Spring 2017 Season starts this Wednesday 19th July.
We are all ready to go I think!
Score Books: there is a shortage of new books some clubs will receive in the mail with the fixture cards but I am distributing from a new/used supply I have.
Emergencies: I will try to assemble a list and email it but please talk to opposing captains and get a 'feel' for where you can borrow in an emergency. A bit harder in B Sp2 & B Grade because of no bye.
Entering of Results: Please get into the routine of entering promptly and certainly before our deadline of 7.00. Try getting the owner of the largest mobile phone at the lunch table to do the task there and then!!
We have just been given the news that Van Nam Vo, otherwise known as Van to all, passed away in Vietnam recently
He began in mid week men's in the Autumn season of 2008 and played in premierships at C Spec as well as over 100 matches for Burden Park.
He will be missed deeply by all who knew him for his top spin lobs, his happy nature not to mention his on-court exclamations in Vietnamese, French and English.

Bendigo Community Bank Pinewood sponsored luncheon and
On Wednesday morning 12th July, Glen Waverley Tennis Club hosted around 42 players for a Mid Week Mens Round Robin Social Tennis event. This was well organised by Dick Bartley.
MWM Round Robin held at GWTC Wednesday 12th July.
The social tennis was followed by a lovely BBQ Lunch Sponsored by Pinewood Community Bank Branch Bendigo Bank. Merv Ericson, Director of the Bank (and former Branch Manager) attended the lunch along with Marisa and Indu. Merv spoke of the strong relationship that exists between the Bank and GWTC/WDTA and he stressed that the more tennis clubs and members that have their banking with the Bank, then the better off the clubs will be.
The winners of each court were as follows:
|Court 1||Ian Archbold|
|Court 2||Dick Bartley|
|Court 3||Graeme Campbell|
|Court 4||Tony McCumstie|
|Court 5||Keith Johnston|
|Court 6||Ross Davies|
The winners each received a suitable prize for their efforts.
This was a most enjoyable event for the Mid Week Men.
2017 Autumn Season Finals successfully held Wednesday 14th June 2017
Grand final day at RRTC was a good day hopefully even for those that came second.
Results were as follows -
|A Res||Glen Waverley Aces defeated Glen Waverley Stars||4 sets to 2|
|B Sp 1||Lum Reserve defeated Burden Park||4 sets to 2|

|B Grade Div 1||Burden Park White defeated Doveton Magpies||4 sets to 0 (2 unfinished)|

Surprisingly, the previously reported "infamous hot dogs" lunch turned out to be quite pleasant, BBQ sausages followed by trophy presentations.
A special presentation was made to Ken Mitchell to mark his retirement as a much valued member of our MWM Sub-Committee - Ken, any further contribution as a "Consultant" will be highly regarded!!
