Squash and Tennis Leagues

Just a quick reminder about the Squash Leagues, and a call for interested players for a Tennis League!

Squash: due to the level of interest in the Squash Leagues I'll be running these right through summer, so if you would like to join in the fun, please contact Sophie in the office - ASAP if you'd like to be in the Oct/Nov league!

Tennis: We will hopefully start these in the New Year so flick me an email to let me know if you're keen.

If you'd like more information on the Leagues and how they run just reply email to me, Sophie, and I'll give you the run down.

Court Bookings and Guests

Apart from a few power-cables-with-legs and the odd child fiddling with the settings and causing me to swear at the iPads, the booking systems seem to be going well so far! Just a reminder on a few points:

  • Please if you can’t make your court booking then delete it so someone else can use it. 
  • Please don’t use the “Guest” booking unless it is genuine (ie select your playing partner in the drop down box on the screen). We expect a $10 guest fee with every one of the guest bookings. 
  • Please ensure if you are playing with a non member that the $10 guest fee is paid. Please don’t be offended if you are asked if you are a member or not. It’s hard for us to know everyone!
  • Envelopes for your guest fees are outside the Club Office or by the squash lights downstairs. Please take an envelope, place $10 inside and slip it under the office door or through the slot downstairs BEFORE you play.
  • We will be more active in checking that payments are being received so we appreciate your support with this.

As per usual, I am very receptive to suggestions and complaints, if you stay silent about an issue it won't go away, if you tell me it probably will go away or at least I can explain it. 

Next DnA's...

Midweek DnA Wednesday 22nd @ 10am

Sunday DnA Sunday 19th @ 4pm

Wedding Bells

Two of Herne Bay Racket's most beloved members have tied the knot! AJ Taylor swept Aroha Willis off her feet at a beautiful ceremony last weekend. The gorgeous couple have said their I Do's and will be sporting shiny new rings when they take the courts after their honeymoon!

Congrats you two, everyone from the Club wishes you a long and beautiful life together and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Fancy some tennis in the tropics?

Norfolk Island is hosting the 25th Veteran's Tennis Championships in April 2015. Categories are 40's, 50's, 60's and 70+'s, with Men's, Ladies' and Mixed Doubles entries.

For more details visit the tennis board at the top of the stairs, or reply to this email and I can send you the tournament brochure. 

Reminders: 

Mercy Hospice Annual Tennis Tournament

Reminder: Members are warmly invited to register for this event, to be held (partly) at our very own Club! 7th Nov, more details reply email and I will send you the brochure/entry form.

Bar Volunteers needed

We still desperately need 2 more volunteers on the bar. The commitment is only one night per month and if you pair up with someone it's only every second month!

This is a great way to 'do your part' for the Club like so many others have before you. If we don't have volunteers the bar is un-manned and this can be a problem when we have visiting teams and events on at the Club, not to mention thirsty members who need a drink!

No experience necessary and all training is provided. Contact Sophie in the office if interested.
