All court hire to the general public is naturally picking up again now that the warmer weather is here.
One group in particular certainly took advantage of this and booked a few courts at our complex last week, to have a social hit.
They were a group of Duntryleague golfers, who decided to put down their sticks for a day and pick up their racquets for a change to their regular routine.
It became natural for organiser Geoff, who said he hadn't played tennis for 20 years, with everything flooding back as he hit the court. After their hit they sat and enjoyed the ambiance of our backyard.
They were very warmly welcomed by our Club and said they'd be back again.
So if you enjoy a game of tennis why not organise a group of family, friends, sport or work colleagues for a social game? Court hire is very reasonable, as well as the barbeque hire. For all court bookings, please phone the clubhouse on 6362 8020.
The Spring Night Comp on Wednesdays is attracting more players now, who are enjoying the milder nights. Everyone who came this week had some great tennis as well as plenty of laughs.
First place went to yours truly, with a total of 22 games/three sets. So very close behind, for equal second were Col Parsons and Elizabeth Grady both finishing on 21/three and in their shadow was Anthony Miklich on 20 games/three sets. So a very close scoring night all round.
The 'Turn Up' Junior Comp this Tuesday continues to attract players. The kids are really enjoying it, and it is fantastic to witness them on the courts. For any parent who feels their child may like to participate in this friendly comp, please phone the clubhouse to register. All they need is to be able to serve and score.
