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. The com •4 mittee recommended that an arrange meat should be made with the tennis 'm club, by which it was made clear whether the club kept the ground clean or the Domain Board. The committee also proposed to put a flood gate across the stream to etop oattle from getting into the Domain from Ihe adjoining paddock The chairman said, as the tenma club at the Morice Dotrnin kept its courts in order, he thought the Little River Club should keep its courts in order, or the Board a subsidy per year to keepthern in order. The Board bad put down the courts, and he thought the club should maintain them.
