The Committee is asking for Members to help at the Club on Sunday. There is a bit of gardening to be done and tree branches to be removed to make way for some improvements at the rear of the Club House.
Any help from 1:30pm this Sunday would be greatly appreciated. For more information or to let us know you’re coming, please send the Club an Email.
The Lights at the Club were fixed over the weekend and Members are welcome to use the Lights again.
The Lights on Court 1 at the Club are in need of repair and will be unavailable for Night Tennis for the next few days.
The Committee asks that Members do not turn on the Lights on Court 1 until further notice.
Congratulations to the Club’s C Special 4 Unisex team who won their Semi Final on Saturday. The Team, consisting of Callum Brown, Campbell Goring, Matthew Pesavento, Jared Gaylor, Nikola Savic and Adele Adams defeated West Brunswick at Riverside.
The Team now play Buckley Park at West Brunswick in the Grand Final this Saturday. We wish the Team luck in their Grand Final.
Congratulations to the Club’s B Grade 1 Ladies team who recently won their Grand Final. The Team, consisting of Ashely Mann, Vicki Cohen, Jan Fielding and Karen Relf who played on the night and Annette Mann, Renee McCallum and Annette Plummer who played throughout the season defeated Keilor at Buckley Park 30 games to 22.
The match started off evenly, with Doutta Galla winning the first set 6-2, and losing the second set 3-6. The third and fourth sets were similar, with Doutta Galla having a great third set winning it 6-1 but losing the forth 3-6. The Team then held on to win the last two sets 6-2 and 6-5.
The Committee congratulates the entire Team and thanks all Players for a great season.

Two of the Club’s Ladies Night Teams played in Semi Finals last Tuesday night with one of the two moving on to the Grand Final this Tuesday night. The Club’s Saturday Afternoon Open Singles / Doubles A Grade Team also played in a Semi Final recently and were unfortunately defeated as well.
The B Grade 1 Ladies Team defeated Taylor’s Lakes quite convincingly 35 to 9. Ashely Mann, Vicki Cohen, Jan Fielding and Karen Relf played on the night and the Team will play Keilor at Buckley Park this Tuesday.
Unfortunately the C Special 1 Ladies Team were defeated by Merlynston by two games, 24 to 26. Sue Duras, Marion Wensor, Claire Mugavin and Maree Robertson played on the night and interestingly Doutta Galla didn’t play Merlynston during the season due to a forfeit and a washout.
The A Grade Saturday Afternoon Team, consisting of Warren Peters, Ben White and Michael Mann, were defeated by Coburg by 20 games who were too strong on the day.
The Committee wishes to thank all finalists for their efforts and wishes the B Grade 1 team luck for their Grand Final.
