I am pleased to report the tennis club has secured lease approval to build our two new courts which has been a two year process!
A gap will be between the two sets of courts to work around an historic right of way that needs to be kept free. This area will be sealed, and fenced off at both ends, and will make for a great viewing area between both sets of courts. Our old courts 8 and 9 will be taken over by the Richmond Working Men's Club cricket section as a training and storage area once our new courts are built.
Work stated on Tuesday 25 October and the base is expected to be complete by Xmas. The courts then then need to sit for 3-4 weeks to allow the asphalt to dry before the top coat (synpave) is applied. The courts should be in use by the nend of January 2017
Unfortunately this application did not include the lighting approval, so this is being sought now and all going well will come through during this season. Lighting poles will be installed as part of this new court construction as we don't foresee any issues getting this approval for floodlights to be installed on all four hardcourts.
2016 Parent/Child Tournament
Sunday 20 November 2016 - 9am start
The Club’s Annual Parent/Child Tournament will be held on Sunday 20 November 2016 starting at 9am.
This tournament has become one of the season’s highlights and we hope to see a number of new entrants again this season. As with last season, the intention is to have two sections –
(1) For juniors involved in Interclub teams
(2) For those juniors receiving Saturday morning coaching. This means that we will have even competition and learner players are not subjected to play beyond their current level.
All interested players should place their names on the appropriate sheet on the junior noticeboard. Parents do not have to be members to be eligible to play so come along for a fun morning of tennis. All parents are requested to wear appropriate sports footwear and if they are in need of a racquet the Club has some for use on the day. One child per parent.
