This term has gone so quickly and we are on the last Saturday before the big Keyhealth tournaments in Durban, Ellis Park and Benoni. All of you who have had the pleasure of working with Eric van Eck will know what fun tennis can be and as Eric is our visiting pro. this week please make every effort to be at squad on Saturday. As I said last week we cannot have squad on the 16th June because of the first rugby test match between South African and England which takes place on that Saturday and access to the area will be restricted even though the match is in the late afternoon. Ellis Park Sports who run the rugby stadium have requested I cancel squad on that day to avoid any problems with access to the tennis grounds.
Those of you playing the tournaments during the holidays, play well but most of all enjoy yourselves whether you win or not.
I look forward to seeing you tomorrow ( dress warmly) and although I shall be sending out emails before the next term starts I just want to say that we have 2 matches against Gauteng East – one on the 4th August when everyone will play at Ellis Park and again on 25th August when everyone will play at Benoni. We also have a mini series at Ellis Park on the first 2 weekends of the next term, 21/22 and 27/28 JULY so all in all, a busy time before the exams set in!
