Adults from 12 - 3 pm. Social tennis - mixed doubles.
Sausage sizzle. Lots of family fun.
Spread the word.

Also for those who don't know Roger Knight retired as club president this year after many many years of great service to the club. Christian Nicholson has taken over as the new club president. But thank you Roger for doing such a good job and showing me the ropes.
Also, Julie Lichtwark retired as club secretary. Julie did a fantastic job for so many years and now we are left with an important position to fill. Alex and Kevin from the club committee are sharing the role in the interim but we are looking for someone keen to take on that role permanently. If you are interested let me know and I will send you a job description.
Our new club Captain is Simon Sherpa. Thank you Simon for taking on that role. The club needs people like you. Simon will be organizing interclub teams this year. Yes, there is still time to get your name down so do that soon.
We need ladies especially. Let us know. Let's get ready for summer!
