President: Peter Chappelow

Secretary: Susan Carter

Committee Member: Sandy Chappelow
Committee Member: Julie McGloin
Committee Member: Mandy Craig

A vote of thanks was made for the voluntary service put in over the past 12 months by the outgoing Committee, which I soundly endorse. Volunteers are the backbone of the community and provide many services and support which would simply not be available....

The recently completed tennis practice court and multi-use facility is already proving quite popular among both adults and kids. It is free to use and self-managed - that is, no booking is required.

Tennis Club President, Peter Chappelow said "This is another great addition to the Cove infrastructure and complements the Community Precinct project very well."

JUNE 2017

The good news is that the Multi Purpose Practice Court has been completed. David Read and his crew started work on 1 May and the slab (double in size) poured on 2 May. The basketball hoop was transferred to the western side of the slab to improve access and space for all. A great job by Dave and the boys, very much appreciated.

Olympic Fencing planned to start the chain link fence and roof on 22 May with completion on 23rd. All went to plan and the facility is ready...

The tennis club isn’t just about on-court play. We also like to get together socially for a pizza night at the community centre. At a general meeting on April 27 ( see minutes below ) the members decided that for the rest of the year it would be scheduled, when possible, for the first Saturday of the month, starting on May 6th. This was a great success. It also provided the opportunity for the club to hold another general meeting ( see minutes below ) to deal with several matters from the previous meeting. No decision has been made as...

After a few months in hibernation Satuday social tennis restarted on May 6. It currently runs from 8am to 10am but will move back to 9am to 11am as winter nears. The plan is to make tennis available each Saturday, depending on player interest.Tennis in the Cove is a very relaxed affair and caters mainly for those who would just like to play a bit of relaxed mixed doubles. Winning is definitely not the mainobjective. Rather it is a great way to get out in the fresh air and meet other residents. It is also very cheap with court hire...

November is an ideal time to join the North Arm Cove Tennis Club.  The weather is often perfect for tennis, not too hot and not too cold.  A family membership is only $40 and entitles the parent, the children, the grandchildren and partners to play for a court hire fee of only $4.00 an hour.  This has got to be the best deal from any tennis club in Australia. Why not join up so you're ready to play when the family visits over the holidays.

If you play tennis in the Cove, you are probably getting cheaper court hire fees than anywhere else in Australia. At the AGM on 6 August, the existing committee was returned for another year, and plans are underway for changes to the practice wall to make an even more useful free sporting facility.

You can read minutes of the AGM below.
