Hello club members,
Well, thanks for your robust response to membership renewals – we’re well on the way to a record for our little club. Our major drawcard is definitely our well-organised comps and low-pressure vibe. If you are yet to renew, you’ll be happy to hear our rates remain the same at single $120 & family $190.
Due to the recent Lockdown & restrictions still applying to tennis, our AGM is re-scheduled to Tuesday 7 Sept from 5.30pm
You’re invited for social tennis & drinks around our AGM on Tuesday 17 August, 2021. Come along for a social comp & hit anytime from 4.30pm, or after the AGM (5.30-6.30pm). Our AGM’s format is lively & short (ends 6.30pm) and you’re not a moving target just by turning up. Sure, we need 2-3 committee – first & foremost the club needs a Secretary to look after admin, Second: A President to look after facilities management. It’s a stellar time for you to jump onto committee, with a club in great shape & I have covered both roles over 10 years, they are not onerous. We see our AGM as a great chance for a competitive hit & catch up with other players too – you can be as involved (or not) as you want. We look forward to seeing you there, we’ll also have a great prize or two up for grabs.
A few other things to mention along with the AGM:
|Check in Qld App – unless you’ve crawled out from under a rock I’m sure you are all aware of what you need to do as you enter the Club, just as you do for just about anywhere these days.|
|The Community House next door is part of a $10 grand investment into Rufous Street precinct, including greenspace & winding footpaths to come. For more info see council’s website. |

Adios. After a great decade as club president, I wrap it up at our AGM. It’s been an honour to serve the club & enjoy the connections with you all over the last 10 years. The key challenge for our 40-year-old facility is upgrades, something I set out to do at the outset: I’m very proud of the fact that I’ve driven much-these needed improvements at no next-to-no-cost to the club thanks to grant success & free labour. A new roof over seating, a Defib, fence-screening, new toilets, new court lights, new court fences, new power box, new retaining walls and built-in seating, updated signage, Clubhouse painted, water meter/water line moved within club grounds. Around $200,000 of improvements at a cost of around $5,000 to the club.
There’s no doubt this club’s success is down to a combo of our court manager working seamlessly with committee & I’m very proud of the way Andrew & I have teamed up over 10 years. A big thank you to him.
I’m confident this club will always will extend a warm and welcoming vibe to all who come here.
See you on court soon, Kim (Club President)
