Templeton Tales



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.

Special thanks:

To everyone involved with our club over the past 9 months. This includes you, our members, who had to endure considerable downtime and unavailability of courts and competition not only due to Covid but also the works that have been going on since early in the year. Others involved and affected in some way were our coaching people led by Kelly, night members, weekend competition players, committee, senior and junior convenors 

A huge thank you to you all.

Summer Competition:

A reminder that all Saturday/Sunday competitions recommence on the weekend of the 30th January 2021. As we all know our competitons have been restricted but so far in a shortened year our performances have been commendable all round. We thank all involved, especially at junior levels, where there was considerable angst over any effects of Covid and the restrictions involved.

Mid week ladies:

Mid week competiton was abandoned and will recommence late January 2021. 

While we have put forward 2 teams (one each on Wednesday and Thursday) to begin late January 2021, we are always interested in hearing from 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 Wendy 0423 027 537

Night Tennis:

A reminder that our social night tennis competitions recommence the week of the 1st February 2021. Should you or any of your friends wish to participate  please call Don on 9800 3316 or 0425 748 138.  Mondays are a mixed competition. Wednesday is social and available to all. 


We have been indeed fortunate that works were able to continue during our Covid shutdown and it is envisaged that the last 2 courts will be complete and usable mid February. We again thank council and the contractors for their support and efforts in making this facility one of the best available. We eagerly await the finished product for all to enjoy.  Photos of the first 2 banks of completed courts are shown below.


We thank our sponsors; Barry Plant and Integrity Cabinets for their continued support of our Club. Remember these people support your club and our way to reward them is to use their services. Don’t forget to mention the Clubs name!

The Australian Open is not too far away and our interest levels in tennis are hopefully increased at this time of the year. Remember Kelly and her qualified coaches offer coaching and advice for all levels. 

You can contact Kelly at Straight Sets on 0414 874 482.
