Dear Members,
I am pleased to announce that our clubhouse will be refurbished. The work will include:
  • An externally accessible unisex bathroom that is disability friendly for use at times when the clubhouse is locked
  • Refurbishment of Men’s and Women’s bathrooms
  • New window frames and doors
  • Updated kitchen facilities
  • New carpets and flooring
  • A splash of fresh paint
This is certainly an exciting time for the Doncaster Tennis Club. Drawings showing the works to be carried out are displayed on the Club Noticeboard (near the table tennis table).

The project will start about 1 August and finish about the beginning of October. During this time, there may be some access restrictions to the clubhouse and general areas. Please ensure that you:
  • Follow the appropriate signage and directions provided
  • Ensure children do not play / access storage or construction areas
  • Use alternative access points and facilities as required
We will try to minimise the disruptions and return to full operation as quickly as possible, but obviously we will be inconvenienced at some times, such as:
  • Temporary toilets will be provided for men to use throughout the project, until completion.
  • After the new Men’s bathroom has been constructed, men will continue to use the temporary toilets, and women will use the new Men’s bathroom until the refurbishment of the Women’s bathroom is completed.
  • Members will not have access to the building on every Thursday and Friday before 3:30pm during August and up until Friday 16th September (except during school holidays). The builders will be on site most days, but they will have sole access to the Club House during working hours on Thursdays and Fridays.
  • Most of the kitchen cupboards have already been emptied, so it will be more difficult preparing afternoon tea for visiting teams. Please allow extra time for preparation, and for cleaning up and packing away
Your Committee believes that we will finish up with a substantially improved clubhouse, so please have patience. We will try to keep you informed, but there may be unexpected project variations or delays.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Nina Socratous 04 0079 9024 or myself 04 1900 9453 as we are the subcommittee liaising with the Council Officers undertaking the Project Management.
