President’s Message

Welcome all members to the 2017 season.

My name is Craig Rowsell and I am pleased to take over as President for the Dunmoore Tennis Club.

After 9 years of service to the club, Karl Wald has stepped down as President. He has been a member of Dunmoore for 15 years and always made the club his first priority. He was involved in all club functions and was always readily available to discuss and resolve any situations. The club has grown and maintained a healthy membership under his leadership and his executive team.  On behalf of all club members, I would like to thank him for his commitment, and his time and effort in making Dunmoore an incredible club to play tennis. He will remain on the executive team in a different capacity, and I look forward to work with him this coming season.

I have been a club member for 5 years.  I was recruited by a member and have found the Dunmoore club to have a special passion for tennis, and it all revolves around a very FUN environment!  I have been the 2nd VP for 3 years and have been involved with many club functions, such as running tournaments, organizing tennis gatherings, assisting with competitive team tryouts and participate in one of our competitive club teams.  In my limited years on the executive, I have seen an excitement and commitment to club growth, and an environment of competitive tennis mixed with a spirit of FUN and enjoyment for the game. I would like to continue with that focus in 2017.

With the help of our club Pro Brian Hurd, we will continue to focus on building our Junior programs.  Our club will succeed and grow further with a strong focus on our juniors, and through the investment in time and effort from our entire Dunmoore family.  With an increase focus in junior programs, often comes a building of family involvement and investment in time – our hope is those families will become new members and grow with our club as well.  Brian will run many summer programs allowing our juniors to learn the game and increase their excitement for tennis.  Please help me to make this possible – Lets make Dunmoore the club where families want to grow together on the courts!

My focus has always been about FUN – including at the competitive level, and always fun at club events. Our social coordinator this season, along with the assistance of other executive members, will be running tournaments and other events with the hope that more members will want to get involved.  We will – as we always have – make the tennis excellent but the social connection great!  Please connect with others and join as many events as you can.  We have begun to focus our attention on our website to ensure it reflects all our club activities - please check regularly for upcoming events and connect with an executive to get more involved if you’re interested.

Thank you in advance for your support. Please email me if you have concerns or questions – I want to make the Dunmoore Club and tennis experience a great one.

See you on the courts!

Craig Rowsell
