If you visit the lobby at the club, you'll see our Timberhill Tennis Club Hall of Fame inductees. The Hall of Fame was started several years ago to recognize and honor individuals who have made significant contributions to Timberhill Tennis Club, or have had outstanding success within the game of tennis. It's a group that we hope will grow as the club evolves. Any voting member of TTC can nominate a current or former member of TTC for inclusion in the Hall of Fame, and nominations are due annually in the spring for consideration by the Board of Directors for that year's Hall of Fame class. Nominations for the 2023 class are due by March 31, 2023 for official induction and recognition this summer.

From the Clubhouse

Hi Everybody,

We had a little bit of everything in February, weather-wise: sunny 50 degree days, snow, deep cold, rain, you name it! This winter has been a good test for the insulation/liner systems that were installed in the buildings last year. It's definitely been an improvement, though the cold days can still be pretty cold in there.

With that in mind, the Capital Improvements Committee is picking back up the information-gathering process to see what the costs are that would be associated with installing heat sources for our indoor courts. This is a long process to find an affordable system that fits our needs, so we'll keep you up to date if there are new developments.

We've also contracted to remove several problem trees and limbs around our property, particularly around the driveway area. This will be noticeable work, and should improve visibility, safety, and the general health of the natural setting around the club.

This spring sometime, we'll likely do another round of court scrubbing--this had a great impact on the look and play of the indoor courts last time we did it, and we'll try to time it so we can hit the outdoor courts, too. This is usually a quick process that we can do overnight.

This will come in the midst of a busy spring season here at the club. Besides USTA matches being scheduled in on some weekends, we'll be hosting our Spring UTR tournament March 11-12, a one-day CHS high school invitational April 15, and high school districts and state (in case of rain) in mid-May. Most of these are good revenue-producing events for the club, so know that while the courts are in short supply during these events, the club's bottom line benefits. They are also great chances to come out and cheer on some of our members as they compete!

Lastly, the TTC Bylaws are in the process of being updated and approved. No major changes, but it had been several years since they had been revised, so we had the Center for Nonprofit Law look them over and recommend changes that keep us in compliance with Oregon Nonprofit law and streamline our operations. Thanks to Caitlin Sullivan, Marsha Feldman, and Lisa Adamczyk for spearheading this effort.
