2017 Annual General Meeting – 27 August 2017 at 11am.
It’s that time of year again when we have the Club AGM. This years meeting will be held on the 27th of August at 11am at the EPTC Club Rooms.
After many years of hard work, a number of our longstanding committee members have decided it’s time to step aside and allow others to take an active role in the Clubs future. These members have made significant contributions to the development of Eildon Park Tennis Club, not just as a tennis club, but as a valuable and important community asset. We owe these people a significant debt.
The “changing of the guard” represents a significant moment in our club’s history. This is both an exciting and challenging opportunity for us. Our club is the envy of many others and one we should be rightly proud of. This has not occurred by sheer luck.
With this in mind, I invite you all to seriously consider what role you can play in the future of Eildon Park Tennis Club. Even a small role assisting a convenor or subcommittee would be enormously beneficial to the club. We need your help now more than ever. We are a community based club reliant on community input for the future benefit of our community. The satisfaction and stimulation you get from being involved in a club such as ours is directly proportional to what we as individuals put into it.
This is your opportunity to make a positive difference in our club and community.
Eildon Park Tennis Club recently held a Hot Shots program for Autistic children from Irabina Autism Services. There were 27 children over the 2 day program which included a visit from Federal MP Alan Tudge and Knox Mayor Darren Pearce. The program was made possible due to funding and donations from Tennis Victoria. We aim to continue the program during the September school holidays and into 2018. Many thanks to the Committee Members who attended, AJ and his coaching team and to all who donated items for the tennis show bags for the children. The feedback from Irabina is that the children had a very positive experience and to see the joy on their faces was very rewarding.
Irabina Autism Services has presented EPTC with a framed certificate of appreciation which will proudly hang in the clubrooms.

In early January 2016, Eildon Park Tennis Club completed the resurfacing of the Galvin-Beveridge courts (court numbers 1, 2 & 3) with modern blue-coloured artificial grass. This work was made possible by a grant from the State Government’s Local Facilities for Local Clubs program along with substantial contributions by Club Members and Tennis Australia. The courts were officially opened on Friday 20th May 2016, by The Honourable Kim Wells, MP (Member for Rowville), Knox City Council Mayor Councillor Tony Holland, Knox City Council Taylor Ward Councillor Darren Pearce and EPTC President Michael Tomlinson.
In addition to the resurfacing, there were adjustments made to the fences surrounding these courts to allow for optimal viewing. These improved courts are just another example of Eildon Park Tennis Club striving to ensure our club facilities are in the best condition for our members, visitors and guests.
