Lunches are still on!
Food can be a chore, if organising lunch every day is getting you down let your favourite tennis club do it for you. Our phenomenal chef Evie prepares exceptional dishes every Wednesday and Friday including the regular steak and salmon, which is the best in Melbourne (in our completely unbiased opinion), and a range of specials and extras. Drop in on us when you need a break from thinking about lunch and bring anyone you can find who needs a feed.
Emergency Evacuation Procedure Reminder
The committee reminds members and members’ guests of the club’s Emergency Evacuation Procedures:

• Go immediately to the nearest exit
• Leave the building by the most direct route
• Follow instructions by staff and/or fire wardens
• Meet at the east end of the club carpark
• If a person with a disability cannot be evacuated, assist them to a position as close as possible to an exit. Notify staff and/or fire brigade.
• Remain outside until the ALL CLEAR is given by emergency officials or fire wardens.

Members and members’ guests are also reminded to please report any OHS issues to the pro shop or direct to the committee. Our members and staff are the lifeblood of our club. It is important we are all alert to emerging hazards to ensure we remain safe while at the RMTC.
