Aurora Community Tennis Club
Opening Day Celebration
Saturday, May 25th
9:30 am - 2:30 pm
This is a special day for all ACTC members. Let's greet and celebrate our new season with a fun day of socializing, food and tennis.
The Board of Directors and other ACTC volunteers will host the event. There will be a bar-b-cue, snacks, drinks, new racquets curtesy of Straightlines and most of all a fun social day of tennis.
If you would like to see a great example of the volunteer spirit of our community club, have a look at these pictures of ACTC members cleaning up the winter run off mess that happens every year on court # 3.
I look forward to seeing old and new members on Saturday, May 25th. Please bring your family members along as well.

Happy Spring ACTC members,
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I extend a warm welcome to you as we begin our 2013 season. It has been a lengthy winter and now it’s time to play tennis.
The courts are dry and clean, the nets are up and the water should be running in the washrooms in the next few days. Our online registration is open so if you haven’t registered please visit the site and follow the instructions. You can download the 2013 registration form and mail it in if you like. Most of our membership is using the online registration which we prefer because it ensures accurate information and we can keep you informed about key dates and club events.
We have some announcements for you and a few key dates that you can put in your calendar.
The 2013 Board of Directors elected at the December 2012 Annual General Meeting are as follows:
Brent MacKinnon – President
Zoran Kulina – Secretary
Kevin Gage – Treasurer
Bill Reid – Maintenance/Facilities Director
John Stephenson – Play Director
Katherine Conway – Communications Director
Colin Brown – Director at Large
The Inter-County Tryouts will be held on Saturday April 27th at ACTC.
B team 11am-1pm; C team 1pm –3pm - Sunday (rain delay) same times.
The IC tryouts are conducted by a Board authourized panel comprised of one Board member (Play Director), the ACTC Club Pro and the captain from last year’s team. Once the team is formed, the players on each team will elect or re-elect the captain.
Intercounty team practice times are as follows:
B team: Sundays, 11am-1pm
C1 team: Saturdays 11am-12pm
C2 team: Saturdays 9am-11am (or Sundays 9am-11am) but pending captain’s preference
The Tournament dates will be posted on our Website, please make regular visits to keep updated on schedule changes and announcements;
House Leagues are filling up fast. Please get yourself registered so you won’t be disappointed. Kevin Gage and Jamie Danziger will be our coordinating again this year. We really are appreciative of their volunteer efforts.
Unfortunately we will not have a summer student employed as club house and court monitor this year. We are asking all members to do all they can to keep our clubhouse and courts clean. It will only take a little bit to bring trash in from courts and tidy up the club house at the end of your game. If we all do a little bit to care for our club, everyone will benefit.
Our traditional opening day celebration will be on Saturday, May 25th this year. This is the time to connect with old and possibly new friends. The Board of Directors will host a free bar-b-cue and organize a day of fun social tennis for everyone, regardless of tennis experience and ability. Straightlines will be on hand with the latest tennis racquets you can try out. Who knows, you may find that magical racquet that improves your game 100%.
That's all for now folks, see you on the courts,
Board of Directors
