This season was my 4th term as President of CVTC. Your Executives have been able to bring about improvements to the club. (new kitchen, new deck furniture, upgraded washrooms). In short the club is looking well cared for. So therefore it is time to address the outstanding issue of controlled Access to protect the property. To place a lock on the gates has been proposed and approved during 3 previous AGM’s (2005, 2011 and 2013). However the funds were not available. In 2011 the clubhouse was broken into by damaging the French door. The intruders made a hole in the back fence behind the practise wall. Since then we have an alarm system.
In the last few years the club has been able to generate a surplus. We saved $ 5000 last year and again this season. That money is allocated for the City of Mississauga when the sprinkler system project has been completed. The club has still several thousands surplus to spend towards a controlled Access system.
For those of you who have had dealings with the City in your Executive function I can reassure you that the City is completely aware of our plans. There are no concerns about the upcoming renewal of Management & Operations agreement with the City. Other tennis clubs associated with the City have also NOT opened their gates to non-members. This access issue has been discussed. Perhaps a controlled , scheduled access could be arranged for a low usage time if needed. Also the access to our (public) washrooms has been resolved. There is no need for that. The City has promised to provide portable toilets in the park area for most of the summertime 2018. Of course the Community centre is open on Saturdays and Sundays. (Not on Holidays).
As the club is on City property there has to be proper access. The sliding gate on the North side has no height restrictions. It allows for big truck to pass. The front gate has to be modified for the lock installation. The front gate will have to become a single swing access gate. There is plenty of room left for disability access.
Your Executives are keen to install Access control with a Key FOB system in the near future.
1. Improved ClubHouse maintenance resulting from 100% Positive Members-Only Entry.
2. Improved Clay court Maintenance.
3. Helping Club President and Manager by Providing them with Productivity Tools.
4. Proven Key FOB Technology is affordable, Easy and Quick for the members to use.
5. Key FOB system Will Actually Hold Down Future Club Operating Costs.
It is time for Credit Valley Tennis Club to join the other clubs and implements a state of the art KeyFOB Access system. The club has a surplus this year and the finances are carefully managed by your Executives. in other words ,we can afford it.
The goal is to implement this system during the wintertime in readiness for use in the Spring of 2018.
Of course , any concerns you still may have , will be addressed via email to
Please note I am out the country from September 19 till October 6 inclusive.
Enjoy the wonderful weather and our beautiful club.
Danielle Over, President
