COURT SIDE NEWS

WP LEAGUE:

Kelvin Grove Tennis Club has entered four teams to play in the WP leagues starting August 26th.

Amongst our four teams entered it will be a first for Kelvin to enter 3 singles teams into the WP leagues

Our ladies team which has drawn top players from the western cape to represent Kelvin has been placed in the first league and has great expectations to win the league and secure promotion to the premier league.

Our two mens singles teams and our mens veterans doubles team are also determined to attempt to win their respective divisions so please come down to support the teams when they have a home match on Saturday afternoons from 13h00.

FLOODLIGHTS:

Thanks again to our main sponsor ARGON ASSET MANAGEMENT courts 1,2,3 are floodlit and members have been enjoying after hours play on these three front courts.  We do ask members to please remember to turn off the lights once you exit the courts unless members are there waiting to come on and to only turn on the lights when light starts to fade to ensure we are not wasting unnecessary electricity which our members are fortunate not to have to pay for unlike other clubs.

SOCIAL:

Our Sunday social will resume in September after a winter break over July and August. We may look at an alternative day for social due to the feedback we received from our survey so as to include as many members wishing to play social as possible.  If you would like to attend social OR if you are already a regular please email Jackie to ensure you are on her data base so she can inform you with any social news or changes
