Wet and cold weather is with us again but we are past the solstice so things must improve! Still, a few hardy souls have continued playing and find that they warm up and burn off a few winter calories in quick time.

The court area has been mowed and weeded and the court surface spryed for algae, which builds up in the winter months.

We are often asked by people who have never played tennis how they can start. Very simple - come along to one of our Saturday or Monday social tennis mornings (9-11 am), borrow...

As an incorporated entity the Club is required to hold at least three General Meetings per year, the next being scheduled for 1100 on Saturday 21 June, at the Community Centre outdoor area.

The Annual general meeting will be held on Saturday 12 July, with the usual rush to fill Committee positions expected! However, the Club does take time and money to function so any prospective committee members are most welcome to join us in running a great facility for the Cove and holiday visitors.

We have just received our insurance invoice from...

The good news this month is that the new bench table for the tennis shelter was installed by Council on 22 April and is exactly what we needed. GLC also removed one of the older tables, which was unsafe, and has dyna bolted the new one to terra firma so thievery will be a bit more difficult.

Court bookings have been well down due to both weather (April-May are often our wettest months due to the east coast lows and seasonal change) and the absence of some of our...

Saturday Member Social Tennis hours have now changed to 9am to 12noon. Monday Social Tennis hours remain the same. Due to low numbers recently it would be wise to contact the tennis phone on 0427276718 to ensure there will be enough players on Mondays if you want to play on that day.

The tennis court has proven to be a great asset for both residents and visitors over the holidays, with the great weather and new shade shelter. While December numbers were down, January was very busy, paricularly with visiting relatives and holiday makers, with the court fully booked on one day from 8am - 6pm.

Our Tennis Taster Day on 19 January was designed to introduce non-players and people who may have played at some time in their lives, to the game, with free racquets, balls and coaching from our regular players. Despite great weather, numbers were lower than expected,...

For bookings or questions on how to start or get a game please call 0427276718 between 0900-1700.

Another good month for tennis – the warm dry weather certainly makes for pleasant conditions, particularly around 8-10 am and 4-6pm when the sun is in the trees and the wind has backed off. Our “Opera House” shelter may not be an architectural gem but serves the purpose well!

Memberships continue to come in and Trish advises that we have over 20 members (single $20, family$40), which is 10% of the village population!

New Committee

A reshuffle of committee members at the AGM on 31 August saw Ken Duffey move to Vice President, with Peter Chappelow taking over as President. Ken was key to having our new weather shelter installed by Council at minimal cost to the Club. Kerrian Griffin stood down from the Treasurer position after keeping us in the black and out of trouble for 2012-13. Trish Peters takes over as Treasurer with Sandy Chappelow as Public Officer.Well done all and we hope that our next year is as good as the last.
