You can contact Bob on 40177271 . A big thank you to all my casual and regular hirers, I will miss you all.

The month of April saw the court booked 37 times, which considering the rainfall was very good. Raw Courts have re-surfaced the court at a cost of $660 which will help keep the surface protected.

A general meeting is to be held on Friday 11th May at 6.30 at the hall to discuss the extension to the practice wall area. Hope to see you all there.

If you are considering joining the tennis club, now is the time. Get 7 weeks free for $20 single membership and $40 for families per year.

Commencing Saturday the 17th March we will be changing back to 9am start for both Saturday and Monday social tennis.

The reason for this change is that there is still a lot of dew on the court and it will give a bit more time to dry out.
