EFLTC Newsletter

27th November  2020

From The President

We are blessed at EFLTC to have a smorgasbord of tennis options to explore. There’s always been Junior Club, Saturday afternoon and midweek social and pennants, but some of our more passionate members have been quietly adding more to the menu over the last few years, such as Monday morning Mums & Bubs, Monday and Tuesday Evening Social, Thursday Afternoon Open Elite, Friday Afternoon Men, Friday Family Twilight Tennis, Saturday Afternoon Hardcourt Social, and more. 

All open to our members of course, but also to casual non-members. And of course, there’s a plethora of ways to engage with Matt Bull and the Tennis Factory team for a more guided tennis experience.

If you’re talking to anyone looking for a tennis experience that works for them, let them know that there’s a good chance they’ll find something at EFLTC to suit their skill level, social interest and busy life.

It’s a moving feast that is making our Club stronger, more diverse and more vibrant.

Spread the word :)

UTR Tournament 

The East Fremantle junior tournament in December is an iconic West Australian junior tennis tournament that was run for over 40 years by the Marshall family. It was known for many years as the Coca-Cola Classic and had high participation numbers as there were many different divisions for differing levels. With the new UTR (Universal Tennis Rating) format we are running this year we believe we are again able to offer matches for all levels making it a very inclusive event for all juniors.

Our event at East Fremantle LTC runs from midday on Thursday 17th – Saturday 19th December and offers a minimum of 2 singles matches. Thursday 17th December is the last day of the school term and we are offering exemption to Year 6 students on that day with their first match being scheduled at 4pm.

There is a green ball event for 13&Under – ($40).
And a yellow ball event for 18 & Under -

There are two entry types for players ranked between 5.0 and 12.5 and then any players below 5.0 (first-time tournament players). The cost of the event is $50.
For more info on the event please click either the green ball event or yellow ball event link above or call Tennis Factory. If new to UTR and need clarification on which yellow ball event to enter or have any further questions on the event please feel free to email us.

And yes, we’re planning to have the Table Tennis Tables up again to keep the kids entertained between matches.
My First Tennis Matches at EFLTC 
'My First Tennis Matches' is an event for our young junior players to come and try their very first tennis matches.
