Randburg Tennis Club Newsletter February 2004
Welcome back to all of you and may 2004 be a healthy, happy and prosperous year.
Championship entry lists are on the back wall of the club. Matches begin on Saturday
7th February. The schedule of matches will be put up on the Wednesday preceding the
weekend match. We ask that you enter a maximum of five events so that you do not run into
match overlaps. Please ensure your entry fees are paid timeously – the cost per event being
R20.00. Matches are played on Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings. If a match is
rained out or you are unable to play, the game must be made up within a week or forfeited.
Please respect this as finals will be played on the 13th/14th March. The championship lunch
will be on Sunday 14th. If you are lucky enough to be in possession of a trophy, please return
Championships eat into social tennis time and although courts are made available, there can
be a long wait between games so please just chill and support the bar. We will approach
IRG Primary and ask if we can use their courts as well.
Good Luck to each entrant – "just do it."
Congratulations to our very own Gareth Gibson who after winning a local tournament jetted
off to the Australian Open. Watch out for him on TV.
WELL DONE to our juniors who have been awarded Gauteng Colours. Their names will
shortly be posted on the notice board. It is a wonderful achievement and a credit to the
coaches, long suffering taxi moms and to the players themselves.
If there are any general queries or suggestions for contributions to this newsletter, please
contact Athena for your contribution. Perhaps the capitalists out there can offer ways to
improve our income as we would like to resurface one or two courts in the near future.
We would like another fridge; do you have one to donate?
Please put your name on the cake list.
Do we have your e-mail address? If not please give it to Athena.
SUBS are now due and accounts are available at bar counter.
