President’s Message – End of Season 2017

EXCITING NEWS – THE SCARBOROUGH TENNIS FEDERATION HAS AWARDED THE WEST ROUGE TENNIS CLUB THE
“2017 CLUB OF THE YEAR”!


The outdoor tennis season for the Summer of 2017 is now over. We have had our last club championship match, the STF
competitive league ended in August with all three teams ending up in the top 3 teams of their divisions, and the House Leagues
ended in mid-September. The Year End Party, Awards Night and AGM on October 18 was the final event of the season. Look for
our first event of the 2018 season, the Wine and Cheese/Spring General Meeting - invitations will be issued in late January.

The tennis season may be over BUT WHAT A YEAR IT WAS! Yes there were a few rainouts during the summer months but
September and October more than made up for that with the warm, dry wave. And the West Rouge Tennis Club was named 2017
Club of the Year by the Scarborough Tennis Federation. This was for our great programming, our community outreach to
encourage the growth of our sport, our efforts to develop our tennis playing members, our facilities’ maintenance and the
perception of our club in the community. This is not to mention our excellent social events that complement the tennis events and
the high participation rate of our members in all of these as well as in the operating of the club. Thanks to everyone for making
this possible.

I particularly want to thank the 2017 Executive and General Committee who is the most committed and devoted group you can
imagine!

Executive Committee (Elected):
Past President: Colin Broughton
Secretary: Fiona Wissborn

Without the leadership and support of this great group of people, the West Rouge Tennis Club could not exist as it is.
