Jul 182017
 

Dear HTA Clubs,

 

I hope everyone is enjoying winter tennis, netball/football or your other chosen winter pastimes…

 

With August shortly upon us, our thoughts turn to preparation for the upcoming HTA 2017/18 Tennis Spring/Summer Season.

 

Your Club is invited/required please to send two delegates to:

 

What: HTA 2017/18 Senior Junior Conference

When: Monday, 7 August 2017 7:15pm for 7:30pm

Where: Old Mill, Main St Hahndorf (Note: the venue has changed from past conferences)

Purpose:

·       Tennis Australia will give a Child Safeguarding workshop. Import update information for all Clubs.

·       HTA will discuss the newly revised Rules Of Match And Play, new competition formats etc for coming season.

·       Everything your Club needs to know, ready for the start of Tennis Season 2017/18

·       The more detailed Agenda is attached for your convenience

 

If delegates could please come prepared with an updated list of all your Club Contact details with Name, Email, Phone for all of your Committee positions, this will not only save you some writing at the Conference but ensure that after the Conference the HTA has a complete record of all your Club’s correct contact information for the coming season.

 

As always, as a courtesy to our guest speakers, the Committee and other Clubs, please ensure that you have two Club delegates in attendance from 7:15pm, thank you. Ideally one person from senior tennis and one from junior tennis. With your help to achieve full Club attendance we will ensure that we have a quorum and prevent the need to hold the meeting again. Many thanks.

 

Please disseminate this information as widely as possible at your Club.

 

Many thanks

Dear Tennis SA Presidents and Secretaries of Affiliated Associations, Clubs, Centres and Schools,


Our annual Club Development Conference is fast approaching and once again we are fully committed to hearing from each of you around how we work in a collaborative way with our valued clubs.  

This year there will be a specific focus on launching an action plan to enhance diversity in SA tennis by increasing female leadership and participation opportunities. Tennis SA is very keen to help support and collaborate with our Association and Club network to ensure we too can be one of the front runners in developing our females involved in tennis.  
 
Tennis SA has seen firsthand how the AFL has successfully raised the profile of females in their sport, both at a local level and a national level. This leads to increased visibility and enables access to different types of funding which ultimately feeds back to initiatives in clubs.
 
Therefore, we are specifically writing this letter to ask you all to do your best to attend our Club Development Conference. This year’s Club Development Conference details are as follows:
 
        Tennis SA Club Development Conference 
        8.30am – 3pm Sunday 30 July 2017
        Next Gen Health and Lifestyle Club, North Adelaide
 
Our conference will be one where engagement and contribution from you is very important, so we want to hear your views and ideas. Please contact Tennis SA on 08 7224 8100 or email sareception@tennis.com.au or via the online registration link to confirm your attendance.
 
Yours sincerely,
 
Kent Thiele
President, Tennis SA

and 

Steve Baldas
CEO, Tennis SA

Tennis Connect rewards

 News  Comments Off on Tennis Connect rewards
Apr 272017
 

 

Tennis SA is presently contacting clubs to encourage them to register for Tennis Connect rewards.  This year is likely to be the last time Tennis Australia offer this opportunity and it would be fantastic to have all our clubs take advantage of it.

 

Clubs will receive $5 for every member who held a membership at their club (as their primary place of play) between 1/7/2015 – 31/5/2017 who creates a Tennis Account, if they satisfy the following criteria:

  • Offer online memberships through My Tennis
  • Make membership packages available online (at least one must still be available as at 31 May 2017)
  • Activate online payment gateway
  • Provide organisation bank details
  • Accept the TennisConnect Rewards Terms & Conditions

Setting it up is easy and there is an ‘invitation’ that can be customised by the club and sent to members asking them to ‘join tennis’ and support their fundraising efforts.

http://support.tennis.com.au/articles/rewards-tool/

 

So far in the HTA these clubs are qualified to receive the reward:

Crafers, IBCG, Littlehampton, Mt Barker, Onkaparinga, Piccadilly, Stirling

 

I’m happy for clubs to contact me if they need assistance.

 

If you could promote to and encourage your clubs to take up this offer, that would be great.

 

Cheers

MT

Final call for anyone and everyone who is interested in the future of the HTA Doubles Competition to attend the meeting being held tomorrow night – Monday 27th March.

Updated Agendas will be available on the night.

HTA AGM, Grand Finals & UGLY Parents/Players!

 News  Comments Off on HTA AGM, Grand Finals & UGLY Parents/Players!
Mar 212017
 

On behalf of the HTA Management Committee may I congratulate all teams and players (whether you have made this season’s Grand Finals or not) on your contribution to Hills Tennis this 2016/17  season. Well played, we hope you enjoyed the season! Best of luck to all finalists!

Following the finals, the HTA AGM will be held on Monday, April 3rd 7:15pm for 7:30pm start at The Haus, Main St Hahndorf. Two delegates from each Club are constitutionally required to attend please. If you can’t attend, please nominate your proxy who will be attending. Quorum required. Notice of proxies and apologies to secretary ‘at’ hta.asn.au please. Meeting format will be short, sharp and shiny, Agenda to follow, with hopefully an opportunity for all to enjoy, during or afterwards, a coffee, cake or beverage in the care of our hosts at The Haus. The AGM is a great time to meet other Clubs and express both your gratitude and suggestions on Hills Tennis administration. If you would like to be more involved administering Hills Tennis, please make yourself known to someone on the Committee. Fresh ideas and energy are always welcome.

