Finals for Men's Open Singles, Men's B Singles, Men's B Doubles, Women's Singles, Women's Open Doubles, Women's B Doubles, and Mixed B Doubles will be contested so make sure you're at the club to catch the action and enjoy a BBQ and drinks at the bar. Things will kick off from 11am with main singles due for around 3pm and prizegiving for all completed grades (senior and junior) to follow.
Thanks to everyone who has played their games so far, and for those of you still in the draw please make sure you complete semi finals by Saturday please. Any questions re scheduling or court booking please contact either Jacqui on 376 0681 or Simon at tennisVP@hernebayrackets.co.nz.
Check the club website end of Saturday for Finals Day schedule and any last minute weather reschedule updates.
Please see photo of damage to Squash Court 1 from the use of marking shoes. This happened over the weekend and is going to cost the club several hundred dollars to clean. Can all members please be vigilant on this issue if anyone is seen using shoes that aren’t non-marking they should be asked to come off the courts.
New-ish to the club and interested in playing some competitive social tennis? Winter interclub starts soon and is a great way to test the waters for competitive senior club play. Matches are played alternate Sunday mornings over winter at 10am. If you haven't been contacted by one of the interclub captains and are interested, please contact Simon at tennisVP@hernebayrackets.co.nz. Spaces are available for reserving and regular spots in both mixed and men's teams.
The weatherforecast is looking good for tennis this week, come down and enjoy a few social games. There may also be a couple of club champs matches being played.
With school holidays upon us - there will be no junior tennis club night.
