July 2018 Club Newsletter

The 2017-18 Season is almost coming to an end, and winter almost halfway through. We can look forward to the starting of the new Season of 2018-19 very shortly.

Wimbledon has been a treat to watch, with Serena Williams coming so close to winning the Title once again. But in saying that Angelique Kerber and Novak Djokovic have well deserved their victory.

Thank you to all the members who came along and helped out in the Working Bee, the Club looks spotless and ready to take on the new Season.

Members from Howick, Cockle Bay, Pakuranga, surrounding clubs and friends attended our Charity Day Tennis Tournament, Silent Auction and lunch.
