You know my dad pushed me to believe that I was going to be the best. I just never thought of life without tennis, even looking forward. - Andre Agassi

CEO Update Cont.. At Club level, I recently attended the official opening of the repaired and new Shirley Tennis Club courts. Mayor Bob Parker was on hand to provide the official opening. (see photo below) Shirley TC can be justifiably extremely proud of their success in recovering their facilities from the devastation of the earthquake. My massive congratulations go to the club for their efforts. I wish you a happy, safe and relaxing Christmas and New Year, and look forward to catching up with you in 2013. Warm regards, Neil Prior, CEO. Tennis Canterbury

FUN TENNIS FACTS Wimbledon is the only major tennis tournament still played on grass. Ancient Greeks and Romans used their bare hands to play a precursor of lawn tennis, called 'jeu de paume', (game of the palm) by the French. The US Open Trophy made by Tiffany & Co. Love" is the word when the score is zero - or goose egg - because it sounds like the French word for "egg": l'ouef.

Tennis News Alistair Beatson of the Elmwood Tennis Club, last month celebrated 70 years of continuous membership. Alistair joined Elmwood on the 1st of October 1942 as an 11 year old and progressed through the club playing both junior and senior interclub at a high level. Alistair joined the club committee in 1952 being the youngest ever to achieve the honour and was instrumental in building the new clubhouse and converting the courts from asphalt to porous concrete, which is the base under our Astro courts today. Alistair has never been a member of another tennis club although he has been a prominent figure within Canterbury Hockey; Alistair was the Chairman of the Canterbury Hockey Association for many years. Alistair is very much a stalwart of the Elmwood Tennis Club, a much loved figure and one who has continued to contribute to the club throughout the last 70 years.

Congratulations Alistair!

Riccarton Domain Tennis Club —100 Year Anniversary The Riccarton Domain Tennis Club is looking forward to the next season during which it will be celebrating its centenary. Its home for the last 100 years has been the Upper Riccarton Domain on Yaldhurst Road, where the iconic little clubhouse with the red roof has been sitting since it was relocated from Hororata School in the 1960's. Fortunately the clubrooms did not suffer any damage in the recent Earthquakes. The Earthquakes have however provided a real opportunity for the club to review its facilities and services. The Riccarton Domain Tennis Club is planning to install a new synthetic surface and floodlighting, rather than simply repairing the existing surface. The new multisport surface will be able to be shared with the neighbouring football club and it will ensure that the club will continue to grow and attract new members, both Senior and Junior. Not only is Riccarton Domain Tennis a friendly and welcoming club but it is one of the most ethnically diverse in Canterbury with a large range of nationalities in its rapidly growing membership. The expanding Junior membership is coached by Head Coach Stephen Davies and assisted by Ian Allso and Juan Quispe-Chavez. Riccarton Tennis provides both Senior and Junior interclub opportunities and social tennis on Saturday afternoons and Wednesday evenings. Those who are interested in being a part of the next 100 years of tennis at Riccarton Domain can email , or contact Bryan Clarke on 0211192682. You can also check out their Facebook page, or visit

Player Profile—Joseph Bray In a time when young players change clubs on a whim, Joe Bray of Waimairi Tennis Club is the exception, having belonged to and played for the club since the age of eight. Indeed as a member of Waimairi’s Premier Men’s team who were runners up in the Premier competition, he was one of three senior players who had played junior tennis for the club. Founding his game on a strong forehand and great down the line backhand, Joe is at home on the baseline pounding groundstroke winners off both wings. Joe has had a successful career to date since entering the Regional squads in 2005 and winning his first Canterbury title at the age of nine. He has represented New Zealand in both the 12’s and 14’s age group teams, was a finalist at the 14’s National Hardcourt and Indoors competitions in both the singles and the doubles and in 2010 won the National singles title in the 16’s at the National Indoors.

In 2011, Joe made the semi-finals of the singles in the National 16’s and was a representative in the National teams event team. Currently a pupil at Christchurch Boys’ High, he led the team to the final of the National Secondary Schools final against Tauranga Boys’ in April this year. He is, like many of our players, currently viewing his options for collegiate tennis in the States. We look forward to seeing Joe represent our club again this year and wish him every success for the season.

