The 2014 outdoor tennis season is approaching. After this year’s very long winter, I'm sure many of you are looking forward to getting outdoors and playing in the warmer weather ahead.
Welcome back to all of our returning members. A special welcome too to those new members who have chosen to join Applewood. Please make yourselves at home as soon as you can and get involved in some of our many friendly club activities.
There are many tennis activities for all levels and players including: adult friendlies, competitive leagues, house leagues, round robins, junior programs and tournaments. Socials will again be offered in the 2014 season and we want to make those a really special time. Check the Calendar of Events on the back of this letter for dates and times.
Remember to thank all our Executive Committee members. We value the vital contributions made by them, as well as all of the many members who volunteer their time and energy, and greatly appreciate their continuing support. We are still looking for two Auditors, a Treasurer and someone to co-ordinate the tournaments. For those of you who can volunteer some of your time this season, please contact one of the Executive Committee.
This will, I’m sure, be another enjoyable year. We welcome your comments or suggestions, and hope that several members will come forward to help the Executive with these challenges.
Early registration will be at the clubhouse on Saturday April 26th (due to Easter falling on 19th) from 11am to 2pm. On Sunday May 4th you can also register during Opening Day from 11 am to 2:00 pm, attend the Spring General Meeting from 2 to 2:30 pm, and play in the round robin from 2:30 to 4:30 pm. Alternatively, you can drop by clubhouse anytime an Executive Committee member or an attendant is on duty and sign up. Membership fees are $90 per Adult, $55 per Junior and $180 per Family (HST included).
Nets and Screens day is Saturday April 12th from 11am to 2 pm and we’d really appreciate the help of any members who can come out and help get the courts ready for play. Bring a ladder, some gloves and some willing hands. We’ll have pizza available for lunch.
Looking forward to seeing you on the courts.
Blair Seckington, 2014 President
