You can also get there by “Yellow Submarine” down the Petitcodiac. You will want to be there “Because” you will have some fun. We know “Happiness is a Warm Tennis Racquet” but “It Won’t Be long” until July 18 and hopefully it won’t “Rain” so be sure and bring your tennis shoes with the “Rubber Sole” and “Meet The Beatles”. Even “Sgt Pepper” and “Long Tall Sally” will be there. Don’t miss this great event to celebrate 2009 Tennis season Sat July 18 – It will be groovy.

Moncton Region In-door Tennis Project – tennis intérieur

 comité tri-communautaire de tennis – réunion
 
Bonjour cher joeurs de tennis,
Dick LeBlanc AMP
Tel:  506-866-8889
Fax: 506-854-8479
E-mail: pdleblan@nb.sympatico.ca
www.Monctonplusmortgages.com 

        Vous vous souviendrez de la réunion organisée par Tennis Nouveau-Brunswick et présidée par Andrew Wright, ancien directeur
exécutif de l’ATA à la mi-octobre 2008. Une demande avait été faite par des volontaires afin de former un comité dans le but de développer une stratégie  pour faire construire des terrains de tennis intérieurs dans notre région. J’ai été agréablement surpris de constater le grand nombre de personnes engagées  à s’impliquer et j’ai donc accepté d’aider à organiser la première réunion. La principale raison d’être de ce groupe consiste à développer
une stratégie pour des terrains intérieurs dans ce bassin du tennis. L’ordre du jour n’ayant pas été établi, j’attends des suggestions
provenant du groupe. Entretemps, je suggère les thèmes suivants;

 1.      élire un conseil d’administration,

2.      donner un aperçu des efforts encourus dans le passé pour  développer des facilités intérieures,

3.      autres fonctions possibles du comité.

 

Conséquemment, vous êtes invités à la première réunion du «comité tri-communautaire de tennis » samedi matin, le 17 janvier, 2009 au CEPS de l’U de M, local 266 de 10 heures à midi. Prière de nous aviser des sujets dont vous voulez  ajouter à l’ordre du jour et soyez prêt à jouer un rôle actif comme membre du comité. 

Tennis Tri-Community Organizing Committe meeting
       
        You will recall a meeting held by Tennis NB, chaired by Andrew Wright, (former)ATA Executive Director, in mid-October 2008. At that meeting,  a request was made for volunteers to form a committee with the view of developing a strategy for “indoor courts” in the Moncton area. I was very pleased to see the number of people who signed up and I agreed to help organize the initial meeting. The primary purpose of this group is develop a strategy for indoor courts in this “hotbed of tennis”.  While an agenda is not established for the meeting, I am looking for suggested topics from the group, I suggest some of the following be up for discussion, namely;
  1. Elect a “Board of Directors” to steer this committee and define roles. 
  2. History of efforts made by interested parties to establish indoor facilities.
  3. Other possible functions of the “committee”
        Accordingly, you are invited to attend a first meeting of the “Tri-Community Tennis Committee” to be held Saturday morrning, January 17th,2009 at the UdeM CEPS, boardroom 266 from 10 to 12AM. Please advise any subjects you wish included on the agenda and be prepared to be an active part in developing a dynamic

Tennis NB in-door tennis facility in Moncton – public meeting

To: Tennis NB Greater Moncton – Stakeholders, Partners. Parents

 RE: Indoor Tennis Facility Summit

The Atlantic Tennis Alliance (ATA) and Tennis NB will be hosting an indoor tennis facility summit on Saturday October 18th, 2008 at The Best Western, Moncton in the The “Petitcodiac” room from 10am – 1pm.  This summit will focus on partners in the Greater Moncton region.

 

The Atlantic Tennis Alliance and its provincial partners are in the final stages of developing a 4 year strategic plan for facility development in Atlantic Canada.  The lack of indoor courts in Atlantic Canada and more specifically New Brunswick is a major issue in our region and must be addressed in the years ahead.   It is critical to begin to develop infrastructure that will meet our increasing tennis development needs.    

 

Greater Moncton is currently a vibrant tennis community with three major club operations. The region has successfully hosted 3 successful u16 junior nationals in Dieppe and most recently hosted the professional men’s Moncton Challenger in Moncton.  The Building Tennis Community strategy has also grown the game at the very important grass roots level through the implementation of schools programs and community team tennis. 

 

I invite you to take part in this important event:  The Summit will have the following agenda:

ü       Review Tennis Canada and ATA strategic plan – Facility Development

ü       Putting Greater Moncton in Context – Opportunity for development

ü       Generating Ideas and Interest – An open discussion on indoor facility development

 

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Andrew Wright at ata@tenniscanada.com or Mark Thibault at tnb@tennisnb.net.  Coffee, tea and muffins will be provided.

 

See you there,

 

Andrew Wright

Senior Director

ATA, Tennis Canada
