Stratford Press - - Puzzle Page! -

Mid­hirst Ten­nis Club: By Mar­i­anne Drum­mond The Mid­hirst Ten­nis Club ac­cepted the res­ig­na­tion of its long-serv­ing pres­i­dent Liz O’Sul­li­van dur­ing its re­cent AGM.

Liz has served as pres­i­dent for over 20 years and was on the com­mit­tee prior to that, and felt the time was right for some new blood. The club thanked Liz for her hard work in re­lo­cat­ing the Mid­hirst Ten­nis Club to the Mid­hirst Do­main as well as fundrais­ing and or­gan­is­ing the lay­ing of new courts, and or­gan­is­ing both pri­mary and A grade teams among many other du­ties.

With hus­band Kevin, the O’Sul­li­van fam­ily has been the back­bone of the club, with the en­tire fam­ily par­tic­i­pat­ing in com­pet­i­tive ten­nis for many years. Liz made hun­dreds of club sand­wiches which all play­ers en­joyed. Kevin and Liz, thank you so much for ev­ery­thing that you have done for our ten­nis club, and we look for­ward to Liz’s con­tin­ued par­tic­i­pa­tion.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Sharon Beck­ett who has taken over the pres­i­dency. We know you will do a great job and give as much com­mit­ment as Liz.

The Mid­hirst Ten­nis Club will have three teams en­tered in the Taranaki Mid­week women’s com­pe­ti­tion, and will recom­mence night ten­nis at the be­gin­ning of No­vem­ber.

■ Peo­ple can par­tic­i­pate in night ten­nis, ei­ther as an in­di­vid­ual or as a team en­try. Please ring Mar­i­anne on 06 7628757.
