March 2020 Newsletter
This month has been so busy:
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
We ask that everyone makes sensible decisions with regards to their health, or their child’s health, so that our members stay as healthy as possible. With this in mind, the following measures have been implemented at the club until further notice:
Above all else – let’s all stay virus-free.
Black Tie Dinner Saturday 21 March from 6pm
We are currently finalising the list of auction items (which looks amazing – worth nearly $20,000) and this list will be emailed to all club members prior to the dinner. Yes, even if you’re unable to attend, you can still make a bid!
PLEASE NOTE: The evening is starting slightly earlier – drinks from 6.00pm onwards.
Our thanks again to Vic & Jemma from Harcourts for their help with the event and running the live auction. Also, a huge thanks to all the other businesses and members who have donated items for the auction.

Harcourts Message from Vic & Jemma
It's been an exciting last few months out there in real estate. With some great energy back in the market we have seen lots of exciting auctions and great sales on the peninsula. It's excellent to see 2020 off to a good start after a slightly quieter 2019. With interest rates at an all time low it certainly seems to be fuelling the buyers who have been waiting for the right time to act. The constant that remains in this area, is the superb location, beaches, community and schools which means that it is always a desirable place to live no matter what is happening with the market in the rest of the country.
So make the most of the last summer sun and the energy in the market. If you have been thinking about selling – give us a call and let us help you achieve a great result for your home. Otherwise get out on the court and enjoy the positive energy and fun that the club offers. We look forward to hopefully seeing some of you at the fantastic black tie event coming up to help raise funds for the club. See you there!
Vic, Jemma & Carolyn
Our junior coaching programmes finish through the week of 16-21 March. On Saturday 21st, Harcourts will have their coffee and ice cream cart at the club, so make sure you stay for a coffee and watch the final morning of junior tennis coaching and interclub.
In the next few weeks our junior and senior tennis club champs will be held. Every year these competitions seem to get bigger, busier and better. We’re expecting the same for 2020.
Equally important at such as the junior champs is the support from parents. Please take the chance to leave work a little early and come and support your children when competition starts Monday 23 March. The bar will be open to ensure everyone can fight off dehydration!
With summer interclub into the final rounds, good luck to those teams who are close to winning their competitions. Remember, any potential rained out matches must be played, so if managers/captains have any trouble getting opponents to agree to a date, let Louise or Rex know asap so that we can contact Tennis Northern and secure points.
