65+ Morning Men’s Tennis

 

Hi, tennis players!

Katsue Toddun, the treasurer of the Mangawhai Tennis Club, is interested in starting Men’s morning tennis on Tuesday/Friday mornings.

 

We currently allow a few men to come and play in the Monday/Wednesday Morning Tennis Group, but we are considering changing it back to “women’s tennis”, which these sessions were originally formed for. We now have more than 40 female members on the list, and these women have begun to fill up all the courts. There are quite a few new female members registered this year, and we would like to encourage them to join us on these two days of the week. That means we have to set up new dates and times for the men.   

 

Where: Mangawhai Tennis Club Courts

 

When: Tuesday and Friday mornings

 

Hours: 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. (or later)

 

Who: any men aged 65 and older (However, basic knowledge of tennis skills, scoring and rules is necessary.)

 

Cost: $5 per person for cost of balls for two sessions

 

Minimum number: 4

 

Katsue usually organises her own games on Tuesday/Friday mornings, and while she is on the court, she is offering to help senior men form a new tennis group.

 

If there is enough interest, Katsue will supply a tube of balls for 2 sessions. (If you wish to continue with the group, you can then decide how you want to manage your tennis sessions. Katsue can help you with that.) 

 

You don’t have to be a member to come to the first two sessions, but you will have to join the club to continue. Then you can organise games during other times, too.

 

If you are too good for this group, Katsue might have to ask you to move to Monday Night Men’s Tennis!

 

So, if you are interested, please contact Katsue at 0212287990 or k_toddun@xtra.co.nz.
