NEWSWORTHY! Reward our club by creating an account
Recently you would have received an email from Tennis Australia asking you to create an account. This is part of the “Tennis Connect” initiative which can earn the club much needed funds. Simply create an account (if you don’t already have one) and then nominate CLW as your primary place of play for tennis. Each member who completes this before the end of February will earn the club $5. This will also give you access to player results and a range of other services and information from Tennis Australia.
So please help the club by following the instructions in the email sent.
Thanks in anticipation of your support – Leigh Aitken – President
