Book A Court Update

The installation of our new Club access system, Book A Court, is now complete and is undergoing trials before we commission the system.
The next steps in being ready to switch the system on are:
  • Training sessions will be held to take interested members through the use of the system.  Proposed dates are:  Thursday night 16th Aug, 7:30pm &  Saturday 18th Aug 11:00am-2:00pm.
  • The system is planned to be commissioned in September, and the date will be firmed up as our trials progress
Please contact President Greg Ewen on 0409 009 889 should you have any questions in the meantime

On behalf of the Donvale Tennis Club, it is my pleasure to declare Registrations Open for our 2018/19 Summer Competition, via the Registration button on TeamApp. 

FYI, Registrations will only remain open until the end of August.

We are keen to increase the number of teams for Summer so please invite your friends from school to register along with you (and/or come to our Free Hit Friday/Pre-Finals Practice/Awards Night on Friday 24 August). 

To help the Junior Committee we are asking all current juniors to sign up as soon as possible to help us with the large task of selecting teams.

N.B. You will need to be a current member of the Club to compete. 

Please feel free to ask me any questions over the next few Saturday mornings or on email
