Apollo Bay Tennis Club AGM

Presidents Report

 

ABTC continues to ensure that tennis is a viable sporting option for all ages & abilities within the community.

 

Competition:

2 Senior & 2 Junior teams represented The Bay in the 2021/22 Polworth Tennis League – most impressive number considering the commitment & dedication this requires. It’s also in stark contrast to the unfortunate trend of waning numbers that many clubs in the league are currently experiencing.

 

Seniors B Grade: Sea Eagles were knocked out in the semi-finals. King Parrots delivered a valiant effort each week.

Juniors: Div. 4 played fearlessly in their final but were outclassed on the day. Nonetheless an excellent effort that cements a strong platform for this year’s comp.

               Div. 3 – Congratulations for winning the Grand Final. Having moved up from Div 4, the team executed strong & consistent play, with impeccable sportsmanship that made that the club & coach Marvin proud. Well done.

 

Social Tennis continues to be a fixture on Mondays & Wednesdays. Between 4 & 12 players gather each week to have a hit regardless of inclement weather. Well done legends, & Bruce.

 

GORCAPA & and their plans to upgrade the Apollo Bay Recreation Reserve provided us with an opportunity to submit a Wish List that will potentially see our club’s infrastructure upgraded with the future of our historic clubhouse ensured. We continue to watch this space.

 

Coaching: We are so fortunate to have the commitment, skill & temperament of Marvellous Marvin. He is without doubt the main reason our Juniors dominate in the Polworth League. The standard he sets with technical acuity & good sportsmanship is exemplary. We look forward to seeing his Monday lessons continue & prosper.

 

Thank you to all parents, participants, & committee members.

Anna Dixon

Outgoing President (2020-) 2022
