The Bay Loves Tennis Brand Launches to Promote Open Days

The Bay Loves Tennis Brand Launches to Promote Open Days Throughout the Region

TAURANGA, Thursday 29th August 2019: A new online brand has been created to promote the synchronised Open Days of eight tennis clubs across the Western Bay on Saturday September 7th.

The Bay Loves Tennis Facebook page will encourage tennis players from across the region to visit a nearby club, have a hit, enjoy a BBQ and meet some new people.

Jody Robertson of Western Bay Tennis says recent national research showed that people belong to tennis clubs because of the fun factor - so they wanted a brand to capture this feeling.*

The brand and campaign for the Open Days in the Western Bay are being run by local agency Whare PR, who are sponsoring the publicity.

“Fun is a great antidote to the stresses of the modern world and tennis clubs are hugely social, across all age groups. There are so many opportunities to meet new people and lots of scheduled programmes throughout the week such as Cardio Tennis, Business House, Mid-Week Ladies, Junior Tennis and Interclub that people can join.”

“Getting fit and staying healthy is the next reason why people are joining clubs, followed by wanting to play competitively,” says Robertson

The Western Bay has a reputation for being competitive at a national level with eight juniors ranked in the Top 20 nationally and several overseas on tennis scholarships. At the last Senior National Individual Championships in January, well over a dozen players reached finals and semi-finals in their respective age groups.

The clubs are professionally organised and have great facilities, and the research showed that members perceive high value from being in a club.

Robertson says with burgeoning population growth in the region, the Open Days will offer new families and people to the region the chance to experience the clubs for free.

Western Bay Clubs Participating on Saturday September 7th Include:

Gate Pa Tennis Club
Homewood Park Tennis (Katikati)
Mount Maunganui Tennis Club
Otumoetai Tennis Club
Papamoa Tennis
Tauranga Lawn Tennis Club
Te Puke Tennis Club
Waihi Beach Tennis Club Inc
Omokoroa Tennis Club (Open Day held on 14th Sep, 12-2pm)

Coronavirus: On The Addiction To Chinese Student Fees, And A Possible Future For RNZ Concert

Last week, Australian PM Scott Morrison extended its ban on foreign visitors from or passing through from mainland China – including Chinese students - for a third week. New Zealand has dutifully followed suit, with our travel ban extending until next Monday at least, presumably dependent to some extent on what Morrison decides to do later this week.
Our universities are now asking for an exemption to the travel ban for their Chinese students, who would still, the universities assure us, be subjected to strict quarantine procedures upon arrival. Given how the inability of the university system to care for its own students on campus made world news last year, that promise may not do much to reduce the coronavirus fears among the wider New Zealand public.
