HTA Needs You!

 News  Comments Off on HTA Needs You!
Apr 112019
 

Image result for we need youAfter serving the HTA for 4 years, our wonderful President and awesome Secretary Myles & Tracy are stepping down from their roles. This leaves both of these positions vacant, and we’d like you to think about who at your club might be a suitable nominee. Neither job is onerous or particularly large – please consider whether you or someone you know would be interested in taking on either of these roles. They would be well supported by the existing committee and sub committees.

 

President:

  • Preside at Management Committee, AGM and SGM meetings
  • Represent the Association at local, regional, state and national levels – rarely
  • Facilitate Association activities – in conjunction with the already fantastic sub committees
  • Ensure plans and budgets for the future are carried out in accordance with the wishes of Clubs

 

Secretary:

  • Prepare agendas and minutes for Association and Management committee meetings consultation with the Chairperson of that meeting.
  • Arrange venue, date and times for Association meetings
  • Maintain a register of all affiliated club details – personnel and meeting attendance
  • Maintain electronic files

 

Please consider putting your hand up for one of these roles – the commitment is not great, but the outcomes are fantastic! Please advise the HTA of any ideas or nominations you may have for potential candidates – send them through to secretary@hta.asn.au.

 

Can’t wait to welcome some new people to the fold.

Grand Finals – how the weather might affect you

 News  Comments Off on Grand Finals – how the weather might affect you
Mar 292019
 

Image result for tennis feverThe big day of the season is FINALLY HERE!!

 

While the weather should be kind to us tomorrow for our Grand Finals, there’s just a couple of things to note, to ensure the smooth running of our Grand Finals. If it does turn out to be wet:

 

  • Please make every effort to complete the match on Grand Final Day. HTA strongly encourages all teams to persevere in order to finish Grand Finals matches, to avoid the inconvenience of having to complete the match on a different day.
  • Rule 13.2 of our Rules of Match and Play contains information about abandoned finals matches. Every club should have a copy of the Rules at their venue if needed.
  • No person can be forced to play on wet or slippery courts. 

 

The Hills Tennis Association wishes all teams participating in tomorrow’s Grand Finals a wonderful day of tennis and the best of luck!

Another HTA tennis season is coming to close. Hopefully all players have enjoyed the unique tennis experience that we enjoy in the Hills Tennis Association – sociable, friendly, yet fiercely competitive with the best afternoon teas on offer!! It may not be perfect, but HTA is one of the strongest Associations in the state and it’s something we should all be very proud of.

 

Below is a summary of the Grand Finals matches that are happening next weekend at Onkaparinga, Mount Barker and Littlehampton clubs.

 

Come out and watch the top teams in each division tussle for that elusive title of “Premiers”! HTA Life Members (Angus Thompson – Anembo and Adrian Pobke – Onkaparinga) will be there and it’s a great time thank these two, plus all of our other life members who have helped shape and make our Assoc what it is today. Thanks guys – we wouldn’t be here today without you!

 

All the best for a great weekend of tennis.

The SAC is currently discussing possible venues for the Senior Grand Finals. If your club would like to be one of the clubs to host a Seniors Grand Finals match or matches, please get your Senior Coordinator to contact the SAC to express interest. There is not a lot of commitment required –

  • Ensure courts are clean and nets adjusted
  • Courts are open before 12.30 pm on GF day

Senior Order of Merit – forms here

 News  Comments Off on Senior Order of Merit – forms here
Feb 242019
 

SAC has recently discovered that coordinators with a gmail email address did not receive the most recent emails sent out. Here’s the email regarding Order of Merit lists for Seniors:  (apologies for any confusion)

 

You will need to submit Order of Merit lists for any of your teams that have a possibility of making finals – even if it’s not likely. If there is even a small chance that a team might make finals, an OOM form must be completed per team.

 

Attached you will find:

  • OOM Submission Trad – one of these to be completed for every trad team hoping to make finals.
  • OOM Submission Doubles – one of these to be completed for every doubles team (all doubles teams will play at least the first week of finals, as the competition will be split into 3 divisions for the finals series)
  • HTA Finals Permit Request form – one of these per club to be used for any player/s (including juniors) who did not meet the 2 finals eligibility requirements (played at least 5 matches in the team AND was nominated in the team) and who wish to receive a permit to play in a team for finals.

 

Please stick to the due date – no later than 12 noon on Sunday, 3rd March. Thanks guys, the SAC wishes you and your teams all the best for the finals.

 

Jo Casey & SAC
