Greetings to New Zealand's best tennis community. I trust the festive season will live up to its name and as the countdown to Christmas begins (only 7 more sleeps!); you will be blessed. The tennis year has got off to a hectic start with all areas of the club functioning well.

Courts five and six were resurfaced in-time the start of inter-club. Our selectors managed to get over fifty teams selected across juniors, seniors and midweek ladies. Well done to all the selectors.

Our coaches are competing with our mid week ladies to see who can be the brightest dressed in the club (have you seen their shirts!) and they have rolled out new programs for both our Juniors and Seniors. The hard work they put in the off season appears to paying dividends with many happy customers. Our midweek ladies have been all smiles and still serve the best food at the many functions. Our mid week ladies got the Xmas season started with a well attended event at the beginning of December. The junior and senior event took place this weekend and were very happy occasions. Fiona and her merry team of helpers did a great job and it was the well attended. Check out the pics here

Your committee has been hard at work and I would like to thank them for the efforts. Like Santa's elves; they are the unsung heroes who put in many hours to ensure we maintain the best club on the shore. One of the many projects they have completed is the upgrading of our website. Over the next couple of months more content will be added as we utilise our website,( to showcase our club to the world. So give it whizz (especially the gallery). Please also provide feedback for your committee members as it would be much appreciated.

Alcohol on club premises

Recently; the committee have been notified that certain members of our community have objections to any alcohol been served at the club without a liquor license. We have no desire to transgress the law and in order to be compliant with council and national regulations; we are not allowed to serve any alcohol, including bring your own, going forward. We have always promoted the safe use of alcohol and wish to continue to do so.

We have recently passed the first hurdle in a multistage process to obtain a liquor license with our land lord  (Auckland Council) granting us permission to proceed. This took many months as it was further complicated by the establishment of the super city. As you can imagine there are many more hurdles to overcome. We will also be applying for a temporary license for the Chelsea Cup events and keep you updated of the application progress. If you have any any enquiries please feel free to contact your committee members.

This year our community has endured many hardships through sickness and grief for those who have departed us. Our thoughts and love are with their families through this festive season.

There is some great tennis on show starting tomorrow at Albany Tennis Park. You will have the opportunity to our coach Adam Thompson (a past champion and seventh seed) compete in the New Zealand Championships.

On a lighter note I hope, like me, you have been really good year and Santa gives what you deserve! See you next year!
