AGM/Social comp Tues 7 Sept

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)
