Hello All

Well for most grades the winter tennis season has drawn to a close ……. Well almost!

Girls Grade 2 and Mixed Grade 20 are both 6 team grades so have their final match of the regular season this weekend with their finals starting on 21st August.

Finals matches

Grade 9 Boys will play Grovedale at Drysdale this Saturday. And Grade 14 Boys will play Torquay at Grovedale. Good luck to both grades.

Finals umpiring

Finals umpiring should be no surprise to anyone. As everybody knows, unless your child’s team make the grand final, their grade will be rostered on to umpire during the finals. You will only be asked to umpire once during the finals so please make yourself available when asked. Please avoid making excuses as all that happens is that it gets left to too few which is not fair nor in keeping with the expectations of the Hamlyn Park Tennis Club. The team members should be encouraged to come along and act as linesmen.

The rostered umpiring this week is:

Grade 7 umpiring the match between Drysdale & Newcomb at Moolap. And Grade 18 umpiring the match between Highton & Wandana Heights White at our home courts at Hamlyn Park.

I can’t be entirely certain but it’s likely that both Grade 3 boys and Grade 20 mixed will be rostered on for umpiring next weekend – the 21st of August.

AGM next Tuesday

Just a reminder that the club AGM is on next Tuesday at which a new junior committee will be endorsed as will a new junior co-ordinator.  I urge you to come along and be involved in the club and would encourage any one willing to join the junior committee. Many hands make light work!

Summer Tennis for Juniors

Whilst winter comp is not yet finished, we need to submit the teams for the summer comp in only a couple of weeks. If your child intends playing the summer competition and you haven’t already added their name to the list on the notice board, can you please respond by return email. Even if they’re not going to play I’d appreciate an email as it will save the new junior committee from having to chase you up by phone call. There’s a break of about a month before the summer comp starts about the beginning of October.

Good luck to all junior teams competing.
