MLTC President’s Message

Hope everyone is staying well during the lockdown!

We are very lucky to play a sport that allows us to be able to exercise during these restrictions. For this to continue it is essential that all players  follow all the health protocols, wear a mask when signing in, arrive on time for your allotted playing time and , limit the time at the court waiting and leave prompting after your game. Can I also encourage all members to contact other members to organise a hit especially during member playing times when courts are available free to all members.

Behind the scenes there has been a lot happening this year.

  • The Accessible toilet has been completed and is proving very useful during the clubhouse closure.
  • The renovation of the bar is nearly complete – it has a new floor, new refrigeration, dishwasher, and an ice machine. Just some shelving to be done.
  • The men’s toilet is in the middle of a partial makeover. A further upgrade is on the drawing boards.
  • We have received a grant for water fountains. A new fountain will be installed on court three

The Committee has decided to move our accounting system over to Xero from MYOB. We  will start using “ In tennis” as our Club management system. This will enable us to streamline our Membership base and improve connectivity to members and more importantly allow better systems that require less manual input.

It has been many years since membership fees have been increased, from September 1 when you will be invoiced there will be a slight increase in fees.

I hope everyone stays strong during these testing times.
