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.

The annual Waimairi Seniors tournament was held over the weekend of July 4-5th, indoors at Wilding Park.
 
A large contingent of players (92) turned out on the Saturday with the last ball hit at 7.15pm! Between 50-60 players managed to complete the Sunday schedule to cap off another very successful tournament.
A great effort from all who had a hand in organising the event.

Forsyth Barr Winter Tournament

Our Annual Winter Business House competition was due to kick off last night but the weather gods spoiled the party.

Sponsored again this year by Forsyth Barr, The Forsyth Barr Winter Tournament will feature seven teams of 4 players battling it out at the club over the remaining winter months.

With cash prizes on offer at the end of the competition, the teams made up of men and women , will play a series of doubles games each Thursday night.

The fast nature of the format, three doubles matches with different partners over 1.5 hours, has seen Business House become one of the more popular competitions in the country.

This year the teams, featuring players from Premier grade and below,will be playing under the glow of our new LED court lighting system.
