December Newsletter


We would like to pass on our best wishes to you and your families for the forthcoming year and trust that you all have a wonderful and joyous Christmas.


Summer Competition:


A reminder that all Saturday/Sunday competitions recommence on the weekend of the 2nd February 2019. So far our summer teams are having another solid  season. The juniors have 16 of 18 teams and the seniors have 1 from 4 teams currently in the top 4. In the Premier Club award for the WDTAwe are 3rd overall which is an outstanding effort. Let’s hope the good form stays with us after the long Christmas break!


Mid week ladies:


Our Tuesday ladies are again part way through their season and having some success. Wednesdays team were premiers for the past season, congratulations.

While we have put forward teams for the next Wednesday season to begin Feb 2019, we are always interested in hearing from any more ladies who would like to participate. The teams play doubles matches from 9.30am for a few hours and enjoy a tasty lunch together at the end of play. Any enquiries please contact Pauline on 0437 194 762.

Nice to Know:


Two of our club members have made it to be ball boys at the Australian Open, well done to Kristian Tesevic and Sammy Kimpton.
