Club Championships 2018 March 2 - 25. Entries open 19 Feb, close 25 Feb: only via sheet on Club Noticeboard. Details
Thefts from Clubhouse: Last week we had a number of thefts from our Clubhouse. On Wednesday night a visiting player had two rackets stolen from his tennis bag and Thursday evening items were taken from the fridge and a visiting player's esky was taken. Please keep the front gate locked except during coaching and the start of competition and warn visiting players that belongings left in the clubhouse are not secure. Unfortunately this means having to take everything out on to the courtside to keep an eye on it. Please challenge and report anyone that does not look like a member or visiting player.
Membership enquiries: email Peter McCaw on firstname.lastname@example.org.
