Social Ladies BBQ

Last week the mid-week Ladies held a BBQ and shared a cake to celebrate Jennie Armstrong’s birthday.

Thanks for all of your hard work Jen volunteering for the club.

Meeting with Councillor Hadi Saab

We met with Kingston City Councillor Hadi Saab and James Prideaux (Property Leader in Sports & Recreation). We discussed the key needs for our club including a replacement clubhouse, for courts 4  5 the need for new fences, court surfaces and lights, extra courts. Cr Saab was surprised we needed to hire courts at two other clubs for our senior teams.  Council will confirm the priority of our clubhouse for replacement in their review of their 75 sports pavilions. We had a wide-ranging discussion and found the council to be receptive to our ideas.

I’d like to thank Damian Graf and Tony Withers for managing their coaching sessions to cater for the Council visit. 

Tennis Competition

Junior teams are playing finals and we wish them well. Boys 2 and Boys 3 on Saturday mornings and Sunday’s Section 2 and Section 5 have qualified for finas. Damian Graf will provide an update at the close of the season.

Senior teams are playing in the Winter Competition. We have 2 teams playing their home games at Royal Avenue and a Pennant team playing out of Le Page Tennis Club. Our Mixed team is playing their home games at Highmoor, so drop by and say hello. If you are interested in competition tennis, please contact Michael Lynch on 0487 391 781.

I have Highmoor caps and shirts available for sale. Please call Bernie on 0424 797 420.

Tree Pruning 

Thanks to Darrin, Geoff and Henry for their work last week in pruning the trees facing Le Page Street. We discussed with Council the approach to removing large scale green waste. 

Volunteers required

We require a volunteer(s) to take on the annual Bunnings BBQ. This is a major fundraiser for the club and with the right weather conditions we can make over $2,000 in a day. Please contact me if you would like to be involved in such a fun day.

JUNIOR HOLIDAY CLINICS

JUNIOR HOLIDAY CLINICS

Damian Graf held the first of the summer junior tennis clinics on Thursday and Friday. Unfortunately Thursday was rained out and he has rescheduled the Thursday morning session to next week on the Thursday the 29th.

The club supplied Zooper Doopers for the kids on Friday which were a big hit with the kids.

Call Damian on 0412 295 658 or email using the button

CLUB UPDATE

 

On Monday the 19th Dec, Dale Colllins, Kyle Mallligan and I met with our Council coordinator, Sam Kelsall,  to discuss future projects for the club e.g. fencing on courts 4 & 5, new toilet and shower facilities and Council cutting back the trees on the fence line. We’ll keep you updated on progress.

CLUB HOUSE DOORS – Unfortunately the pin codes are failing to open the club house door, so could you please leave the club house unlocked so members and guests have access to the toilets, kitchen and defibrillatior.

A contractor will attend in January to fix the door problem.

BBQ SUCCESS

A huge thanks to Ross and Gill Cartledge on leading the Highmoor BBQ at Bunnings last Saturday. We made over $2,000 profit which was a record. With more sunshine we would have made even more.

A special note to the Lithgow family (Gil, Jenn, Asher and Lani) who are members and great supporters of the junior teams for loaning some eskies and equipment from their Party Food Melbourne business.

Volunteers on the day were 

Ross and Gill Cartledge, Maurice Paterson, Joe Ellul, Moon Liu, David Henderson, John Smak, Robyn Pietsch, Bernie, Leo and Tommy McInerney, Darrin Hunt, Cherly Kay and Henry Zalega.

What a great effort by a great team.

Abi, Abigail, Olivia and Lily were easily the best dressed team in all of junior tennis when they played in their new Highmoor shirts.  Well done, girls!

CLUB UPDATE

 

We’ve applied for grants from Tennis Victoria and Kingston Council. Unfortunately we were unsuccessful with the Tennis Victoria grant. The word limit for their application was a maximum of 100 words and I only used 99. So I probably should have added an extra adjective.

Kyle Malligan and I also met with Kingston Council recently to update them on our club and the growth we’ve had. With a new sport and recreation liaison officer in Sam Kelsall, who has worked in netball and basketball, we look forward to working collaboratively with the council.

DeFIBRILLATOR TRAINING Update

We had a tremendous roll up to our Defibrillator training session on May 14. Over 25 people came along. The presentation was first class and it was great to see how simple the defibrillator is to use and to learn how crucial the first few minutes are if someone has a heart attack.

Please continue to support our sponsors of the defibrillator, Terry White Chemmart Cheltenham, who were very generous towards our club.

LADIES MID WEEK TENNIS

LADIES MID WEEK TENNIS

When: MONDAY AND WEDNESDAYS 9:30 – Noon

One of the great parts of Highmoor is the social tennis. The Ladies Mid-week tennis is held Monday and Wednesday from 9:30am to Noon each week.

New participants are always welcome. It is a great way to stay fit and healthy.  So come along and join in. 

The first person to spot Laurene (who organised our defibrillator training) in the photo will win a free night session of tennis.

 

JUNIOR RETIREMENT  

 

Josh Glassock has retired from junior tennis (after getting too old) and has been a great contributor to his junior teams. We think he has played in 4 premierships but to be honest we lost count. Josh always got his team-mates enthused for the match and his talent on the court was equally matched by his own confidence and a devastating high-five when playing doubles. We hope to see Josh in our senior teams soon.

We have two junior teams in finals this season. So good luck to our teams.

Team shirts – we will have our first order of shirts back hopefully this week. We are placing a second order and will have the majority of our junior players in Highmoor shirts next season.

Any enquiries please email Kylie.
