Sunshine Tennis Club members enjoying a sunny day on the courts

STC Members Area

The Hobart International HI18 is over for another year and despite perfect weather during the week (apart from some wind!), the last two sessions were affected by rain delays with the final taking 8 and a half hours for Elise Mertens to defeat Romanian Mihaela Buzarnescu 6-1, 4-6, 6-3. With the world SB20's sailing on the Derwent during the week, the backdrop to the tennis from the box was impressive.

From all reports, everyone enjoyed the tennis during the week and the Corporate Box was again a success. Many thanks to everyone who attended, all our Box tickets were issued with excellent support by sponsors so Sunshine Tennis Club certainly did their bit in supporting the event.

Our member, Lenice Beard was also mentioned in the Mercury on Saturday as one of the six people who have seen the event grow from humble beginnings into one of the world's premier WTA events and have volunteered every year since 1994. Congratulations Lenice on this fine achievement.

In addition to the tennis, Tennis Tasmania hosted a President's brunch on the Tuesday morning and a Community Information forum on the Thursday morning where it was great to network with representatives from other Tasmanian Clubs and hear some interesting speakers from Tennis Australia on topics like "on line court booking" and "Community Play".

 

REMINDER

Could all groups take a few minutes before leaving to check how clean the clubhouse is and if the floor needs a quick sweep, do so.

Also check the rubbish bin in the kitchen has been emptied and there is no food/chips scraps to attract ants.

If using the clubhouse just a reminder all goods are available on the honour system and donations placed in the red tin in the fridge.

Whilst on the Clubhouse, just a further reminder as we approach Christmas and for when the bbq is installed, the bringing of your own alcohol onto the licensed premises is illegal and the owners, being the Clarence City Council could receive heavy fines. Any alcohol in the fridge is purchased from the Community Centre and a donation requested when a person with an RSA (responsible serving of alcohol certificate) is on hand.

If you wish to obtain an RSA, courses are available on line at minimal cost - approx. $40

The Club has a ball machine for the benefit of all members. The machine is capable of firing balls at different speeds, angles and distances. It has a capacity of 70 balls (provided) before it needs to be refilled. It is great for practising all tennis shots from beginners to advanced.
Cost is $5.00 per session or you can ‘bag a bargain’ and get 12 sessions for $50.00.
For access or vouchers please contact Michael on 0400 974 056
