Hi Myles

 

Thanks for making us feel welcome on Monday night, I enjoyed the trip out to Hahndorf!

 

I thought the session went well and I hope you did too. It was a great turn out by your clubs and seemed to be well received.

 

Attached is a copy of the Presentations

 

“Tennis Australia has a zero tolerance approach to any form of child abuse and is committed to ensuring the sport of tennis is a safe and friendly environment for children and young people. It is imperative that children and young people who access our activities, programs, events or services feel safe and supported.

 

As part of this commitment Tennis Australia and Tennis SA are providing child-safety workshops this week to educate clubs, coaches and associations on the new Safeguarding Children policies and resources.

 

While representation from a club is not mandatory at these sessions, Tennis SA will maintain a register of workshop participants as a record of which Clubs attended to listen to what is best practice in Safeguarding Children.

 

If you haven’t attended a child-safety workshop this week and would like to, please contact Darren Sahb (Tennis SA – Education Officer) to obtain a list of proposed dates in September.”

 

I have also attached the PowerPoint presentation from the Workshop as well as a very useful presentation I attended recently as part of Child Safe training through the Office of Recreation and Sport. .

 

Feel free to contact me to discuss this or any other matters in relation to tennis policies.

Good luck with the 2017/2018 season!

 

Cheers

 

Darren

Senior Doubles Players – your input needed!

 News  Comments Off on Senior Doubles Players – your input needed!
Aug 092017
 

This coming Season, Division 2 and below Doubles teams will have 4 players in them instead of the usual 8. The gender of those 4 players will not be defined – in other words, your team may be made up of 4 men OR 4 women OR any combination of either gender. What we need your input on, is how many sets you would like to play – either 3 or 4 during the afternoon. The sets rotations will be the same as for night tennis – 1&2 and 3&4 will play the first rotation. Then 1&3 and 2&4 will play a set. Then 1&4 and 2&3 will play together. If players are keen to play a fourth set, there will be a repeat of the 1&2 and 3&4 combination as the last set of the day.

 

If you are intending on playing doubles this season, and you are keen to play Division 2 or lower, please click here to go to a super-quick survey that will allow you to have your say on how things will be.

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

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!
