Our Committee

The Edgeware Tennis Club committee is elected at the club’s AGM which is usually held before the beginning of every season. The committee is tasked with the day to day running of the club, ensuring that members are able to use and enjoy our great facilities and experience the game of tennis year round. Alongside this, the committee also organises a number of social events and fundraisers throughout the year.

On the committee, we have a great team with the members coming from a variety of backgrounds. We are always on the lookout for new members so if being on our commitee sounds like something that might interest you or if you’d like to know more, we’d love to hear from you!

Below are small bio’s on some of the current members of the committee.

Jamie Poole

I am a keen tennis player and have been ever since I could hold a racket. I have been a member at Edgeware for the last 8 years or so and over the years I have watched the club grow from strength to strength. For the last few years I have been involved in the organisation and administration of our Interclub teams and have played in our Premier Men’s team. Outside of the club I enjoy anything sport related and spending time with my young family. I look forward to seeing you down at the club in the future!

Nic Jenkins

I have been apart of the Edgeware culture for over 7 years and have progressed from Junior grades into the Premier Mens team. I have recently changed my focus to coaching however, where I am currently head coach of the club. I have a big passion for being on court coaching and mentoring players of all ages/abilities. I am also heavily involved in the ‘off court’ side of the club whether it’s administration, business, or social media. It’s really exciting being in the committee and I’m excited about the future of the club moving forward.

Anna-Marie Sloane

After spending hours every week at Edgeware watching my son play tennis it was probably inevitable that I would end up on the committee at some point! I’m far from being a professional tennis player myself but I’m passionate about helping to make Edgeware a place where we can all come and enjoy tennis in a friendly community environment. I love bringing people together through the events that we hold and have made so many new friends through our association with the club these past few years.

Tom Paine

I’ve been a coach at Edgeware since early 2015 and currently work for Nic, our Head coach. Alongside coaching I play Division 1 Men’s tennis and am part of the Premier Men’s team. Away from the court I work in Graphic Design, so with this background I run the Edgeware Tennis website and help with social media. Being on the committee has been a rewarding experience and has enabled me to use my skills to positively help the club.

Tori Kelland

I’m a mother of three young boys, two of whom play tennis at Edgeware. I’m involved with the social side of the club and am the Duty Manager at the clubhouse bar. I love meeting new people and we have enjoyed lots of social tennis games with other families at the club, not to mention the odd quiz and bingo nights! I have met some wonderful new friends and I feel like I am contributing to an establishment that has been part of our community for so many years. I look forward to meeting you over a drink at the club soon!

Katrina Welleans

Having been a tennis fan for years, I finally managed to build up the courage to start playing about 4 years ago and have never looked back. I have been lucky to travel to Melbourne twice to watch the Australian Open which has given me more passion for the wonderful game. Our club and committee are what I am most proud of, these people make Edgeware Tennis Club a wonderful club to be associated with and are always looking at new ways of getting our members involved in fun social events at our club. You will see me on court most Saturday afternoon’s, so bring your racket down and come have a hit and the best part is…. chocolate biscuits and a cuppa after our games :-).
