Club is gear­ing up for an­niver­sary

Central Telegraph - - SPORT -

Plan­ning is un­der­way with the Cal­lide Val­ley Ten­nis As­so­ci­a­tion gear­ing up to cel­e­brate its 90th an­niver­sary next year.

Cel­e­bra­tions will be held on March 30 with an open in­vi­ta­tion to all past and present play­ers to at­tend a din­ner at the RSL.

The din­ner will be fol­lowed by a ten­nis day at the courts on March 31.

The as­so­ci­a­tion is cur­rently com­pil­ing a his­tory book which will be printed early next year.

Those in­volved in the pro­duc­tion are keen to re­ceive any pho­tos de­pict­ing play­ers, courts or build­ings from the as­so­ci­a­tion’s past, along with mem­o­ra­bilia, tour­na­ment win­ner cards (or en­graved tro­phies), old score sheets or team lists.

All as­pects of ten­nis will be cov­ered in the book, in­clud­ing Tues­day Ladies and Ju­nior ten­nis.

The as­so­ci­a­tion would also like to in­clude a sec­tion of ten­nis mem­o­ries from present or past play­ers and a sec­tion of amus­ing in­ci­dents that are re­lated to ten­nis, ei­ther on or off the court.

They would also like ex­tra in­for­ma­tion in the fol­low­ing ar­eas: ten­nis be­tween 1941-1946, ladies so­cial ten­nis in Biloela 60s–mid 70s, names of Mon­day and Tues­day ladies night fix­tures play­ers (late 70s–90s).

If any­one has a story to share, any mem­o­ra­bilia, or would like to spon­sor the book, please con­tact Sharon Swift on 0407 024 032 or email swifty2@hot­mail.com or phone Clarice White on 4995 1128.
