Australian Open mixed doubles social event, Sunday, 3 February, 2–5pm

Get the budgie smugglers, singlets, thongs, and bush hats ready for our first Grand Slam–themed social tennis event of the year: HBPRC's Australian Open mixed doubles tournament on Sunday, 3 February, 2–5pm. 

The tournament will run a round-robin of mixed doubles with prizes for winners and best-dressed. So plan the appropriately themed Australian costume you will wear (the more outrageous the better your chance of winning a prize), and book your place in the draw now by emailing tennisvp@hernebayrackets.co.nz

Entry fee is $15, payable on the day, and BBQ food will be provided. Note Sunday club day will be truncated to a one-hour block 1–2pm on the day, but all are welcome to participate in the Aus Open event, just please register in advance so we can set up a draw.

Senior summer interclub resumes Saturday, 2 February

Any new members who want to play in the second half of the season (who haven't already done so) please email Simon at tennisvp@hernebayrackets.co.nz this week. Teams we can add players to are Open Presidents 1 and 3 (mixed and doubles comp), Open Men's 1 and 5.
Presidents comp restarts 2 February and Open grade singles teams restart 9 February. Captains will be in touch to organise rosters shortly. 
Good luck for second half of the season. 

Thursday club night & Sunday club day 

No excuses not to join us for some social and friendly match play on Thursday night from 6.30pm and/or Sunday afternoon from 1 to 3pm. New members welcome.

Juniors

Junior coaching clinics are running now. Contact club professional David Mustard for more info. Junior club night will resume at the start of term 1. We'll keep you posted on the exact date.

Court repairs

The turf repair on courts one and four have now been done and the tennis net replaced on court four. The turf patches will have more sand added over the next few weeks to help the surface settle. This will hopefully even out the pace between the sections - and the more they're played on the faster they will even out.
