Reminder about light tokens

Reminder to club members that the court lights operate on a token system.

Members wishing to play tennis in the evening and use the lights must first purchase light tokens.

The light  tokens may be purchased from several committee members whose details have been emailed to club members on 1 March 2017. Please refer to your email from the club secretary for the contact numbers of committee members who hold light tokens for sale.

Cost is $12 per token. Tokens provide 1 hour of light.

Members are recommended to pre-purchase adequate tokens to last over the school holidays as committee members may not always be contactableover holiday periods.

Weekly update from our club president.

Hi everyone

 

  • Some big news this week…. It has been announced that our very own Margaret Olive Harris (club coach extraordinaire) has been ranked the number 1 tennis player in Australia in her age group! This ranking also puts her at number 10 in the world, which we think is pretty amazing. Congratulations Margaret!!

 

  • Congratulations to the four Williamstown teams that won their semi-finals last weekend.

o   Alex Diederich/James Lewis/Ben Farrugia section  6 Saturday -won semi final Senior Pennant.

o   Damian Redenbach/Will Penfold/Max Harrison-Shore section 2 Sunday won semi final Junior Mixed.

o   Sam Penfold/Liam Murray/Adam McDonald  section 1 Sunday won semi final Junior Mixed.

o   Will Harris/Adam Baker/Andy Diederich section 1 Sunday won semi final Junior Mixed.

A great result … the last two teams mentioned above will play against each other in a derby grand final so we are guaranteed a flag! Good luck to all of the teams in a completely non-biased club president way. J

 

  • Social tennis keeps going from strength to strength with a great turn out again last week. Only this week and next week before we have a break for school holidays. 7pm Thursdays … bring your friends! Non members $10, members, free.
