On a lovely morning last Sunday we had some very successful Club Championship events.
Congratulations to all that participated, gave their best and supported the players that made it through to play in the finals. Thank you to all those that helped out along the way also, it really made a difference and allowed the competitions to be run, won and done in record time.
In addition to the competition the Club also made presentations to some players that have consistently represented themselves and the Club in an outstanding manner. Congratulations to all.

Welcome back to the second half of the year for tennis. As a club we pay for our courts to be groomed once a week and clubrooms cleaned once a week. However it is up to ALL club members to maintain both courts and rooms to this standard. As an example today (Monday) I collected one chair and three yellow line brooms from outside. All these items are kept in the clubhouse so can everyone make an effort to look after Heatherdale’s equipment. The committee would like to welcome Neale Tucker as Vice President and Paul Telford to the General Committee. The next year will be very busy with a new lease being negotiated with Whitehorse Council and funding to be sourced for resurfacing of all 8 courts.

2016 Australian Open Tickets
There is no discount on tickets booked through a Club. Tickets are now available online. Just Google “Australian Open Tickets 2016”. E.g. viagogo lists various ticket prices.
The usual reminder regarding court care – always bag after play (from side to side well outside the lines to make sure sand doesn’t accumulate between courts and at the ends, or if sand has built up under the nets, from end to end) – hang up brooms and baggers and make sure gates are locked – also if you have had access to the clubrooms and are the last to leave, make sure all lights are off, the alarm is re-set and all doors locked – including the sliding doors at the far end.
Please Note: In order to make courts 1 & 2 last as long as possible, they should not be used unless no other courts are available (this applies to both social and competition use).
Of the three teams contesting the Winter ERT Season only one is currently in the four with five matches remaining.
If you have not paid your ball money for this season please do so ASAP.
If anybody new wants to play in the coming Summer Season which commences on Saturday October 10th please email me with your details.

We are entering the home straight for the Winter Season and a number of our Junior sides are looking secure in the four with a number of others right in the mix subject to producing some good performances over the final 5 rounds.
Grading for the Winter Season was an interesting exercise with ERT in its wisdom providing some of our teams with considerable challenges. All players will be better for the experience though.
Although we are shivering through matches at the minute, we need to turn our attention to the Summer Season for 2015-16 shortly as teams need to be finalised by the end of August. I will send a notice out by early August regarding this.
