AGM – 22 September 3pm
Hi all, we have now secured the AGM date for the tennis club. As this club belongs to all of us, we would love to see you demonstrate your support. At a minimum please ensure there is 1 rep from each comp team & regular social group, and a few junior parent reps.
All committee positions will be vacant, and we require at least a new treasurer for the next season, so please consider if you can help out with this, or even other ‘non exec’ roles ie, grant applications, Social media, competition support & even the monthly shopping will help.
Look forward to seeing you there.
And this News news news
A few things have been happening recently at our club behind the scenes, so here is an update for all our members:
A big thank you to Dave Robinson & working bee team he organized with the men’s comp players. They repaired, replaced & updated items around the courts, most significantly the shelters which are now safe & sturdy again.
Nets – the new nets have finally arrived, but an innovative ‘trimming’ of existing nets appears to have improved them. We’ll keep an eye on them and monitor for eventual replacement.
The new online membership process was positively utilized with only a few minor queries & teething issues. The administration actions for the exec are now far more streamlined and this new process makes a world of difference for us managing the club.
Junior comp season has a different cycle and renewal info will be sent out shortly. We have applied to be a provider for the NSW Active kids vouchers and hope for affirmation in the next few weeks. All going well, these will be able to be used for both junior membership &/ or lessons.
Unfortunately our grant application for court 3 resurfacing under the ‘my community grants’ was unsuccessful. There are another two grants open currently and we will keep on trying.
Clubhouse general housekeeping- a reminder to all users – comp , social & parent spectators to be mindful of keeping the clubhouse clean & today. We did receive a complaint recently which unfortunately requires this prompt. Please ensure the basics – put away your washing up, ensure the toilet area is clean, bins are emptied if over half full, wash & return soiled tea towels or tablecloths & make a note on the whiteboard or message the club if you notice something might need replacing. The committee appreciate all our users helping this way.
Lastly, the AGM date will be announced shortly, we would love as much input as possible and at minimum need 1 rep from each comp team.
Happy tennis everyone 🎾
