In preparation for the tournament we would appreciate your help with any of the following:

  • We will be having a Working Bee on Friday 13th November from 9.30am to tidy up the club both indoors and outdoors.
  • Helping out in the kitchen on Saturday and/or Sunday.
  • Provision of baking including uncut slices.
  • Donations for the raffle prizes.
  • If you are happy to be called up as a reserve should we have injuries or partners required (please contact Kathy Dwyer). There will be social tennis on Friday afternoon from 1.00pm instead of Saturday afternoon. For further information please contact Kathy Dwyer: 021 821 794 Bar Over the last few years Mark Wells has taken the overall responsibility for our club bar. During this time Mark has capably lead us through developing the procedures necessary for us to maintain our bar licence and meet the growing compliance needs of the Christchurch City Council. This has involved much paperwork and time for Mark to ensure our bar runs professionally. Mark is now stepping down from this role. We hopefully will still see him serving on the bar as rostered until the end of the year and on the court as his injuries allow. On behalf of the club Mark I thank you for all the time you have gifted to us and for the systems you have created that will enable our bar staff to continue to work effectively. Simon Bulman is taking on this responsibility. Thanks Simon. Thanks also to the members who volunteer on the bar. It is a commitment and very much appreciated.

Wednesday Nights

Club Uniforms your orders are now in the clubrooms for you to pick up.
It is so good seeing our players represent us wearing the club colours.

I understand there are members who missed this order. There will be another opportunity late in the year.

The committee is looking for a member prepared to take on the overall responsibility for our Wednesday night social play.
This person would ensure those rostered on the Board, bar and BBQ are notified / reminded and ready to go. Depending on those rostered, it may involve the opening and closing of the clubrooms. It would be appreciated if this person could also share the responsibility of organising the Board and BBQ roster and the BBQ food. Please contact Noelene if you can assist.

Anytime Fitness at 240 Colombo St have generously offered the Club a couple of 6 month memberships.

Anytime Fitness owner Matty Lovell supports several local sports clubs and we appreciate his commitment to the community.

The 6 month memberships at the gym are valued at over $500.

If you are interested please put your offer in an email to the club at

We will announce the winners at the Show Weekend Tournament
