Gather up your teammates, friends, neighbours and family for a fun afternoon on the court and help us raise much needed funds for the bushfire recovery efforts.
This year the annual Altona Tennis Club Open Day on Sunday 2 February will have a special focus on raising funds for bushfire relief.
Join the fun Fast4 fundraising tournament, enjoy the sausage sizzle and delicious homemade afternoon tea for a gold coin donation, or enter the Fastest Serve Competition (for both Juniors and Seniors) with a gold coin donation. All funds raised will go directly to Tennis Australia’s Aces for Bushfire Relief.
You will also be able to try lots of different tennis formats for both kids and adults with free Hot Shots, Cardio Tennis and plenty more on offer from our coaching partner Vida Tennis.
Plus, there will be a jumping castle for the kids and after 5pm the club will be open for a BYO drinks and nibbles social to coincide with the Australian Open Men’s Final on TV.
Fast4 fundraiser – how it works
The Fast4 fundraiser is open to both members and non-members and we would love to see as many participants on the courts as possible.
Entry is $20 per pair per section payable in cash on the day and the online registration form (below) must be submitted before 5pm on Friday 31 January.
The Men’s and Ladies tournament will run concurrently, followed by the Mixed/Family tournament. Players are encouraged to enter more than one section (ie: Ladies and Mixed/Family).
If you do not have a partner but you are keen to play, drop us a line indicating which category you would like to play in and we will do our best to pair you up: firstname.lastname@example.org
Calling all keen bakers!
We also need all the keen bakers to roll up their sleeves and contribute towards a yummy afternoon tea for a great cause. If you are keen to donate a delicious home-baked goodie, drop us a line: email@example.com
If you aren’t a baker but you’re good on the BBQ, let us know as we need volunteers for the sausage sizzle too.
