INTERCLUB teams have been organised and competitions are under way. Club Captain Craig Burrows sweated long and hard trying to get everyone into a team that suited them. Some of the teams in weekend mixed grades have had to contain more members than usual. We are asking team captains to ensure everybody get a reasonable share of matches.

COACHING, for teams that want it, is available from the club coaches. The committee would prefer teams representing the club to support our own.

Graeme has added Scott Worsley to his coaching crew. Welcome Scott.

MEMBERSHIP for the new season is running at around the same numbers as usual for this time of year.

OPENING DAY, Sunday, September 1, was a beautiful day and a fun tournament was well attended, won by Murray Rout and Tania Morgun.

MIDWEEK LADIES opening day had a good turnout too and raised a record $325 for charity on their trading table.

JUNIOR tournaments are now being run on Sunday morning for players 12 years and up. They will continue until Junior Interclub starts.

LOCAL BODY ELECTIONS: Some of you will know LISA WHYTE, a member of the club, is standing for the Auckland Council as well as the Hibiscus and Bays and Kaipataki local boards. You may not know that in her term on the Bays board Lisa has been a valuable supporter of the club. So has JULIA PARFITT, the board chair, who is also seeking a seat on the council as well as re-election to the board.

You might also note a candidate for the Waitemata District Health Board – ANDY SCHMIDT, who is physio for the Davis Cup team.

CONGRATULATIONS to Russell Parkinson, a past president of the club, who has been appointed a vice president of Tennis New Zealand. It means you will find him in the VIP lounge at Wimbledon or Flushing Meadows, wearing a blazer of course.

LIQUOR LICENCE: Slow progress here, which is no fault of John Smith who is dealing with the licensing officials. We are hoping to get another temporary license for the interclub season so that you can have a drink after the match.

HOUSEKEEPING: Please note this: There are two interlocking padlocks on the Rae Rd gate into the park. Club members have a key to one of them (the longer one) which lets us into the park if the security officer has locked the gate. If you unlock the gate, please leave the padlock hanging (locked) on the bracket AT THE POST, not on the swinging arm. If you leave it on the arm the system we have arranged with the council does not work.

Try to remember also to lock the park gate if you are the last to leave the club after dark.

And if you are last to leave the courts at any time, kick the brick into the court. Our electronic security system is no use if gates are left wedged open all day and night, as frequently happens.

Please keep the facilities tidy. The clubhouse is cleaned twice a week but we shouldn’t leave dusty floors, messy benches and table tops, or bottles and litter lying around, inside or out, for the next people to tidy up.

- John Roughan

President, 2013-14.
