The GBJT annual Family Fun Day (club members only) for all family members (parents, players, siblings, etc) will be held at UQ from 2.30pm to 5.30pm on 15 June 2013.
This is a great chance for GBJT family members to come together and enjoy the opportunity to play some social tennis and catch up with other GBJT families! The day caters for all levels of tennis from beginners to advance with the focus more on enjoyment than competitive play. For this event, Saint Lucy Café will be providing catering and for those at the event last year will remember how enjoyable the food and drinks during the afternoon were. Some surprise awards and gifts will be made on the day!
An email will be sent out shortly to our members for this special event and hope you can join us on this day which is a most enjoyable event for all.
Season 1, 2013 - Finals Day
03 Jun 2013
We had a great finals day on Saturday 1 June at both the Queensland Tennis Centre and UQ to finish season 1, 2013!
It was great to see the spirit and sportsmanship in which the matches were played. So many of the matches were very close with many winners determined on count-back or by 1 game reflecting how close each of the teams are! During the afternoon, players and parents enjoyed the BBQ and drinks followed by the presentation of trophies and awards to our players. Our annual singles tournament winners were presented with their perpetual trophy, followed by the team trophies and awards for sportsmanship and most improved. Our raffle was drawn at the end of the presentation with our winners as follows:
First Prize - James Sa, Second Prize - Anna Ruddell, Third Prize - Melissa Chapman
A special thank you to all our Replacement Contacts, Level Co-Ordinators and parents who helped out on the day with the set-up, BBQ, selling raffle tickets, etc. This support, together with the spirit and sportsmanship in which the players participate in our fixtures is what make GBJT the special club it is. Also thank you to our Sponsors - Head Sporting Products, UQ Sports and Saint Lucy Cafe.
We hold a free family fun day at UQ on 15 June from 2.30 to 5.30. This is a fun event for all family members which includes catering by ‘Saint Lucy’ and further details will be provided by email shortly.
