Congratulations to the December Affiliate of the Month, Yarrawonga Lawn Tennis Club.
The Yarrawonga Lawn Tennis Club along with the Moira Shire and Yarrawonga Mulwala Tourism stepped in at short notice to host Tennis Victoria’s Country Week in 2023 when floods affected the Shepparton courts. Hosting large grasscourt events comes naturally to the Yarrawonga team who also host Victoria’s largest Easter Tournament with 1200 plus players.
The Club also host Senior ITF and Junior UTR Events annually and have received a Tournament Recognition Award from the World Tennis Masters Tour for the Victorian Seniors Grass Court Championships. The tournament was recognized as achieving exemplary player satisfaction and tournament delivery.
On the week to week basis, it is pleasing for the club that membership numbers have been on the increase, recently reaching 500. The junior tennis program is the main source, with approximately 250 juniors registered for Saturday morning tennis including the Hot Shots program.
Strong relationships with schools, other organisations and business around town ensure that tennis is a part of life in Yarrawonga and a benefit to the club and community.
Congratulations Yarrawonga Lawn Tennis Club – keep up the great work.
