Dear Members, Players and their families, past and present,
2020 will mark the 100th year of Griffith’s longest running sporting event, the MIA Open Tennis Tournament. The tournament began in 1920, and has run every year since – we’d like to celebrate this Milestone year by remembering the tournament’s rich history, acknowledge the importance and contribution that events like this have in a community, and of course by making the 2020 MIA Open the best yet!
We are inviting anyone who is interested in participating in the planning and organisation of the event to join us for the:
Initial Event Planning meeting When: 8pm Tuesday 11th February Where: Griffith Tennis Clubhouse – Noorilla St
We are also inviting anyone who has memorabilia of past events to please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you! Contact: Robyn Meehan 0429 487 472, or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please share this with anyone you think may be interested!
It’s that time of year again folks – the annual Griffith Spring Fest is almost upon us, running from Sunday, 13 October 2019 to Saturday, 26 October 2019.
We need your assistance to assemble the Griffith Tennis Club Giant Tennis Racquet from 7am Sunday the 13th October. Everyone is welcome (there’s heaps to do) and It’ll be great fun for the little ones. All helpers will need to wear closed shoes, and bring a bucket –
It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Tom Condon.
Tom has been one of, if not the greatest, supporter of tennis in the area – a tireless supporter of the Griffith Tennis Club, a keen player his whole life, constant tournament sponsor and Life Member.
Tom’s love of tennis was infectious, and will live on in the hearts and racquets of his children, their children and beyond. Tom was also immortalised in 2013 with the unveiling/naming of Court 8 – the Tom Condon court.
Our thoughts go out to Tom’s Wife, Jan, and their children who were with him at the end.
A public service will be held on Saturday 17th August at 11am in the Church of St Therese, Yenda, followed by light refreshments at the Yenda Diggers Club.
Another Queen’s Birthday weekend has come and gone, and with it the 99th MIA Open Tennis Tournament which could not have happened without the massive contribution from our Volunteers, Staff and of course, our Sponsors.
