WELCOME TO THE COMOX VALLEY TENNIS CLUB - CELEBRATING COMMUNITY TENNIS

February 2019 Newsletter
Club News
Welcome to 2019 everyone!  Members of our executive for 2019 are listed to the right. It's a great team and we have already been hard at work:
  • organizing another successful Christmas party this past December (Thanks for the pictures Sharon !)
  • transitioning the club to the new BC Societies Act.
  • arranging to have the courts cleaned at Anderton Park.  Costs have been shared with the Town of Comox.
  • joining Tennis BC as an Outdoor Community Club.  This will allow us to keep membership fees at our wonderfully low level for at least a couple of years.
  • meeting with the CRA to discuss improvements to accessing squeegees and lights at Lewis Park (I'll send out another email as things firm up)
  • planning to purchase and install a few new nets in this spring.
  • committing to our spring and summer Junior programme.

The 2019 tennis season planning is well underway, courts are booked for Leagues, Juniors, Open Day and Season Wrap-Up.  But we need help to fill out the rest of 2019 events calendar ! 

Traditionally we have had monthly social tennis events (May, June, July, August and September), we have hosted neighbouring tennis clubs for fun days of tennis, and we have organized trips to play at those clubs.  These are great opportunities for members to have fun and putting their own spin on an event. Get a group of friends together, pick a date, set a theme, decide the location, choose the food (or not) and organize the tennis.  Most importantly, have fun and help keep this club awesome!  Once a committed group of volunteers is in place, we can book courts and set the event in the club calendar. 

We are also looking for volunteers to help with:

  • facilities maintenance at Anderton 
  • the junior programme,
  • clubhouse cleaning,
  • publicity,
  • setting up a recycling programme
  • presidential pampering


Leading up to Membership and Volunteer Sign Up Day on March 23, I will be emailing everyone with more information about volunteer opportunities but in the meantime don't hesitate to contact me if you want to take something on!

Remembering Ernie - Mike Barner, Pat and Marion McGrath will be hosting a fun memorial event Thursday March 14th in honour of Ernie Chadler.  Tennis will take place from 9 am until noon, followed by food.  We'll have a basket at the door for cards to the family and donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Believe it or not spring is coming, so get your tennis gear ready, mark your calendars and watch your email for all the great events listed below. See you on the courts !
