Dear members, 

Hope this finds you all well. 

This is to update you all on some of the upcoming events planned for the months to come, along with an update on where we are at with regards the courts upgrade: 

  1. Tiger Turf has given us a new tentative timeframe of end of June when they expect to upgrade courts 3-6. Their raw materials are expected to arrive by end of May and then they will get the turf ready for us. 
    We will keep you informed for when the courts will need to be uplifted as we receive a definite date from Tiger Turf. Thank you to all who have offered to help with this mammoth task. 
  2. Parent Child Tournament is rescheduled to this week Friday 27 May, 6pm start. Entry fee is $5 per person and please bring along a dessert to share, as pizzas will be provided very generously from Sal’s Pizza, Highland Park. 
  3. I am working on a Wine Tasting Evening with Kate Hunter from Te Mata Estate on Fri 17 June, 6:30-8pm. More info to follow shortly. 
  4. Bar pricing have been increased, thank you for your understanding. This is the first price increase in more than 6 years. Thank you for all the ongoing support offered to the club bar by our very loyal members/patrons. 
  5. Lastly, Love Tennis is back for 2022 on Sun 11 Sept, 2022, 10am-4pm. Please keep this date free as this will coincide with the start to the new Season on 2022-23.  

Hope to see you all at the courts, the crisp winter weather makes it great playing conditions for tennis (as long as it’s not bucketing down!!) All the club sessions for Twilight, Midweek Ladies on Wed mornings/Midweek Men on Wed afternoons, Social Wed evenings and Vet mornings have all resumed for term 2. 

We are currently promoting the Mid-Season New members subscriptions for 2022-23 season. Please encourage family and friends to take up this brilliant offer, as this is valid till Sept 2023. Please get in touch with me for membership options. 

Best Wishes,
