Our tennis court will be available for idle knockabouts/highly competitive matches on a (literal) first come, first serve basis, and you’ll find a host of lawn games to play, too. Up at the Patio, we’ll be serving lunch and drinks throughout the afternoon and into the evening when we’ll also light up the fire pit.
