Welcome to the 2020 season of tennis! It promises to be a busy time for all players with each associations’ season into the third week already. The heavy rain last week made us bless our courts as yet again we managed to get through matches where other clubs were forced to wash out. We even played social tennis on Saturday afternoon during the drizzle and the courts held up well. The dry weather over Christmas followed by the heavy rain has washed quite a lot of debris onto the property so we have planned a working Bee for Saturday the 14th March to tidy up the grounds.
We are delighted that our courts finally have some lovely new nets, thanks to a grant from Bendigo Bank. Dorothy Janky and one of her staff from Bendigo Bank visited the club yesterday to see the new nets, and to tour our facilities. Thanks to Mal McDonald for organizing the new nets, and for showing Dorothy around.

Greetings fellow tennis players! We are enjoying the Spring weather at last and the grounds are looking beautiful. Thanks to all the members who keep it tidy and lovely both inside and outside. The junior season of Summer tennis has just kicked off after a busy Winter competition with an information session held on 7th October to announce teams, educate and inform the new parents and players of the routine required for Junior Competition and collect Ball money.
What a weekend!! With a far from ideal weather forecast, all matches were completed with lots of new & old faces which saw the weekend played in good spirit with lots of laughs and great companionship from all. Highlights from the weekend included the once again wonderful selection of food on offering - sausage rolls & scones that remind you of the good old days. They don’t come much better!
Greetings all members, Hope you are all adapting to the wintery blast of May and June. It is astonishing how fast our tennis year has flown with most of the night tennis and mid-week competitions drawing to a close for this season. We are hopeful of some new flags to be added next week. Our Club Championships were run on June 1st and 2nd. Congratulations to all the finalists, with our standout Men’s Singles champion, Rod Beanland, and Women’s singles champion, Heather McMillan, taking home the trophies for 2019.
