Upgrade of Courts 1 and 2

Work has begun on the upgrade of courts 1 and 2. There was a well attended working bee on the 10th of November to lay out the steel reinforcement mesh for the underlying concrete base.

They are expected to be completed before the autumn competition season start.

Lifetime Memberships

The club is pleased to announce the awarding of Lifetime Memberships to Jo Marshall, Peter Sardi and Esko Kankaanpaa.

Peter Sardi and Esko Kankaanpaa

Without the combined contribution from Peter and Esko, we would not have the facilities we have today.
Not only have these 2 members been instrumental with rebuilding the courts but also with the shaded area in front of court 2 and the concreted area behind court 1.

Peter has also been the Vice President for many years and is always willing to help out when needed.
