Hi everyone

What a glorious start to spring weatherwise!  Below is some information relating to the new season.

Courts Closed:  Unfortunately under Covid Level 3 our courts remain closed.  Hopefully we will move to Level 2 next week and be able to open them.  We are unable to provide the regular checks and monitoring which are required to open in Level 3.  We will be in touch with opening details.

Junior Coaching:  We hope to begin this early in term 4.  We aim to have eight lessons in term four and eight in term one as usual.  However should Covid rulings prevent this we will hold as many lessons as we are able to at an adjusted costing. 

Love Tennis Opening Days:  The 25/26 September opening weekend throughout the country has been cancelled. In order for the planned Love Tennis opening weekend to take place we need to be at Level 1.  The new scheduled date is Sunday 21 November, and hopefully we will have played a lot of tennis before that date!

Interclub:  Interclub is scheduled to start in the middle of October.  Russell will be contacting existing senior interclub players.  If you are keen to play interclub and haven't before please contact Russell on rdrew@xtra.co.nz. Dean will be contacting junior interclub players and his contact details are dean.fraser@otago.ac.nz

Senior Social:  Once we are permitted to we will return to social tennis at the Edgar Centre on Tuesdays at 6 pm and at the club on Saturdays at 1 pm.  After daylight saving starts on 26 September we will shift social tennis back to the club and it will be on Tuesdays at 6 pm and Sundays at 3 pm.  If there are enough people keen to play we will trial Thursdays at 6 pm as well.

The club is keen to recruit some new senior members - if you know of anyone keen to return to the game please encourage them to come along to one of our senior social sessions for a hit.  We will of course welcome new juniors to coaching too.   

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.

Thank you

Sarah
