Enjoy the holidays

Well the Nationals are the next big challenge for all the squad players.  Those of you making the trip to Bloemfontein for the Keyhealth as well as the Nationals, play well and most of all enjoy the tennis.  It is important to win but equally important is the fact that you enjoy playing the game.

We are now on the school hols until the schools go back on the 4th October.  Our first squad was to be Saturday 9th October but SATA have asked Gauteng Central to host a Club Mixed Doubles tournament which is to be played over the weekend of the 9 and 10 October at Ellis Park.  I am trying to organise matches with Northerns and/or NW Province so that some of you can have tennis that Saturday but I have nothing definite yet.  However, I will send out another email next week giving you more details.

As I mentioned in the last email we will be changing times of the squad so that the same players do not have to be at Ellis Park at the early time of 7h45 every term!  So, U12 and U14 players please attend the first session at 7h45 to10h00 and the U16 and U18 players can have a ‘lie-in’ and play from 10h00 to 12h00.  I do hope that suits all of you.
