From The President

Club Champs Have Arrived!

After months of planning, “Wimbledon of the South” starts tomorrow at EFLTC.
 of the world’s best players, and their entourages, have arrived in Perth, have been practicing hard, and are raring to put on a great show for what is expected to be a record crowd and international TV audience. The draw and match times can be viewed here.
The Tournament Director on Saturday is Tony Smith, and on Sunday will be Simon Smith and/or Narelle Hemsley.
They will provide players with balls, help you find a court, and take your scores.
Please remember that there are Millions of dollars in prizemoney, world ranking points and potential endorsements at stake, so thrown racquets, swearing and bad line-calls are completely understandable.  As Social Tennis will still be on, I only ask that, if you must yell obscenities at your player box, please do it in Russian or Serbian.
Have fun!
