Supporters turn up for Weed, Feed and Play night

February 24, 2010

What a turn out, organisers expectations far exceeded! These words expressed what happened on Sunday Night. The Tennis Action Group organised a Weed, Feed and Play night. The idea was to get a few players and supported down to the courts to help Tony Miller and Gary Foster with their job of cleaning the courts and preparing them to a suitable standard for play.

What happened?
55, yes that is right 55 players and supporters turned up to help, what a community role out! Everyone pitching in to help and the result; first four courts are now weed free and all in under 45minutes! The Lions Club turned up as well and through their generosity cooked up a sausage sizzle.

The players decided that the kids should be feed first which didn’t work, so the adults had the first shot and reluctantly the kids followed.

Steve Adams addressed the Tennis Action Group thanking them for their attendance and effort in cleaning up the courts. He gave a run down of what the Group was about and how it formed. He said the group was formed to develop and support Tennis in Bingara with emphasis on community involvement at all levels and all age groups.

He also said that the first early steps were the most important; everyone should have a role however small. Everyone will have input and everyone will be listened to. He also said that that there is a meeting with Tennis NSW regional manager Ken Wray at 10am Monday.
