I had the pleasure today of opening the new season for the Fairmont Tennis Club.
The Club is a social club for people who are retired and is around 70 years old. They have been located in the Goodwood South Ward of the City of Unley for its entire history, now residing in their third venue, Page Park on the corner of East Avenue and Cross Road at Clarence Park.
speaking at lunch time 60’s thru 80’s and beyond enjoying life
A fantastic group of people, some Unley residents, others from other areas have been enjoying using one of our parks. We may not have many parks but they are well used. Indeed another group was using the park today to, I believe for the purpose of blessing their dogs.
The club is a great example in a time where councils are faced with helping to address the needs of an ageing society. We can all learn by following the example set by these “youngsters”.
Thank you to the club for the opportunity to kick start your new season. Have fun guys.