Christchurch City Council Christchurch City Council works with Tennis Canterbury to assist them in the delivery of sport. As with all regional sporting bodies Council maintains a good relationship to provide support in a number of different ways in the delivery their sport. Keeping the community physically active and providing a healthy life style for city residents is an important aspect of the Christchurch City Council Recreation and Sport Unit. Christchurch City Council supports Tennis Canterbury through providing funding for the delivery of their interclub competitions and community tennis programmes. Council also provides funding at a local level to a number of clubs and leases reserve land to a number of clubs around the city at a peppercorn rental. Council and Tennis Canterbury have certainly had a long term relationship at varying degrees over the years. Most recently with the earthquake issues facing sport in the city this relationship has been closer and more important than ever. For the City Council this relationship means that Christchurch has a strong and well run organisation able to deliver high quality tennis programmes in the city. By having healthy and active sporting organisations operating in the City it offers the residents more opportunities to become active an lead a healthy life style. It also means that Christchurch and Canterbury are represented strongly and positively when athletes are competing outside the region. For many years Canterbury have provided the City with a regional tennis centre which has been a great asset to the city.

2012/2013 Interclub Update—November ASB SENIOR INTERCLUB The ASB Senior Interclub season entries saw an additional 15 teams across all grades accepted into the competition which was very exciting and created a Division 5 and Division 6 Men and also a Division 3 Mixed grade. The introduction of the new junior eligibility rule has seen our aspiring juniors being eligible to play senior tennis, challenging them to a higher level of tennis and court awareness. Both Premier Women’s and Men’s teams are playing at 2.30pm each Saturday and clubs are hosting with after match refreshments available promoting top tennis to club members and team supporters.

JUNIOR INTERCLUB Junior Interclub has an additional 6 teams entered into the competition and Challenger grades are all playing on a Friday night, a change that has been well received by clubs who provided the extra courts and tapped into school courts where possible. A big thank you is extended to all involved who have assisted in this transition from Sunday morning to Friday night.

FORREST WINES WOMEN’S TENNIS LEAGUE (Formerly Mid Week Ladies) The summer competition saw 8 entries in the Premier grade, Cashmere Tennis Club hosting this and ‘A’ grade with 7 entries, hosted by Burwood Park both played on a Friday morning.

Country Tennis Update Canterbury Country Tennis and Browning Shield For the last few seasons the Sub– Associations trophy has seen a decrease in the number of games played, culminating in only one match taking place last year. So at a recent country meeting there was a will from all the committee that that situation had to be addressed. To this end it was decided to play the round-robin event over the weekend of March 23-24 at the Mid Canterbury Association courts in Ashburton. Other Sub-associations also combined, leaving Malvern and Ellesmere to make up the four teams competing. Up to now the shield was played on given Sundays throughout the season. But under the round-robin system, weather problems, travel constraints and other family and work commitments, it was difficult for a lot of players to compete. The Browning Shield was donated by Mr R Browning, secretary of Canterbury Lawn Tennis to be competed for by the then sub-associations which included Banks Peninsula, who then disbanded in the early 1990's being replaced by the West Coast in 2002. It was first competed for in the 1936-37 season with North Canterbury being the original winners. For many years each team consisted of 12 men and 12 women but now consist of 6 men and 6 women. Of course, in previous years it was a great social occasion to meet up with players from the other sub-associations annually at these games. Whilst today there are so many tournaments around where players can meet and greet more regularly. The shield has been competed for 72 times with the following results - Malvern winning 23 times, Ellesmere 16, Mid Canterbury 15, North Canterbury 12, Hurunui 6 times. In the meantime the sub-associations club competitions are well under way with updated results being published in the next issue of this magazine. Ian Jones President Tennis Canterbury Region Inc.

These discussions with the Council relate specifically to an particularly the Indoor Centre and area of land known as Nga Puna Wai, which is situated at Wigram to the immediate south of the Canterbury A&P Showgrounds area. There is a very large area of land available there for various sports which require large areas to relocate and the Council is keen to establish a sports hub in that area which would potentially accommodate not only tennis but a number of other sports.

Wilding Park Update

The Board has also had discussions with the Hagley Park Tennis Club regarding the possibility of relocating some of the Wilding Park facilities at the Hagley Park Tennis Club site. However, the timeframes involved in either proposal are still quite lengthy with various planning and consent issues still to be resolved. So unfortunately there is no immediate light at the end of the tunnel. It should be emphasised however that at this point, the Board has not made any final decisions as to what it will do and whether it will reinstate Wilding Park either in part or in whole, whether it would wish to relocate some or all of the Wilding Park facilities or whether a combination of these alternatives might be the best. It is intensely frustrating to the Board and to Tennis Canterbury that progress is so slow but it is unfortunately a factor of the world we live in and the rebuild of Christchurch generally. While progress is slow, there continues to be a huge amount of work being done to progress either the re-development of Wilding Park or its re-location for the benefit of the tennis playing community of greater Christchurch. Lindsay North Chairman Wilding Park Foundation Incorporated

