The Edgeware Tennis Club committee is elected at the club’s AGM which is usually held before the beginning of every season. The committee meets every month and 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.
If being on our committee sounds like something that might interest you, or if you have a skill set that you think could add value, we’d love to hear from you! Please talk to a committee member or send us an email.
The committee is made up of a group of volunteers to take on roles such as the Club President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer/Administrator, Club Coach, Club Captain, Junior Administrator and Club Delegate. It’s important to ensure representation of our entire membership, so we welcome parents and members from all backgrounds to join as committee members. Below are a few profiles of some of our committee members.
Jamie Poole, Club President
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, Club Coach
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, Vice President
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.
Katrina Welleans, Treasurer/Administrator
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 :-).
