HI MEMBERS,

 

JUST A QUICK UPDATE ON EVERYTHING GOING ON AT THE CLUB & A BIG WELCOME TO NEW MEMBERS JOINING FOR THE FIRST TIME, WE TRUST YOUR TIME AT THE CLUB IS ENJOYABLE!

MEMBERSHIP UPDATE

MEMBERSHIP NOW STANDS AT 120, INCLUDING 7 LIFE MEMBERS. THIS IS THE LARGEST NUMBER OF MEMBERS WE HAVE HAD IN A LONG TIME, GOING BACK AROUND 30 YEARS WHEN SATURDAY COMP PLAYERS HAD TO USE KILLARNEY HEIGHTS TENNIS COURTS (NOW A DAYCARE!) AS ALL 6 COURTS WERE IN USE!

SOCIAL TENNIS IS GOING STRONG WITH ALL AVAILABLE COURTS IN USE DURING SOCIAL TIME

COMETITION TEAMS ARE PERFORMING WELL IN BOTH THE MONDAY NIGHT LADIES, MONDAY NIGHT MIXED AND THE WEDNESDAY NIGHT MENS DIVISIONS.

INTERCLUB CHALLENGE:

OUR VISIT TO BELROSE TC WAS A VERY ENJOYABLE AFTERNOON. BELROSE WON THE DAY WITH SEVERAL CLOSE SETS GOING THEIR WAY (CONGRATULATIONS BELROSE!). FORESTVILLE WERE THE PREVIOUS TROPHY HOLDERS AS WE WON THE LAST CHALLENGE IN 2020. THE NEXT MATCH IS SCHEDULED FOR SEPTEMBER! TIME TO START PRACTICING!

MANAGERS CORNER:

THE TENNIS CENTRE CONTINUES TO BE MANAGED WELL BY TIM BIGG AND HIS TEAM. CONGRATULATIONS TO TIM AND JULES ON THE BIRTH OF THEIR THIRD DAUGHTER, RAFFAELLA. THEY RUN RED, ORANGE, GREEN AND YELLOW BALL JUNIOR CLASSES ALONG WITH ADULT COACHING GROUPS AND PRIVATE LESSONS. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A TUNE UP TO YOUR GAME CONTACT THE TEAM ON 9975 5189. THE PRO SHOP IS FULLY STOCKED WITH RACQUETS, BALLS, GRIPS, HATS, DAMPENERS, FOOD AND DRINKS ETC, ALL AT A VERY REASONABLE COST.

MAINTENANCE & REFURBISHMENTS:

WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR ASSISTANCE FROM THE NORTHERN BEACHES COUNCIL TO ASSIST WITH FUNDING OF THE OUTSIDE TOILET WHEN THE CLUBHOUSE IS LOCKED, THIS IS AN OPENING REQUEST DATE OF ROUGHLY 2 YEARS.

CLUBHOUSE GROUND AND SURROUNDS HAVE BEEN PEST AND WEED SPRAYED OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS TO KEEP SPIDERS AWAY FROM CHAIRS/CABANAS AND WEEDS OFF THE COURTS!

PLANS FOR A REFIT OF THE OUTDATED CLUBHOUSE HAVE BEEN PROVIDED TO THE COMMITTEE BY BOB KLEINKOPF, ROD PASCOE AND INPUT FROM MIKE MOULDS, THANKS FOR YOUR HELP. IF THE CLUBHOUSE IS RECONFIGURED THE TOOL SHED WILL BE MOVED TO OPEN UP ROOM FOR THE PROSHOP AND IN TURN WILL OPEN UP THE ENTIRE CLUBHOUSE FOR EXTRA USE (TABLE TENNIS CLUB, YOGA, WET WEATHER PROGRAMS ETC).
