Today we farewelled Frank Secomb, our first life member with his wife Betty. Frank had settled in Heathmont after the second world war and had a significant influence on the development of Heathmont such as forming our tennis club (from Heathmont Methodist TC), the introduction of the Heathmont Kindergarten/Hall in Viviani Cres, the development of a general store on the corner of Canterbury Road and Heathmont Road - all the start of Heathmont Village.

Well done to Hana, Nicholas, Matthew, Charlie, Harvey, Alynna, Raymond and Milo!! Congrats also to our four Open Rubbers teams who all very narrowly lost in the semi’s with a bit of controversy thrown in for good measure. Well done Seamus, Parth, Tim, Igor, Freya, Will, Antony, Melrain, Jessica and Jaden.
We are super proud of our Sunday juniors who both won their final today! JDC1 green ball Not a surprise from the JDC green ball kids who went in with a team percentage of 465 for the season! Ben was there to officiate with presentations- thanks Ben 😎 I love the way the kids have written up their own names on the banner!! Haha! We can say we have their first autographs if any of them become stars in the future!
🎾 Greetings Tennis Families. 🎾 We are fast approaching the end of the 21/22 Summer Season! Congrats to a number of our teams who have made finals, and well done to all teams for putting in a great season under tricky circumstances juggling COVID parameters. (You’ll be able to tell your grandchildren in years to come about Covid Washouts!!) WINTER 2022 SEASON It is also time for us to get organised for the 2022 Winter Season.
President’s Report A warm welcome to all at Parker Reserve TC. A particular welcome to all new members. It is great to be back to competition tennis after such a long break. With the return to competition comes responsibilities to the Club. Remember to bag courts after play and to leave the club house tidy. Your committee works hard to provide a great facility for you so please ensure you play your part in keeping it great.
We’re so excited to say we’re able to open up a little further. As per directions from the State Government and Tennis Victoria, tennis as a community sport can return for the minimum number required. That means players and/or coaches only, no spectators and no competition just yet. This will mean community social tennis can return but please remember we still need to socially distance with masks if not on court and please always check in with the QR codes whenever at the club.
We have some good news, we are back open for play. Coaching and organised member play can resume, however competition will come at a later date, stay tuned for these details. In order to re-open in a Covid safe way, there are some restrictions that will need to be followed. These restrictions are as per Tennis Victoria and the Government and are outlined below. Singles play for two people can return regardless of vaccination status.
