The annual report of the Petone Tennis Club, presented at the annual meeting this week, stated that with the aid of a good season from a weather point of view, the committee was able to get all matches finished, but in nearly all events players had to be scratched for not playing their games by the date set down for the comple- ; tion of each round, although adequate ■ time was allowed in every case, and in many cases an extra week was given. The committee would like to point out to members that it Was time they realised that when they entered for these events they were under an obligation both to the committee and to the rest of the members competing to get the matches played off. The club did very well in the interclub matches. Although no grade championship came the way of the club, both the senior A and third grade teams were runners-up in the final game against the Lower Hutt Club, and the third grade team won all the matches in their section in a very convincing manner, but in the .final against i the Eastern Hutt Club, winners of the north section, were not quite good enough. The senior B team did not do as well as was expected, and perhaps this could partly be accounted for i owing to the fact that on a number of [occasions they had to lend players to fill gaps in the senior A team. The opening date was fixed for September 24. • • ' It was agreed to support the Hutt Valley. Lawn Tennis Sub-Association's proposal for association courts. Members decided to send a present of a crystal water set to Mr. R. G. Croudis, a member of the committee, who had been transferred from Lower Hutt to Feilding. • Officers were elected as follows:— President, the Hon. Walter Nash; vicepresidents, Messrs. J. K. Robertson, J. C. .Burns, and H. Hoskin; hon. secretary, Mr. C. W. Johnston; hon. treasurer, Mr. H. Eades; hon. auditor, Mr. G. Mcßride; hon. solicitor, Mr. E. A. Roussell; management committee, Messrs. H. H. Hoyte, J. O. Bonifant, R. Mcllraith, Mesdames S. Kean and D. Johnston; dub captain, Mr. A. F. Kean; deputy club captain, Mr. A. M.
