Hi - you may have noticed the CBTA's latest big project, HOT SHOTS
tennis courts is now complete. Built behind courts 1 and 2 Panania
Tennis Centre and the Pro Shop, we were lucky enough to have the land
donated by Panania Diggers Club. The Club have also helped this
wonderful children's project with land clearing and many other things.
Thanks to two Grants from Community Building Partnership Scheme (State
Government, endorsed by Glenn Brookes MP), the CBTA could start this
project and it finished before Xmas (Dec 23). Grand opening was
on Saturday 14 February 2015,
at 10am. Here's a story
the Express newspaper ran on Dec 9.
Some photos of the finished project here. Ring Steve or Caroline to have
a go on these marvellouse new little courts - bring the kids/grandkids
and try them out!
The Thursday Mens Competition starts up next week with an impressive 11
teams. Great news!!! with the handicap system, it should be a
great comp. Reserves are always needed - there's 3 to a team, so
its a shorter time to play.
the new fixture folder (with a couple of teams playing off Roger
Bowman - that's good news)
You may be watching lots of tennis at the moment and have noticed ads
for Fast4 - a new concept from Tennis Australia. For a
demonstration, click on the link and see some of CBTA's best players use
the Fast 4 concept at Deverall Park recently. It's fast and
exciting and we know it will catch on.

NOTE: The Annual Revesby Workers Elite Player Scholarshp is
now closed. Selectors met with the Director of Revesby Workers
Club and selections were made to be presented to the whole Committee
Wednesday 25th February.
