Renovations POSTPONED

Renovations POSTPONED

UPDATE – MTC open in 2017!


As some of you may have heard there is a possibility that our facility will be undergoing renovations for the entire 2017 tennis season.  The Town cannot confirm if the proposed budget has been approved until early in the New Year. We are very thankful that the Town has taken our concerns about our courts seriously and seem prepared to make a major investment in tennis in Milton.

The preliminary plan is that all 8 courts will be reconstructed, not just resurfaced, and that the work will rectify the issues we have been having with the court surface. As mentioned, it is estimated that the work will require the full 2017 year to complete cancelling all programs for the year. While you may have many questions, at this point we do not have any more information than has been provided in this note. We will make sure updates are provided as they are received.

Sincerely ,

Milton Tennis Club Executive

Sadly, we don’t have enough teams entered to run our annual Belinda Kuipers MTC fundraising tournament in 2016. It’s with mixed emotions that we cancel for July 23 on what would have been Belinda’s birthday. Pictured here are the finalists from our 1st tourney in 2010. Many thanks to Jeff Truswell for his never ending support of Belinda’s Milton Tennis Club work! Remembering Belinda:

Opening Day

Opening Day

Opening Day became Opening Night this year! Good call on trusting the weather forecast and moving it from today (it’s raining) to last night (when the sun was shining on us). The weather was gorgeous. The Club was busy! We had music – thanks Kevin. We had the BBQ going – thanks Dave and Gabor. The courts were packed with activities – thanks Coach Andre and helpers. Our juniors are looking STRONG! Thanks to all the volunteers (especially our Social Director, Abegail) who made our first social event of the season such a success.

Ranking System Challenge

Ranking System Challenge

Introducing a new ranking system for members that has nothing to do with your level of play!! Members earn points by volunteering, playing in our tournaments, joining House League, participating in social events and so much more.

Points are added up monthly and posted in the Clubhouse. At the end of season the top two Adult members and the top two Junior members get prizes!

You don’t have to be the best tennis player to finish at the top of these rankings. Each time you participate or join an activity you earn points. Volunteer, play, come to a pot luck, have some fun – you could be our winner!!!

 

Our New Website

Our New Website

Milton-tennis-club

Hello from Lisa Traverse, the PR Director for the Club. You will see that this is a brand new website. I’ve created this site myself using WordPress, copying most of the content from our old site. It’s been a slog, this blog! However, I am pleased to see it go live. I am sure that you will all see errors. Please do let me know what you find so I can fix it.

I hope you will enjoy the new site. It’s Responsive so it should change based on whatever device you use to look at it. In other words, if you are on your phone it will look just as good as if it’s on your PC.

If you have any pictures you would like to share, please do send them to me. We have added a photo gallery.

Enjoy the new site!

Lisa
