So, how’s your backhand?
Last weekend, the Tewantin Tennis Club completed its annual Club Championships. The event was sponsored by the Tewantin Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank and manager, John Hague was on hand to present the winners with their prizes.
Club secretary, Jason Reynolds said the club greatly appreciated the ongoing sponsorship of the Bendigo Bank which was in keeping with their promotion as a community bank.
“Tewantin Tennis Club was started in 1980 by a small group of tennis enthusiasts and it has been growing ever since. It’s because of support from sponsors such as our local Community Bank branch we can offer tennis at such a great local facility. Currently there are approximately 250 members, including a thriving junior section,” Jason said.
Sharing the local bank’s delight at being a valued sponsor of the club, John Hague his thoughts at the sponsorship finds being used so quickly and to great effect.
‘‘Our Tewantin branch proud to have assisted Tewantin Tennis Club with a few projects over the last 10 years. The ‘Lobster’ ball serving machine and ride on mower to keep the surrounding grounds looking neat and tidy spring to mind,” John said.
“It’s great to continue supporting a club that’s so active in our community and that’s what we’re all about too. The more people get behind our Community Bank, the more we’re able to get behind local sporting clubs like this one and give Tewantin a real say in its future,” John added.
Tewantin Tennis Club also participates in junior, senior and veterans’ competitions on a regular basis and is always looking for new starters to join in. New members are also welcome along with anyone who wishes to play at any of their social events, or to just hire a court for an hour or two.
The club is located towards the rear of the Noosa Sports Complex, McKinnon Drive, Tewantin (on the road to Boreen Point). Since September 2007 Tewantin Tennis Club has been the chosen venue for the Tennis Queensland Seniors Tournament, attracting many visiting interstate and overseas players as well as local interest.
