Presidents Report

It has been an honor to serve the Clyde tennis club as President for the last twelve months and I would like to thank the executive committee for their assistance in running this fine club.

A special mention to Ian Gardiner (secretary) for his attendance at meetings and functions with the city of Casey plus his correspondence with the many organizations.

Another person I would like to thank is our Treasurer and maintenance man  Vaughan Smith for his Professionalism in keeping  our books and club appearances up to scratch.

The CTC committee would also like to thank Casey’s junior citizen of the year Ben Hill for his assistance and ongoing help with the City of Casey.

Peter Cox has taken on the difficult task as junior coordinator this season. With the help of our junior committee we have three teams in the BDTA competition .  All going well we hope to have a couple of teams playing finals.

Three senior teams were entered in the WDTA for the winter season with one team making the finals  The future looks very promising with the establishment of housing estates in our immediate area, so advertising is our priority within the next twelve months.


  •  A meeting with Geoff Ablett the Mayor of Casey was organized by Ben Hill earlier this year to map out CTC future development with the growth of our corridor at Clyde.
  •  A new deck in front of the clubrooms plus new doors for the toilets and clubroom was organized by council
  •  We have also applied and received two grants from the City of Casey one being for the top and bottom rails on courts one, two , three and four and the landscaping of the hill area beside courts three and four. We thank Bunnings for donating about forty plants for our project.
  •  A working bee was organized in July to clean our six courts, with the help of members this was achieved in just one weekend so a big thank you to all the attendees
  •  The CTC has obtained new T-shirts Thanks to (Joe Agius)for junior and senior players to purchase with our new logo printed on the front. I believe hoodies will be available in the near future.
  •  This year we updated our constitution and will be available for our member’s perusal on request.
  •  A business plan was updated by Vaughan Smith and sent to Tennis Australia as requested
  •  The retaining wall between courts one and two, plus three and four has been replaced by the City of Casey
  •  Finning’s Real Estate (John Tucker) has replaced our sign on the roundabout with our new logo (The Tagging was extra)
  •  A Bunnings BBQ has been organized for October 26th
  •  The City of Casey have allocated a generous amount of money for the extension and renovations of our clubrooms which will include the following:

A new entrance on the East side of our clubroom with an overhead canopy.

A new disabled toilet is to be built.

An office (for the president)

A store room

Air-conditioning and heating

Security system

BBQ area

Toilets will become internal with a wall enclosing it from the elements
