Please keep Sunday afternoon December 4 free, or cancel what you have already, as we are organising a Christmas break up with a fast 4 tennis competition thrown in. We will have hot shot and tennis activities for the younger kids and Santa will visit the club and hand out presents to the younger kids. We are obviously hoping that the parents will provide the presents, with nothing over $20, and Santa can hand them out to the child which will be fun for them. No child will miss out however.
The fast four competition will be quick moving with a $5.00 entry fee per doubles team paid prior to the day. We are hope to get a number of family entries and teams will be handicapped fairly based on past results. We will do everything to make it as even as possible. Prizes will be on offer to the place getters at the end of the day.
There will also be a christmas raffle with a number of prizes on offer.
Some Food/BBQ and drink will be provided although we encourage people to bring a plate of food/snacks etc.
This event will have a genuine family atmosphere but the big hitters are also welcome to take on the fast 4.
We will provide entry forms for the Fast 4 and more details within the next week or so, but please support your local tennis club and have some fun.

Hi Tuesday swingers
The guru spoke to me about how all levels of tennis at the club had improved except for the flag ship Tuesday night comp. I said “Guru you are too harsh, while most I admit have gone backwards there are some shining lights” that I will profile in coming weeks. At least for a couple of the teams it is simply impossible to go backwards and that’s fantastic news for Bob and Rod Smith.
Rafa appears to have taken his form to another level, if that is possible, and is taking no prisoners but has he ever? The team is now ably lead by Elissa who is keeping a firm rein on him and the volatile Ged.
All the Presidents men is also under new management and Glenn Butcher is a tough taskmaster who records everything. Where have I heard that before. Can be dangerous Glenn.
For Andrew Verrall and his cohort Mary the premiership hangover has led to severe migraine that is debilitating on court. I feel their pain.
For Kerry the weight of captaincy is a heavy burden. To follow in the footsteps of Adam Palmer and maintain a running commentary is threatening to derail her tennis. For some people it is hard to do 2 things at once. I feel her pain too.
Please see the attached ladder after 2 weeks which is just too early to frame a market. Coby and Aya looked dangerous as they overcome the boy wonder and Margaret. Congratulations to Brad Bellot on his return to top flight tennis even if he is forced by his daughter to quickly go into retirement.
Lets hope I come to feel Rafa’s pain in the weeks ahead, as well as the Hawks of course.
See you Tuesday night
Looking after our club
