President’s Message – 2022 Kick off

Welcome to 2022 at Dunmoore!


To All the Dunmoore Faithful:
 

What a long strange trip it has been!



The Dunmoore executive team is very pleased to welcome all members back to the club for the 2022 season. We truly hope that all of our members, families and friends have stayed safe and healthy during this difficult time.


It is NOW time to bring back NORMAL.


This year we are bringing back all the terrific and enjoyable events that make Dunmoore the club to be at for tennis. We have plans on opening all leagues, tournaments, socials and club events that allow us to come together. The last 2 years have challenged so many, but most of us have truly missed the social gathering of friends and family that make us whole.


Please visit our website and read through the “Smash” newsletter that highlights all the events we have going on at the club.


The game of tennis has really flourished during this pandemic as many looked to get outdoors and enjoy one of the few sports that allowed for us to socially distance. Our club membership expanded last season to over 400 members from the previous 260 members. With so much incredible young talent representing on the professional tours, many young people are picking up the game – we would love for them to pick it up at Dunmoore.



We have brought in a new Head Pro – Please welcome Cameron Wittick. He will be assisted by our long time Pro Brian Hurd. Although Brian will be focusing his skills at another club, he will continue to assist and still run some events at our club.

Cameron is excited to have planned many new aerobics classes and clinics for both Juniors and Adults. These programs will be new to Dunmoore and we are hopeful that they will be very successful and well received by our members.  For more information, please visit www.rougevalleytennis.ca or email at wittick77@gmail.com. You can also find a some information in the Programs section on our website, or contact an executive member if you have questions.


All our leagues and events details are on the website – we have some new club members taking over leagues this year and we thank all who volunteer their time to continue making our club a success.



Although there were few events that ran during the last 2 years I do want to highlight and take time to THANK my executive team. Even with few club events, there is constant upkeep and planning that needs to occur often behind the scenes. Thank you to the incredible ladies and gentlemen that make the club run – without them, we would not be the club we are!



We are also very excited to have a new club logo this year and are in the process of having hats, shirts and towels made – swag time!  We will have some new items available in the near future. Make sure to order your items to support and show off the club.


We would like to send a special THANK YOU to the Scott family (Mark and Becky) for their incredible work on this task.



If you have any concerns please contact Craig at

We hope that when you are at Dunmoore, you feel a part of the family. We strive to make this a family club and hope you have a “Smashing” great time this season!  See you on the courts!
