Jumbo Tennis 7’s

Jumbo Tennis 7’s – coming to Saxton Stadium (indoors) in 2018!

Jumbo Tennis is a fun tournament playing Tennis with over-sized racquets, ordinary Tennis balls, to table tennis rules, for 7 minutes a game.
Come in your team uniform as you would to the Rugby 7’s.
And enjoy the event.

Download the Jumbo Tennis Flyer for information about the event.

Jumbo Tennis is a fundraising event, run by our Rotary Club to provide funding to Community Organisations.  This year we are involving the St John Volunteers as well as our Rotary International Foundation, and club activities.
Entry gives you four paid, fed, and hydrated players who make up two doubles teams.  You can bring other players and spectators who will pay for food and drink.
Games are scheduled to start at 3 p.m., on the five netball courts inside Saxton Stadium.  Each game lasts for 7 minutes, with golden point if necessary.  The Round Robin gives plenty of games.  We will then have a time for any grudge matches before we progress into the Quarter, Semi and Plate and Cup Finals.  The evening should finish up with prizegiving around 7:30 p.m.

The cost is $575 for four players and includes refreshments and food.

Email JumboTennis@Rotary9970.org.nz with your interest – you will be contacted to provide billing email, name of team(s), etc.

No problem, smaller teams will be catered for – $300 for two players, $175 for one player.

Spectators, or indeed reserve players, are very welcome, but for catering, we will need to know how many approximately you will have along to support your team.

We are looking for sponsors of all aspects of the event.
If you could supply us with some ‘goodies’ to go into the players bags, or prizes for a team, or a raffle prize, that would be magnificent.
Also, sponsors for advertising, signwriting, food, drink, prizes, etc etc are needed.  The more that we can get supplied the better.
We thank the following sponsors for their support: BOWATER HONDA

Please call 027 445 9191 for Murray, or 021 678 410 for Shellz for information.

Rent-a-Rotarians strike again

At our Black Tie Dinner and Charity Auction for Nelson Hospice, Tina Stanton was the successful bidder for a visit from a team of Nelson West Rotarians. Ray and his team did a great job around Tina’s property, leaving her smiling and impressed. Well done, team!

Alex and Dick – Rotarians for rent


Here is the note we received from Tina:

I would like to thank Ray and his team of Rotarians for the brilliant job they did cleaning up our gardens on Saturday 2nd December. That is the level of commitment and service by members that makes Rotary such a respected and successful organisation.
As a relatively new Nelson resident, I have been putting down roots here and I will continue to support your club projects and events. I look forward to meeting you all again in the future.