Game Development Update WOW, what a busy last few months it has been between issues! The development team has been flat out working on both the Interclub competitions, introducing the Interclub Handbook and preparing the 2013 Coach Education Calendar amongst other things. Interclub Handbook The interclub handbook is a brand new initiative here in Canterbury. The aim of the booklet is to empower the players, parents and managers, giving them greater ownership over their tennis. The book provides all teams with one document that lets them record all the team information, the contact details and to track all results. It is also outlines all the rules and finer details surrounding interclub, tournaments and all the on court aspect of tennis in Canterbury. Perhaps the biggest change that the Interclub Booklet has introduced is the online capture of results. Each team captain/manager now has the ability to enter results online, instantly updating all the points’ tables. This has simplified the administration of these competitions for junior administrator’s city wide. Player Development Program and Parents Meeting Update A parents meeting was held 8th November to provide parents with more information about the Development program, the benefits of being apart of a TNZ endorsed program, and not to mention the South Island’s only regional program. Initial selection letters have now been sent to the top four juniors in each age group. There is also the opportunity for 2 juniors in each age group to be granted a ‘wildcard’ selection. Juniors who want to be considered for a wildcard should be aiming to play as much tennis as possible from now until January (especially the January nationals). If you have any questions about the structure, the selection policy or about attaining a wildcard please contact TCR Regional Head Coach, Matt Meredith, A copy of the 2012/13 coach structure can be viewed here Coach Development and TNZ Coach Registration We have recently confirmed the Coach Development Calendar. In 2013 we will be aiming to hold 9 Community Coach courses and 1 Assistant Junior Coach course. This year we are targeting for 135 participants across all courses. For more in formation on these courses please contact TCR Game Development Assistant, Angela Mitchell, Currently Canterbury has a total of 26 TNZ registered coaches, with another 3 in the process of becoming registered. This is essential for coaches and clubs as it put safe guards in place for both parties. It also ensures that coaches have a current first aid certificate, a recognized qualification and that they have been police vetted.

If you have any questions about the Coach Registration process please contact Game Development Manager, Hamish Cain, Tennis in Schools Roadshow We are currently planning the implementation of the Tennis in Schools (TiS) Roadshow. The Roadshow will target schools who have not traditionally taken part in TiS but who do have a large school role and are located close to a tennis club. The Roadshow will offer a one off taster of the program, and will look to encourage future participation. This new initiative will roll out in term 1 of the 2013 school year and will target 14 schools and over 5,000 children! More information will become available in the new year. As always if you have any questions please do get in touch, or better yet, drop in to Z Energy Wilding Park and say hello. Hamish Cain Game Development Manager Tennis Canterbury

Representative Review Tennis Canterbury Region started the tennis season with two representative fixtures. The first was a Performance fixture versus Tennis Central and the second a Development fixture involving Christchurch juniors versus a combined Nelson Bays/ Marlborough TA team. Both fixtures were hard fought affairs. Both Canterbury and Christchurch teams won a number of match but fell short in winning the fixture.

Tennis Canterbury Region vs Tennis Central Region Sunday 23 September saw the first representative match of the season take place between Tennis Canterbury and Tennis Central. The Canterbury team had a big day ahead of them traveling to Wellington and back in one day. Departing at the crack of dawn the team arrived in Wellington just after 9am. It was clear as soon as the team stepped of the plane that they were in for a great day of tennis with perfect playing condition. It proved to be a very tough day for the Canterbury team with Central making the most of the home court advantage winning the 10′s, 14′s and 16′s age groups. The 12 age group saw Canterbury pull back a number of matches however, they couldn't close the gap with Central winning the fixture 44 – 26. Four Canterbury Players were unbeaten winning doubles, singles and reverse singles matches. These players being Dylan Heap – 12′s, Naynay (Tharupbhet Homkrun) -12′s, Charlotte Lee – 12′s and Michal Matson – 16′s. Congratulations to all the players who represented Canterbury with such pride. Thank you to Tennis Central for providing the transport and all on court aspects of this fixture. Thank you to the Tennis Canterbury coaches, Lynn O’Dell and Andrew Falck, the 10′s manager Nick Dean and all the parents who pitched in during the day.

Christchurch versus Nelson Bays/ Marlborough Tennis Association This was another tough assignment for the Christchurch team who had a number of new players who were representing Canterbury for the first time. This two day event was slightly disrupted with a wet start to Saturdays play, this did cause some delay but before long all matches were on court. At the end of the play both teams enjoyed a bbq before getting in some rest before the penultimate day of play. On Sunday it was decided to have a ‘shot gun’ or scheduled finish time and a allowed for a timely and meaningful prize giving. The Nelson Bays/ Marlborough team winning what was a highly competitive two days of tennis!
