Sunday November 25th!

(Updated on Nov 26, 2018)


Unfortunately, out team was outclassed by the youngsters at Springwood - but many enjoyable sets of tennis were played. Our 4 teams of ladies all had wins, but we couldn't make up for the 6 losses by our men. 52 sets to 27 down.... Oh well - 10 out of 10 for effort Seniors, and especially our 80 year-olds who soldiered on while giving away 30 years!


The day began with morning tea at 9.30, play started at 10. Tennis was the winner on the day - as we enjoyed perfect fine weather.


Springwood Club is now 16-17 behind. Perhaps we should call  it a day!!

Entry forms 



(Updated June 11, 2018)

We had 14 teams of very keen players for the weekend but unfortunately the rain, which was not invited, also turned-up. We were able to play only the Saturday. Conditions were not perfect, but an excellent day was had. Under the circumstances we decided that the event had to then be offically cancelled. Apologies to those who were leading after day 1.


A HUGE thanks to Louisa Mortimer for organising what was shaping-up to be a fabulous event. Louisa was assisted by her husband Geoff and the oh-so delightful Rennebergs (Geoff is delightful too!). You were all excellent hosts. Thank you so much.


Contributing to the day was the brilliant catering by Scott Homsey. Thanks to Scotty for again sharing the delights of his company, D'Vine Catering. The delicious food and excellent presentation made a good day great. Scotty showed that his high standards stretch beyond the tennis court.


Would Teams please note that there will be a part-refund of the entry fee. Costs (courts n balls) need to be sorted first. I will also have to wait until Arthur (Treasurer) returns at the end of the month, as he pays the bills.


Regards to all.

Friday Dec 1 - Sunday Dec 3

(Updated December 4, 2017)


A fabulous weekend for all concerned - many NEW members gracing the courts and lots of "old" friends catching up! See Facebook posts!


Friday's events were very well patronised to start the ball rolling, and players who played Singles in the morning were able to call "yours" in the American Round Robin Doubles after lunch! This is an enjoyable format with players meeting people on the other side of the net that they hadn't played against before.


Steve Taylor did a fantastic job of catering for the 233 players at various centres along the coast. Courts at Fingal Bay, Shoal Bay, Boat Harbour and Soldiers' Point were needed as well as the 8 courts at Nelson Bay itself. Windy Saturday sorted us out, but what a classic sunny day Sunday turned out to be! A great finish!

(Updated Oct 3rd, 2017)

Tournament was completed at 3.20pm Monday.


Our 2017 Champions have been presented with their prize money, after a fairly strenuous weekend which commenced on Friday morning for some! The weather was Purrr-fect, so we had many happy faces. The standard of tennis was superb throughout the weekend. We had 30 fewer entries than in 2016, so we need to work on adding some for 2018.
Men's Singles were conducted in all age groups to 80+ even though the winner of the 80s was actually over 85. We would like to figure out how to get more female entries in the Singles - any ideas?

Some of our members have departed this life - sincere condolences to their families and friends......

From Cooma came the news that Richie Robinson was not well, and not given long to live - we heard at Merimbula that he had passed away. Next, it was John Magee, formerly from Marrickville Hardcourt, living in Ulladulla, who succumbed to Melanoma after suffering terrible Chemo treatment for months...Then on Sunday Oct 18, Bill Moroney of Newcastle, at the grand old age of 90, passed away in his sleep after a month in hospital, and 6 days in care.

Funeral services have been held for all of these gentlemen, attended by very many tennis lovers as well as family & friends. We offer our sincere condolences to those who are surviving these three esteemed members of Tennis Seniors NSW. May they rest in peace.

Report from the Picton Seniors Tennis Tournament

(Posted June 1, 2015)


Picton received 144 entries, the weather was very kind – a little chilly, but players were happy with the conditions, and the competition was of a high quality (see results). There was even a former Aussie Open Finalist making a come-back to tennis after 10 years of playing Cricket. John Marks took on the 50-year olds, even though he’s reached 60! Geoff Daus from Surry Hills gave John a workout in the round Robin group, going down in a Tie Breaker, and then the ACT visitor Steve Vogt gave him another run for his money in the playoff – another Tie Breaker to John! He was so bushed, he couldn’t play in his own age group in the afternoon, much to the disappointment of many.....

Eulogies by Rupert Rosenblum (former tennis partner), Anne White (friend), Bruce's daughters and grand daughters plus a very moving tribute from pastor Tim Ferris caused both tears and laughter as Bruce's idiosyncrasies were mentioned. May he rest in peace.
