I wanted to congratulate all those Taieri players who played in the Southern Teams Event in the weekend. The club had a large amount of players in the competition and everyone rose to the occasion and played to the best of thier ability. The matches that I managed to watch were very impressive. You all did a fine job out there on the courts. I was particularly impressed with the way in which you represented your club dring the weekend. You are all truly great ambassadors who are an absolute credit to the Taieri Tennis club and great role models to our younger players.
A big thank you must also go out to all those players that filled in for our reps during Saturdays interclub matches. With so many Taieri players out it was a real juggle trying to ensure that the majority of you got matches. I’m sorry that in some cases your opposition didn’t turn up and you had no prior warning. That is very annoying and inconvenient for you and your parents.
Many of you have managed to get your singles matches underway to contest the Junior Singles Championships, so thanks for arranging these matches. For those that haven’t managed to sort out a suitable time to play – please get a wriggle on! I’ve updated the tournamanet planner site with the match resuts that I have so far so when you get a chance you might like to see how everyone is going.
So that I can arrange the winners names to be engraved on the singles trophies, can I please ask those of you that have the trophies to polish them up and drop them off to the club over the next few weeks.
Please check out the Taieri Tennis club website for Saturday’s draw (you can actually view all draws to the end of the season so you’ll know who you’re playing when and where. So no excuses for not knowing!
