One more step along the way for tennis club

from w
Today was the launch of the East Geelong Uniting Tennis Club relocation to the Geelong Council Breakwater site to share a clubroom with a cricket club and be able to use three blue courts. It has been a cloudy, sometime rainy day, but we managed to perform the launch speeches and a prayer by the club president Rev Sani before afternoon tea inside the clubroom, then some of the lads had a game or two as the sun came out.  It was an important occasion marking the end of the difficult and painful process of finding a new venue for the teams because the Denman Street site was sold beneath our feet to help recover money lost in a venture of the Uniting Church Synod in Melbourne.  We did protest strongly with attention to the fact that this

is a community service and missional, but to no avail.  Anyway, our players and especially Mr Neil Lamond moved on with the process of emptying the clubroom to relocate.  We hope in the future for another court to be built, and the clubroom extended to accommodate our tennis club for the summer season. Meanwhile cricketers are having a break so that's good.  Here are some photos from this afternoon.
