F Parkinson ana T Quealy (hon. sec) ' ' The ground committee reported i Messrs Smart and Sons had finished , the Morice court, which appeared satisfactory. It was not hard enough , ♦ to play OD. The club had out the i grass, and was keeping the grounds in ** order. Some of the macrooarpa9 on #■ the road had been cut down, which was an improvement During the i winter it waa recommended the "'' balance of the macrocarpaa on the road should be cut down, and an , ornamental plantation planted. The Awa Iti Domain tennis court badly needed repair. Meffars Smart & Sons agreed to do this, but bad not done so, thougb the chairman bad written to W them without effect. This should be -d done at once. The Awa Iti tennis grounds were very badly kept, and long grass growing pund courts. This w»3 because/ there was no stipulation -that the courts should be kept in order. As the **y courts had been laid down for the fftke of tennis players, probably the Board would consider the club should be f responsible for the upkeep.
