Presidents Report

Let me start by thanking all those who helped out at our recent Open Day and made it into a great success for our Club. It would be remiss of me not to make special mention of our coaches, Wade and Zoe who worked tirelessly all day with the Juniors.

The Sad Passing of Wally Woolcott

On the 30th of December 2012 Mr Wally Woolcott once owner of Woolcott Tennis Centre at Burpengary passed away in his sleep at his home in New Guinea.

I (David Boucher) was part of the...
