MARCH 2023

Hi TKHP tennis players

March is always a very busy month for tennis activities, and it has been wonderful to see the courts well used.   Should you wish to secure a court, a reminder that we have a fully functioning booking system (at no charge) on our website.  

We have had a timely reminder not to leave items visible in your car while parking in the adjacent car park.  Thieves brazenly strike in daylight hours, so something to keep in mind.

On a positive note: the social March BBQ on Wednesday night was worth the wait.  Big thanks to Mark, Linda and Leanne who helped with the food and everyone that helped clear up, especially Dan and Dazza.

Come Autumn it is time to rest the lawn and prepare it for the following Spring.  

Are you able to spare an hour or two on Sunday 2nd April to help with the work required on the grass rows?

Our lawn courts get damaged with play during the season and each year in autumn we need to give some love back to return them to prime condition for next season. We would love you to attend the clubhouse at 8:30 am so everything is ready to start at 9:00am.

If you haven't been to one of our working bees before, come along. Don't be shy. There are plenty of jobs for all. Shovels and wheelbarrows are useful, so please bring one along if you can.
We look forward to seeing you there.
