Website Introduction
Posted on Sep 11th, 2022
Communications:
We should be ready for the official launch of the new website. Many of you have already registered during the soft launch phase. Once this is official some things will start changing. Some immediately and some over time.
1. MailChimp will be decommissioned and replaced by the blast email tool within the website.
2. Evite will be decommissioned and replaced by the invitation management tool within the website.
3. Share Timetable for tennis reservations has already been decommissioned.
4. The newsletter will be much shorter and will contain only items that are truly news. We are transitioning much of the info we repeat month after month in the newsletter to the website, where it has always belonged.
