We’re looking forward to the rain subsiding and the advent of Spring at Strathfield Sports Club, which will see numerous of our tennis competitions get underway.

It’s just over a fortnight until we commence our new Saturday Singles Teams initiative. Beginning on Saturday 13 September we’ll be running an eight week competition for three-player teams aimed at giving our members a taste of competitive action.

Two members will play a singles and doubles match each week, with a two week break for school holidays. Entries have now closed but it’s hoped if the format is a success this will become an annual fixture in our tennis calendar.

September will also see the submission of our Spring Badge teams which will be entered in the metropolitan competition. This is a great way to test yourself against members from other clubs and meet players of similar ability you wouldn’t ordinarily come up against. The Club is always well represented in Badge and this promises to again be the case in 2014.

Our 2014 Club Championship will also be run next month in what promises to be a Super September of tennis action. Entry is now open to all tennis members, with the tournament to be staged over the last weekend of the month.

For entry forms and to find out more information about all the upcoming tennis activities at Strathfield Sports Club talk to our bar staff or contact our Facility Co-ordinator Steve Crass on 0408 024 148. We look forward to hosting an array of competitive tennis fixtures over the coming months and invite all members whether returning or new to be a part of the action.
