Joelene notches up 100!

Joelene notches up 100!

Last weekend, Joelene Feneon achieved her 100 singles wins milestone.

Two things distinguish Joelene in achieving this. Firstly, that she has predominantly played at Number 1 in Premier, firstly for Burwood T C, then Burnside Park, but more latterly and for the most part for Waimairi Tennis Club,  whom she still represents, in order to achieve this.

And secondly, as a South African, she didn’t grow up playing and recording victories here in Christchurch in her youth. She arrived in Canterbury in 2006. Started playing in 2008 and she has achieved her 100 wins since then.

Waimairi would like to congratulate Joelene on her contribution to tennis in Canterbury and congratulate her on achieving this milestone.

Dear members,

It is with great sadness that we advise the shock passing of our Patron, Life Member and past President, James Seales.

James passed away on Saturday morning, at home.

Our thoughts are with his wife Laraine.

With current restrictions on numbers at gatherings we are unsure at this time what the funeral arrangements will be.

Waimairi Tennis Club Quiz Night – July 2020

Waimairi members and friends enjoyed our Quiz Night at the Elmwood Trading Company on Sunday July 26th. The off-court competition was fierce but fair among the 16 teams which filled the Elmwood backroom to capacity.  Congratulations go to The Cornels, Megan Bruynel and Co, for placing first, followed by Frank Cochran and Team, with Lyndon Bowden and his team at third. There were many other winners on the evening thanks to our sponsors who provided raffle prizes.

The Committee would like to thank everyone who participated, and our sponsors, for making the Quiz Night such an enjoyable evening.
