Club Night Kitchen

Come on down to Club Night this Thursday - Kendal Mustard will be in the kitchen cooking burgers and fries to order. On the menu are Cheese Burgers, Hamburgers (carb/gluten free options) and Fries... YUM!

David Mustard's very popular Tennis DnA will be on again on Court 1 from 6:30-7pm - the first 8 people to turn up will be able to play in this... get here early if you don't want to miss out!

Normal Club Night action on the other courts from 6:30 and on all Squash Courts from 7pm.

Happy Hour from 7-8pm. See you there - there's only 3 more Club Nights before we shut down for Christmas, so get your baubles on and head down to the Club!

Private Functions at the Club

Private Hireage is a great source of income for the Club and as such we do hire out to private hirers from time to time. Being Party season, we have a few functions coming up and ask that members please respect the privacy of these functions. We've tried to keep them to Friday and Saturday nights to avoid members' use of the courts and lounge so hopefully we don't offend any of our members! Here are the details:

  • Friday, 5th Dec: Corporate Hire, Club closed from 6:30pm
  • Thursday 11th Dec: Corporate Hire: Courts and Club closed from 2-6pm, shared use of lounge from 6
  • Friday 12th Dec: Private Hire of tennis courts from 3-6pm
  • Saturday 13th December: 30th Party, Club closed from 6:30pm
  • Thursday 18th December: Corporate HIre: Tennis courts closed from 3-6 (TBC)
  • Friday 19th December: Private Hire: Tennis courts closed from 2:30pm, Club Closed from 4pm

Xmas Shutdown / Manager on leave next week

Please note that the Club will shut down from Dec 20th to Jan 11th. You will still be able to access the Club with your swipe card but the bar will be closed, there will be no Club Nights and the Manager will not be here. If your membership expires in this time, you will need to renew before Dec 19th to ensure your card will work over the break (January reminders will be sent out shortly to ensure you have plenty of time to renew). Bar volunteers will be able to access the bar to serve drinks but it will be Eftpos only and our usual licensing conditions will be in place. 

Just to let you know I'm on leave and overseas from Dec 10-Dec15. If you need interclub balls for your Dec 13 matches you will need to collect these before the 10th. For any inquiries while I'm away please contact David Mustard on 021 476 606 or Gary Palmer on 021 949 772.

Caro Bowl Reserve Men

On Saturday the Caro Reserve men's team had a great result winning against Remuera 5 games to 1! It was pleasing to see our team of Brock Mustard, Macsen Sisam, Tony Cheetham and Lukasz Klobukowski all record singles wins. Great stuff guys!

If you'd like to check out their winning form, they're on home turn this Saturday from 12. Good Luck guys.

West End Visitors

As you all may have noticed from the flags flying around the streets of Herne Bay, the West End Cup is being held down the hill this weekend. As a result some of the West End members are unable to get on their own courts, so being the caring neighbours that we are, we've offered up our courts to their members (subject to availability!). So, you may see some people you don't know on court - don't panic, they are invited and welcome.

If you want to know more about the West End Cup and are interested in heading along, check the details out here: www.westendcup.co.nz 

Driveway Safety

Could all Club Members please be careful when entering the driveway and make sure that you reduce your speeds as soon as you've left the road? We have noticed some drivers coming down the driveway so quickly that it would cause serious injury or even death if they collided with a child running from the tennis courts or a park user exiting the park via our driveway. 

Please be careful, we want everyone to have a happy Christmas and be with their families safely.

Also please be careful when leaving the carpark and heading up the driveway, as there is a lot of corner-cutting that could cause collision with cars coming down the driveway. Keep left and give people space to enter. 

Upcoming Tennis DnAs and Blow Outs

Juniors this Friday at Club Night, 4:30-6:30, $20 includes a sausage sizzle and drink.

Midweek Christmas DnA – Wednesday 10th December 10am to 12 noon. $30pp. Includes bubbles, strawberries and a lite lunch. 

Senior Christmas  DnA – Sunday 14th December  4pm to 6.30pm. $30pp. Includes a Burger'n'Beverage.

Boxing Day Blow Out – Friday 26th December 10am to 12 noon, $40pp. Blow off those Christmas Mince Pies and head into the New Year in the manner you intend to continue in!

All entries to: mustardtennis@xtra.co.nz or phone 021 476 606

Reminders: 

Bar Volunteers needed

We still need 1 more volunteer 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.
