Clubroom news

We have a function on this Friday 8th March 6pm onwards - the Argosy Open corporate tennis. Please be considerate and helpful during this event.

The vandalised wall on the squash grandstand has been fixed and painted.

We're still awaiting dates for the clubroom flooring replacement.

Visitor fees

We love that you want to share our Club with your friends. If they are not a member of the Club, they are welcome but please put $20 cash in the drop box next to the Pro Shop with your name on it if there is no one in the bar or in the office. Perhaps even entice them to join to avoid further visitor fee charges.

Security

Please ensure:

1. That you are the only person using your Access Card.

2. That the Club is locked up and secure before you leave, day or night.

3. That if you open the doors onto the deck or in the gym, that you close them.

This is for your safety and the safety of everyone.

Volunteer bar duty

We currently need members to volunteer on the bar. We are looking for people who can commit to a date that you could do every month. Currently we need bar staff on 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th. 19th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 25th and 27th of the month. Can one of these days be you?  Or could you and a buddy commit to a couple of days so you have flexibility to swap?

Next training day with our Duty Manager, Leanne Roberts is this Friday, 8th March at 4pm.

March membership renewals

All members whose membership expires in March will have just recently received an email from Pia. If you believe your membership is due in March and have not received an email, please contact the office. We are keen to have you all back this year.

Tennis

Tennis Club Champs entries close soon: last chance to enter

This is it: the main event of the tennis calendar kicks off next month with a dedicated finals weekend across Saturday 6 April 6 and Sunday 7 April. 
Silverware up for grabs will be graded men's, women's singles, doubles, and mixed events plus junior boys' and girls' singles and doubles titles.
We will be running Open (for higher-graded players) and B (lower grades and social-level) comps for senior players so there are events for all abilities.
Getting into the draw is simple, just click here to fill in the entry form now!

Senior interclub fees

Winter interclub entry is just around the corner so now is a good time to clear up those entry fees from the summer comp! We have set up payment on the bar till for interclub fees, so they can be paid via eftpos when you're here playing if someone is on the bar (just make sure your name is written on the receipt tab that gets put in the till so we can match the payment to you). Alternately, if you have fees outstanding you can respond via the follow-up email we're sending and pay online. Thanks!

Senior club night Thursday & Sunday club day 

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

Junior club night Friday, weekend interclub, and junior programmes

Junior club night runs Fridays from 4.30pm–6pm, with organised match-play for juniors who can serve and rally.

Junior after-school programmes are running now. Contact club professional David Mustard on 021 476 606 for more info.

Squash

Senior Autumn Interclub

Senior Autumn Interclub starts on 11-12 March. Squash Auckland has sent info to team captains but players need to make sure you are aware of your responsibility to field a team each week and turn up on time. 

Masters Autumn Interclub

The draws for Masters Autumn Interclub are now available to view in iSquash.  The 10-week competition will start on 13 March and end on the 22 May, with no matches on 24 April due to both Easter Monday and ANZAC Day falling this week so we expect plenty of players to be unavailable.

Online Club Referee Exam

This is a great starting point for both new and experienced players to ensure you can be confident of the rules.  

All players competing in competitive play such as interclub and tournaments are expected to have completed and passed the exam.

The exam consists of 50 multi-choice questions and can be fully completed online through the Squash NZ website.  The Club Referee qualification is valid for two years from the time of completion.  Both players and non-players are able to complete the exam.
