Club Update - November 12

Share this

Real up and down weather as of late. Beautiful through the majority of the week and then rain, wind and wild on Saturdays just in time for interclub (Grrrrr!)  The prospects of more reschedules are high for this weekend so please make sure you are using the court booking sheet when planning. This time of year there is high demand on courts after work.

 

Community Play (Give tennis a go day)

 

Community Play or "Give tennis a go day" is scheduled to start this Sunday 14th November at 1-3pm. This will run for 6 weekends, each Sunday at 1pm through to Sunday 19th December. (Post Christmas dates to be confirmed early in the new year).

If the weather is looking dodgy please check our website home page for cancellation announcements on Sunday morning.

A big thanks to Mana Toyoda will be helping the club coordinate Community Play. The session is an open session for the community to come down and give tennis a go. Bring all the kids and jump on a court! When more experienced club members are in attendance we will look to run ad-hoc fun games and activities for people to participate in. This is not a coaching session and kids will need to be supervised. manatoyoda@gmail.com 

The idea is that parents and kids are enjoying the time with each other and their friends. 

The session is free for current members. For non members please please head along to the membership page on our website to sign up

 

 

Club Fundraising and Social Event (Pub quiz)

 

Mark down Wednesday 24th in your calendar for a fun and social get together. Events will kick off at 7pm with drinks and nibbles. Social tennis night is on Wednesdays so at about 8pm once they have come upstairs we will get the pub quiz underway. This is a great way to meet new club members and have a bit of fun.

$20 cover charge - please head to our membership page to pre-purchase your tickets. (This includes entry to the quiz and 2x drinks tokens at the bar).

Interclub

 

We are now into our fourth week of interclub. Most of our teams feature mid pack to top half of the points tally. A few highlights being Prem 1 Men remaining unbeaten and sitting top of the table. Prem 1 Women won their first tie in the top flight which is a great achievement after receiving promotion into the grade. Welcome to all new players playing their first games for the club. 

Junior interclub is ticking along niocely and great to see busy courts on Sunday mornings.

Shout out to Sean Fennasy and David King who have been assisting with training plans and helping with team coordination respectively. Awesome stuff guys! Your work doesn't go unnoticed.

 

 

High Performance

 

In the high performance space, fresh from making his MTC debut, Whangarei based Daniel Hammond (17) won the singles championship of the J5 ITF junior event in Christchurch. Daniel also reached the doubles final teaming up with Seatoun native Zeno Varohas-Poole, unfortunately they went down 7/6 7/6. Dan is a classy lefthander who we look forward to representing MTC at the highest level. Congratulations Daniel on the Championship - amazing result.

 

 

Schools

 

Scots College held their annual fixture between Wellesley College yesterday. Lots of players and smiling faces. Both schools splitting the results amongst the A & B teams!

 

 

Cheers
