President’s Message


A Message from the President!

Welcome to all new and returning members of our club! This year will be an exciting one. Our tennis courts will get a complete makeover this spring, including removing tree roots, filling in bird baths, repairing all cracks, and resurfacing. Thanks to Yutaka and Rich for their hard work planning this project; and, thank you to the District of Saanich for their generous financial help.


Important note… yes, the tennis courts will still be available for play most of the time while the court improvements are underway.

I’d like to recognize all the hard-working members of the board that made last season memorable, and welcome our new directors, including myself, who will be working diligently on your behalf in 2017.

Thanks also to volunteers who come out and support the many programs available at STC. We look forward to continuing to grow our STC tennis programs for all ages and tennis levels within the community. As our newsletter and website describe in more detail, we have a number of great activities, events, lessons and socials coming up again this year.

I also urge you to renew your membership as soon as you can. This year is particularly important to do so to ensure we have enough funds to cover the renovation costs. If you have not yet had a chance to join or renew your membership you can do so online this year. For more information please visit our ‘membership’ page at

As a new member of the club’s executive, I’m eager to get feedback and comments from you about improving your experiences at the STC. Please contact me at . See you at the Club.
