Fast 4 Family Fun

Fast4 Family Fun Night


Saturday 2 March 2019 from 6.00pm


Hope Ward Tennis Club - Tweed St Cumberland Park


Cost: $10 per family, or $5 per single entrant.


BYO drinks and food, BBQ facilities available canteen will be open for soft drinks, snacks & ice creams.


Attention all players and families! Please come along to our Fast4 Family Fun Night for an excellent evening of entertainment, eating and (extremely gentle) exercise!

Participants will enjoy a number of random mixed and mixed-up doubles sets of a very quick 4 games played under Fast4 rules, with prizes for those who win the most and/or least number of games. This is not limited to Junior and Senior players: we’d love to see parents and siblings join in and have a go. All you need is a pair of sandshoes, and a racquet if you have one (the older the better), otherwise we’ll supply one.


Haven’t picked up a racquet for years or player tennis ever? No problem: embarrassment will be encouraged, and even rewarded!


Those who can’t be cajoled into having a hit should still come along to watch and enjoy a social night of laughs to celebrate the end of the minor round.


To assist Heepsy with planning the tennis format, could you please RSVP to by FRIDAY 22ND FEBRUARY with the names of players participating from your family.

3.  Les Tapp InterAssociation Tournament

The above tournament was held at Kensington Gardens Lawn Tennis Club from the 8th-10th January.  Hope Wardians Jack (Boys Open) and Tom (12U Boys)
met the selection criteria and were available to participate.  Congratulations to both boys on representing our Association (SDTA) in their respective age groups.  I also want to acknowledge Sam who also met the selection criteria and was available to play but unfortunately SDTA was unable to field a team in his age group.

Our Club Tournament is open to all HWTC members and, for Juniors, matches will be held on Sunday 17/2 with finals being played on Sunday 3/3.  The tournament fee is included in your subs so I encourage all HWTC Juniors to enter.  It's a fun way to get some extra match practice and test your tennis skills against your fellow Hope Wardians.  Further details and entry forms will be emailed soon.
