Daryl Cox Shield Presentation
May 2017
The Daryl Cox Memorial Shield is presented by Bayside Regional Tennis Association in honour of services to Tennis by Mr. Daryl Cox. The Shield is awarded bi-annually to the Saturday/Sunday Junior team with the best score aggregate over the season.

The presentation of the Shield for the Spring season 2016 was made by Mrs Olive Cox, widow of the late Daryl Cox, at the Bayside Regional Tennis Association's AGM held on 15th May 2017. Congratulations to the team from Carmelite Tennis Club who achieved the best aggregate score, and received a replica copy of the Shield.

Also in attendance at the meeting were Peter Cox and Helen Cox, the son and daughter of Daryl Cox. Peter Cox addressed the meeting and spoke about the substantial contribution to the sport of tennis made by his father Daryl Cox.

Beaumaris Lawn Tennis Club - Clubrooms redevelopment
November 2016
The following news item has been provided by Beaumaris Lawn Tennis Club:

BLTC is undergoing a massive $5 million development and new clubrooms and function space are being built. There are many changes happening during the demolition and construction phases which need to be highlighted to visiting players, not least of all, our new temporary address.

Please advise all visiting players/clubs that our address is:

Beaumaris Lawn Tennis Club
Banksia Reserve
(Entrance on Oak Street)
Beaumaris VIC 3193

Visitor facilities such as changing rooms and toilets as well as canteen, bar and shop are available at the Beaumaris Football/Cricket Club Pavilion (near courts 7-13). This building is open for everyone to use during tennis. Parking can be located at the Oak Street entrance and please advise players to check our Court Allocation Board ( outside the BFC/BCC Pavilion ) to see which courts they will be playing on that day. Additional parking is available in adjacent streets .There is no car access to the top 6 courts, only pedestrian access beside court 6 which leads into courts 1-6.

Safety is of paramount importance to us at BLTC and players must be mindful that the old clubhouse and surrounding areas are now a confined construction zone and the fences around the area must not be tampered with in any way. If anyone is unsure how to access the top courts please ask a member of BLTC who will show you the way.

On Sunday mornings, our club junior co-ordinator Alan Thomas will be at the temporary clubrooms to assist in any way possible. His telephone number is 0417 343 123. The BLTC office is also located at the BFC/BCC pavilion.

Clubs with Outstanding Debts
Updated November 2016
The Association receives money from affiliated clubs for such items as team fees and fines. Occasionally, clubs overlook payments for these items, and the debt becomes overdue. When this happens, reminders are sent to the clubs, and normally payment is received shortly thereafter. Sometimes, however, payments remain outstanding for several months.

The Association generally takes the view that it is important for the tennis competitions involving these clubs to continue, and that individual teams and players should not be penalised because of the tardiness of the club's administration. Contact is made with the club's secretary or president to try and resolve the outstanding debts.

On rare occasions this approach is not successful, and debts can become outstanding for more than 3 months. Reluctantly, the Association Committee may then determine that all teams from the offending club will become ineligible to receive any match points until the outstanding debt is paid. Any match points lost are not generally reinstated.

Clubs which are currently ineligible to receive match points are listed on the Home Page of this website. If you are playing in a team for one of these clubs, it would be in your interest to contact a member of your club's committee and enquire what action is being taken to resolve the outstanding debt.
A rewarding opportunity to get involved with tennis administration!
15 April 2006

Would you like to join the BRTA committee, and become involved in the running of the Associationís activities?

The Bayside Regional Tennis Association covers a large geographic area - from the Yarra River in the north to Rosebud in the south, and from Port Philip Bay to Beaconsfield in the east. We have a membership of around 80 tennis clubs, and more than 500 teams participating in regular weekly competitions. There are also around 30 teams in our night tennis competitions.

The tennis competitions are many and varied, and involve juniors on Saturdays and Sundays, seniors on Saturdays, and midweek ladies on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Night competitions are held on Monday and Tuesday nights.

As you would expect, there are many jobs to be done in managing all of these competitions, and involvement with these activities can be very rewarding. For some roles, such as competition record secretaries, an annual honorarium is payable.

If you are interested please contact Kerry Wundersitz on 9836-6458.
