Now that Autumn is upon us it is time to get the Club into full Swing, with the formal start to the season. This year the club is bigger and better than ever. With more play time than ever before!
We have our normal play days on a Saturday where we have increase to 6 courts from 12-1pm & 9 courts 1- 3pm from the 30th March. We do have 8 courts confirmed on a weeknight from 6th April. This is mainly a Wednesday or Thursday, but we do have an occasional Monday.
Please keep an eye on the Website / Facebook / Emails for weekly updates. We now have the calendar online in the website, which has all play days and times listed. This will be updated regularly with any changes. Weekly invites will still be sent for you to accept. We do have two weeks of at the end of April where we will not be playing due to the Auckland Masters.
Court and Shuttle Costs have risen have risen in 2017. But we are looking at keeping our costs to our members the same. This will be $50 members which we are asking of all regular players. Weekly cost to all members will still be $10. Non-Members will be able to play for 3 hours for $15.
We are also introducing a monthly plan payable only into the Clubs Bank Account by direct debit, this will be $60 a month and will cover all play sessions in the month. You must be a registered member to take advantage of this option and commit to a minimum of three months.
If you are registering for 2017 please can you fill in the registration form online and follow the instructions to pay the $50 dollars into the Club Bank Account. If you do want to take advantage of the monthly payment option please let me know.
Members that are using the monthly plan, will be able to turn up to club play and just put their name on the board without seeing the committee member on duty. All other 'joined' members will have a different coloured name tag, so you will have to pay the committee member before you name goes on the board.
I am also sending out a survey as some members as been enquiring about playing early in the morning as well. If we get enough interested we are looking at have courts from 6.30am - 8am on possible a Tuesday morning. This would only cost $5 per session. This will not be included in the monthly membership plan.
We also have 2 Tournaments planned for 2017 which more details will follow:
· Auckland Feathers v Pinoy Smashers Tournament Sunday 10th September
· Trans-Tasman Tournament Saturday 4th November
We are currently planning lots of social events. This will include a successful repeat of our Fabulous Bingo evening at Caluzzi Bar and Cabaret.
We hope as many of our regular players and those that have not played for a while will return and sign up for 2017. Any questions please ask.
