Davisville AGM - Monday September 29
Our Annual General Meeting will take place this Monday at 7:00 at the Mt. Pleasant Rd. Baptist Church - 527 Mt. Pleasant Rd. (across from the Longest Yard.) At the meeting, we will hear reports from all of the executive on this year's activities, elect the new board for the 2015 season, and will discuss motions that will effect change at the club.
Motions to be discussed are:
That Davisville Tennis Club enter a ladies' league team into the Toronto Ladies' Tennis League (TLTL), which currently plays on Monday evenings.
Submitted by Cathy Boyd
That the Annual Master's Tournament be discontinued.
Submitted by Kelly Nolan
If motion number 2, above, is passed, that the A tournament be scheduled for early September on a trial basis in 2015, and that the other tournaments be "spaced out" during the season so there is more time for regular play during the prime months of June, July and August.
Submitted by Kelly Nolan
That Davisville add a fourth ICTA Mixed League team.
Submitted by Stuart Teather
Motion # 5
That Davisville extend the 2014 season until October 15th with the following hours: weekdays 5pm to 9pm and weekends 9am to 5pm or 10 to 6pm, with ball changes being at the discretion of the Court Stewards.

Davisville Cup - Raises $13,000+
A big thank you to all of those that came out and supported Davisville Cup. Whether you donated silent auction items, came by and bid, played, captained a team or helped to organize the day, everything came together fabulously! Davisville couldn't be more proud of all of you and the difference that your participation makes for others. $13,000 allows 520 kids to participate in summer camps through Philpott. On Saturday, we changed some lives!
September Group Lessons Posted!
Everybody can get better with the proper instruction, and DTC members have the luxury of taking lessons from Alastair Millar, one of only ten Club Professional 3’s in the country. This certification is the highest designation of Tennis Canada’s Club Professional stream.
September Group Lesson Sessions are posted under the Learn tab above. Private and semi-private lessons are also available.
These sessions will be sold out fast, so don't delay.
Please note that any monies owing for lessons are payable directly to the pro, at the time of your first lesson. We accept cash, EMT or cheque payable to Alastair Millar.
Hey New Members! (and unrated old members)
DTC has a tag-up system for reserving court time. Each tag displays a member’s name and rating level which allows you to tag up with players of equal experience. Members without a rating level on their tag may have trouble reserving court time. Consequently, new members are strongly encouraged to get rated early in the season. A list of new member rating dates and times has been posted under the Play tab above, and will be posted in the Clubhouse. You can register for a session on Opening Day or with one of the court monitors.
The September and October NMR (new member rating) sessions will be held on:
Saturday, Sept. 6 - 12pm NMR, 12:30pm NMR, 1pm NMR, 1:30 NMR
Wednesday, Sept. 17 - 8pm NMR, 8:30pm NMR
Wednesday, Oct. 1 - 7pm NMR, 7:30pm NMR
Thursday, Oct. 2 - 6pm NMR, 6:30pm NMR
Saturday, Oct. 4 - 10am NMR, 10:30am NMR, 11am NMR, 11:30am NMR, 12pm NMR, 12:30pm NMR, 1pm NMR, 1:30pm NMR
Make sure Alastair knows you're coming by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Important note - all Davisville members must be rated by the end of 2014 to be considered as a returning member. Also, unrated members will not be allowed to compete in Davisville tournaments. Re-rating sessions will be scheduled, usually for near the end of each month.
Want to get re-rated?
You've put in the time and practice and now think you're ready to move up. The next re-rating dates will be:
Saturday, August 30, 12 pm and 1 pm,
Saturday, September 27, 10am, 11am, and 12pm
(Note: Players must be available for all sessions on that date. Times will be assigned the week before the rating)
Please email Alastair at email@example.com to book your time!
Past champion? Ensure your legacy!
Davisville's permanent trophies haven't been updated in a decade, so we've embarked on a major engraving project. However, we're missing the names of some of the winners. If you've contested tournaments in the past, check out the "Past Winners" list on the bottom right side of the Tournament Page. If you spot any errors or can fill in any blanks, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
