Social Tennis, Tournament of Year Award, Christmas Party

SOCIAL  TENNIS

Most members who play social tennis expressed their dislike of the computerised system of putting on sets.  By agreeing with those members not to use the computer means reverting to having Court Captains. The Club Committee has agreed that Committee members should not be solely responsible for Court Captain duties and to share this role with those who rejected the computer system.

The Committee has agreed to trial the following system.
1 – One Committee member and one social player to share the role of Court Captain each Saturday. This will allow both members to play tennis.
2 – Social play to commence at 1pm and end at 4pm. Members wishing to play before 1pm and after 4pm to arrange their own sets.
3 – Play will be for 30 minutes with sudden death deuce. Any warm up time will be included within the 30 minutes. The hooter will signal the end of play at which time players will have 5 minutes to get organised with partners and court allocation for the next 30 minutes play.  This system should result in few if any players sitting off waiting for sets to be completed.
4 – A Court Captains roster will be circulated to all members. Should you be unavailable on your rostered date you are requested to arrange your own replacement.
5 – Trial to commence Sept.23 and run through to Dec.16, a total of 12 weeks excluding Club Championship dates. This should result in Committee and nominated social players assisting in the role once only this year.
