wonderful that you take the time to coach both schools.  I couldn't tell you liked living in Sandpoint! LOL!!

Hi Mary - I guess I have become way too transparent, but you know what is worse?  The more I build up Sandpoint, the more we need to deal with growth issues and I'm not sure that is a good thing.  We went through this in Aspen back in the 70's and growth won.  ...not good.  I guess I'll just keep trying to do what I can (in my small way) to make Sandpoint the best community possible.
