Dear Members,
A few key dates and some changes in the club!

We are delighted to have Robert Barty as a guest speaker at the club.
Robert is the father of the world’s number one women’s tennis player Ash Barty. Robert will give a free talk about Ash’s tennis journey, while also promoting tennis.
A free BBQ starts at 5.30, followed by Robert’s talk at 6.30. The bar will be open to purchase drinks. Please confirm your attendance by replying to this email by Wednesday, March 23.
AGM: Tuesday, March 29.
All members are encouraged to attend. This is a great way to keep up with what is happening at the club - now, and for future seasons.
We are always looking for new people to join the committee. (If you are interested, please apply for your nomination on the website, or complete a nomination form at the club’s kiosk area. Thank you!)

FIXTURES FINAL:  We are fast approaching the Fixtures Final (Monday, March 28 to Thursday, March 31.) We will host a trophy presentation party and our awesome club member NIT LEE will be offering her equally awesome meals at a very friendly price. These meals will need to be ordered prior to the party: order forms will be at the kiosk area.

FIXTURES TERM 2:  As we finalise Season 1, we are also planning Season 2:  We will soon contact you to see who is in for Season 2.
There will be some format and team changes to combat the last-minute emergencies/forfeits. We are open for feedback, preferences and suggestions.
Term 2 competition starts on Tuesday, April 19.

COACHING: School holiday program dates are now online. Term 2 coaching starts on Tuesday, April 19 and online registrations will be available from Friday, April 1.
Current programs are running extremely well.
If you are interested in group or private lessons, contact the club or Dan Swords to arrange your session. We are always adding, and updating, with new classes. (Keep an eye on and/or our Facebook/Instagram pages.

We are working on a sponsorship package for local businesses. (Benefits include exposure to the public and tennis clients around Townsville, along with mentions on the TT newsletter and social media mentions. We have more than 1700 members and followers involved in our local sporting community.

PICKLEBALL: In a very short time MICHELLE JONES has steered the enjoyable game of Pickleball through a huge growth period. Michelle’s great effort in enthusiasm, knowledge and efficiency has led to growing numbers and to bringing the first Pickleball tournament to our club and NQ Tournament Pickleball games will be played at TT.
We are now running three sessions a week: Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Online enrolments are available via the TT website,
-you will make most welcome.

GST: Tennis Townsville is no longer exempt for GST, the Goods and Services Tax.
Therefore, effective immediately,
10% must be added on the cost of all products and services.  It is emphasised that this is not a price increase from Baseline Tennis Academy or Tennis Townsville Inc: This a government tax that we must pay.
Apologies for any miscommunication or inconvenience and we hope you will appreciate the financial strain and pressures we are facing in the day-to-day running of such a large centre.

Dan and The Team,
Baseline Tennis Academy/Tennis Townsville.
