Our LED court lighting project was recently completed. The last of our old lighting poles were removed on Tuesday 20th August.
Our night players are enjoying much improved court lighting and we now have the ability to light courts individually. The lighting and uniformity levels on all courts are well above Australian standards for community tennis clubs.
Thanks to all members for their co-operation during the project which allowed us to keep court closures to a minimum.
Our AGM is scheduled to be held at 7:30pm on Monday 9th of September.
All members are welcome to attend.
The committee welcomes new volunteers to assist with the management of the Club.
Any member who may be interested in volunteering to join our committee should contact the Club President for further information.
After the AGM there will be complimentary Wine & Cheese!!!
As advised to members recently we have received approval from the City of Whitehorse to replace our current end of life court lighting installation with a LED lighting installation.
Works are scheduled to commence in ~mid to late June 2019 (to be confirmed) Members will be advised in due course of any necessary court closures during the project. At this stage we expect the courts to be unavailable during the July school holidays as a minimum.
