North Shore Open - Volunteers Please

The Northern Suburbs Tennis Association is holding a Gold Series Australian Money Tournament, the Love ‘n Deuce North Shore Open, from Thursday 16th to Sunday 19thDecember, offering a total of $17,000 in prize money across open and special singles and doubles events, making it the largest money tournament in New South Wales outside the Medibank International.  It will be held at Talus Street each day and at Tennis Valley on Thursday 16th and Friday 17th.   We are also offering an additional $2,000 for novelty events involving players and spectators, such as “Challenge the Champ”, “Fastest Serve” etc.

Due to the prize money and points on offer, we are expecting a large number of entries and therefore will require volunteers to assist with various tasks such as court curators, hostesses, court spotters, barbecuers, water fillers, player support, ball kids, etc, etc. 

Any time you could give to assist during the tournament would be greatly appreciated.  Volunteers will be required to meet at Talus Street on Sunday 12th December at 3pm for a briefing on allocated tasks.  If you are able to help out, we would welcome your response and the time you would be available during the tournament.

The Love ‘n Deuce North Shore Open promises to be a very exciting tournament and your support either as a player, volunteer or spectator would be much appreciated.

Last chance to pre-book for Sydney's latest LIVE MUSIC venue at your club!
Hi Joye,
This is your chance to not only support your club, but to enjoy a great night of brilliant LIVE MUSIC at our brand new venue - Eastern Lounge (in the Tennis Valley clubhouse) hosts its 2nd show on Friday November 19 from 7:30pm (doors open at 7pm)... and you, your family and friends are invited!
As part of the club's commitment to the local community, once a month our clubhouse now transforms into Eastern Lounge - a place for both emerging and established musicians to showcase their talent. Our Opening Night last month was a huge success with a crowd of around 160 enjoying some brilliant performances... and this month promises to be even bigger and better! A fanatstic line-up has been booked for this last show of the year, including:
Errol Renaud & Caribbean Soul - reggae/soca/calypso music at its best
Ella Freestone - a captivating new talent from the Northern Beaches
Bella Hemming - a 16 year old singing sensation with a quiver of quirky originals

Eastern Lounge is a wonderful community-based opportunity for quality musicians to entertain appreciative audiences. The clubhouse transforms to a warm and welcoming cafĂ©-style venue, it's the ideal place to relax with friends after a long week, or dance to the sounds of some of Sydney's best musicians.
Entry is $16 at the door, but you can pre-book now and pay just $14 per head! Bring your own snacks and enjoy 'an indoor picnic' but please note that Eastern Lounge is a licensed premises, so all drinks must be purchased from the bar.
See you on Friday 19th... and please, spread the word.