 

** New HTA Treasurer needed this year *** – if you are good with numbers, please consider doing a handover with Sue and assisting the HTA with our accounts. Work load is not immense and has been left in a well organised condition by Life Member Sue Hutson who stepped in to help out last year. If you have accounting or book keeping background that is great but anyone may apply and learn as they go.

 

Finally, it really is a fabulous time of year with a lot of attractive Hills men, women and juniors playing great tennis and having fun  however it is worth a quick note of warning to all participants and spectators, particularly at finals time – there have been recent isolated reports of  ‘UGLY’ parents or ‘UGLY’ player behaviour. It seems that a few people may be getting carried away with finals pressure. Tennis is fun, competitive but it is just a sport so, if you spot an “UGLY” person, please don’t hesitate to stand up on behalf of our Community and the HTA, involve your court supervisor or HTA rep and keep Hills tennis beautiful.  For the great majority ie those seeking to re-inforce good behaviour during the finals, you will have the full support of the HTA with actions that you may take in this regard. Many thanks and best wishes to all.

Best of luck!

A reminder about the important meeting that is being held next Monday night, 27th March for all interested parties to discuss the future of the HTA Doubles Competition. The HTA strongly encourages ALL current doubles players and any other interested stakeholders to attend this vital meeting. It is imperative that we get as much on-the-night input as possible, so that we can move forward in a positive and meaningful way that will meet the needs of current and future players. There will be a representative from Tennis SA present on the night to assist with our discussions.

 

Please email apologies to senior.activities@hta.asn.au. Proposals or suggestions for discussion points, should also be emailed beforehand to the SAC.

 

Please arrive at the HAUS in Hahndorf from 7.00 pm onwards – order a drink and maybe a bite to eat before settling in for a 7.30pm start.  We look forward to a strong showing of support and commitment from all doubles players.

Doubles Players – March 25th BE THERE!

 News  Comments Off on Doubles Players – March 25th BE THERE!
Mar 132017
 

Anyone interested in the future of the HTA Doubles Competition is urged to attend the meeting coming up on the 25th March, 7.30pm at the Haus in Hahndorf.

 

We want to get as many of the people who have played Doubles (either current and/or past players) to attend and to have input and to toss around ideas and suggestions about how we can make it better. While emailed suggestions are very much welcomed, emails don’t allow for the two-way on-the-spot conversations that are likely to trigger additional ideas and suggestions. So we are URGING all doubles players to attend this VITAL meeting. Don’t leave it to others alone to decide.

 

Suggestions so far include:

·         Moving to a split gender competition 4 Men or Women in a team. Three sets would be played each week. If possible schedule home matches together.

·         Move the competition to a Friday night – this would provide cooler conditions and would allow players to play both Fri & Sat competitions if they wanted to. May also allow people with Saturday work commitments to play.

·         Move to a 2 Men 2 Women team format

 

All attendees at the meeting will be given an opportunity to express feelings about how this season has gone, and will be encouraged to offer suggestions (no matter how small) on how we can move forward. Your opinion matters! If you don’t attend, then you won’t be able to actively contribute to a solution.

 

This is not an optional meeting – it’s a really important time to demonstrate that doubles players in the Hills want to actively contribute to the future of the competition.

 

Please email your ideas beforehand to senior.activities@hta.asn.au. That way, the SAC can collate suggestions and have them ready to present as starting discussion points at the meeting.

 

Apologies can also be emailed to the above address.

For Club Coaches – Tennis in Schools Workshop (A way for Your Club to grow player numbers)

 News  Comments Off on For Club Coaches – Tennis in Schools Workshop (A way for Your Club to grow player numbers)
Mar 102017
 

Dear Clubs

 

TA/TSA have asked that the attached information be passed to each Club and Club Coach.

 

A great way to build your Club player numbers is to have your Club Coach work via these programs with your local Schools to draw in new junior players to your Club, senior players and parents will typically follow their children and in turn help staff your Committee and senior player list.

 

If your Club needs more players or more Committee members or is looking to grow, please consider getting involved.

Weather info for finals

 News  Comments Off on Weather info for finals
Mar 082017
 

You might be looking at the forecast for the weekend and may be wondering what happens if it’s too wet to play finals. If you’re like me, you’ll be optimistic, and expect to play the whole match unhindered. However ……. if the weather does turn nasty, here’s an overview of what to do:

Rule 9.3 –

·         All players must attend and stay at the match (their sets will be forfeited if they don’t) until it is officially abandoned

·         The match can only be abandoned if both captains/supervisors agree to do so – this must be at least 30 minutes from Junior start times and 60 minutes from Senior start times

·         NO player can be forced to play on a slippery court

·         Captains/supervisors should use every endeavour to complete the match

Rule 5.7 –

·         If abandoned, matches need to be rescheduled – Juniors play at 9am on the Sunday following the match, Seniors can negotiate a suitable time between captains, but no later than the Wednesday following the match. All original team members to play rescheduled match. Previous scores stand.

 

Keep thinking positively!! And GOOD LUCK!
