Racism. It Stops with Me
The Club recently attended the Racism. It Stops with me. workshop held by the Moonee Valley City Council highlighting how racism is still present in our community. The campaign launched by the Australian Human Rights Commission, aims to:
1. Ensure more Australians recognise that racism is unacceptable in our community
2. Give more Australians the tools & resources to take practical action against racism
3. Empower individuals & organisations to prevent & respond effectively to racism
The Club has joined the fight and encourages all of our members to speak up against racism in all its forms.

The Club’s Members Survey was completed by many members and it gave the Committee a great deal of information about Members and their priorities and needs. The results of the Survey are presented in Membership Survey Results, and as a result of this survey and feedback from Members the Club will implement the following initiatives and address the following items:
- Social Tennis – Many members commented that the Club should organise more Social Tennis events as it allows members to get together for some fun, promotes a more community environment and allows members to meet some other members. The Club will organise some Social Tennis afternoons or evenings during October and November, with the proposed days being either Sunday afternoon or Wednesday nights.
- Parking at the Club – A few members commented that parking at the Club is an issue. The Club has been working with the Moonee Valley City Council for many years to address the availability of parking. The Committee will continue this discussion to find a solution.
