from the Tennis section

The past two and a half weeks have been unimaginable for Plett, Knysna and surrounding areas and in this time of crisis we have had an amazing community standing together and assisting those in need.  Thank you to all the tennis members who volunteered.

Tennis update

Pinelands:  The Pinelands visit to Plett was very successful and the yearly event is always a fun one. The Pinelands group generously contributed R1000 for a donation ball which was fantastic.

Constantia:  We would like to bring back our Constantia challenge which was also a yearly event and always took place over a long weekend with lots of matches and inclusion with our Saturday social.

I have just been in contact with John Grant of Constantia and hope we can organise a weekend of fun tennis probably early next year.

North Boland Match:  Eden Tennis will be playing the annual Provincial match against North Boland on Saturday 29th July 2017 in Worcester. The teams will be the following:

Open team 6 men 6 ladies

40’s 50’s 60’s teams 4 men 4 ladies

(no 70’s team)

The committee will be submitting names to the Eden selection committee by 9th July.  Please can players wanting to put their names forward reply to this mail with their availability for selection.   The accommodation will be organised by the Eden committee and the players will be responsible for settling their own account.

Raffle:  We had a very successful raffle and Chris De Villiers was the lucky winner of the 4 tins of tennis balls (see attached).

Zumba:  The tennis club is alive on a Tuesday and Thursday evening with Zumba. We are hiring out the clubhouse so please let us know if you have an upcoming event.

The Zumba ladies will be having their “Christmas in July” on the evening of Saturday 22nd July.

Club house:  We are having external sensor lights and gutters installed. (next on our wish list is a water tank which is so necessary for water collection).

The advertising boards are looking fantastic and thank you to Pete Henderson.

We will also be organising a notice board and a re make of the champs board which seems to have gone astray! The walls will be decorated again with photographs etc.

Thank you to the committee for all their hard work once again.  See you on the court.
