Gifts and Donations

Payne Park users benefit, often unknowingly, from generous donations and gifts and it is hoped to list them here.

Often the giver or person donating something for the benefit of players, does not want to be recognised - but my belief is that it is important to recognise their selfless contribution.

Tax-payer dollars support the Tennis Center - but often there is a lack of funds and some things just make playing at Payne Park more comfortable.

Rose organises a Ladies Group which [;ays early morning, often using up to 11 courts.... that is some undertaking.
