Reflections from the Club President - 2022 Season
I want to begin by thanking you for the support you have given to the Tecumseh Tennis Club this season. After two years of pandemic disruption, we successfully brought back social events, and league play resumed once again. Our Lakeshore League team laid waste to the rest of the teams in Division 4 placing first overall, and we saw an increase in attendance at all Club programs. Our Membership also increased to 592 Members, which means we are at or near capacity. And let’s not forget the weather. It certainly was a great summer for outdoor tennis.
Unfortunately, our courts are still our courts. Actually, they are in much worse condition now than what they were at the start of the season. The cracks on the courts will be repaired by the City at the start of next season. We received confirmation that court resurfacing and replacement lights for our Club are in the City’s proposed plans, but the approval must still go through their budget process.
Assuming everything is approved, we should have our new lights installed near the end of next season. Once the lights are installed, the courts can be resurfaced. If it is too late in the season, the resurfacing will be completed the following spring to avoid the possibility of winter damage.
Finally, I would like to thank the Board of Directors for all the work they have done this past year. On behalf of the Membership, I would also like to recognize the tremendous contributions made by our Club Pro, Steve Theodoropoulos, and his assistant coach, Damaris Aguilera. We look forward to welcoming them both back next season to provide tennis clinics and lessons!
