We have reached out to several members about participating in the renovation committee which will be announced shortly.

The contractor will be starting at the club the week of Dec 15th with preliminary work such as the installation of the trailers and preparation for demolition.

Any remaining items at the club will be dealt with in the near future.  If there is anything that you would like to save please let us know as soon as possible!

Message from President Christopher Duque

Thank you to everyone who attended and participated in this year’s AGM.  We had an outstanding turnout and the lively discussions and ideas put forth by the membership, showed the passion and caring we all feel for our club.  Your feedback and suggestions will assist the new board in continuing to work to make improvements, and you can count on us to take each recommendation seriously.

We would like to thank Dot Knight and Anne Luxon for all their efforts to compile the minutes from the AGM. The minutes and documents presented at the AGM have been posted on the club’s website and inside the clubhouse.

We would also like to thank Ron Mauro for volunteering to chair the AGM and doing a great job of leading us through the full agenda. In appreciation for his dedication to the club, the Aldershot Tennis Club has made a donation to Tennis Canada in his honour. 

Included in the President’s report is an amendment to Oliver’s comments regarding communication directed towards his family.
