We are pleased to share with you that we will be officially opening the CGS Netball and Tennis Courts on Saturday 6 April. The official opening will coincide with our 90th Anniversary celebration the Gala in the Grounds on the evening before on Friday 5 April, and the Sports Gala Day on Saturday 6 April.
We’d like to invite you to attend the official opening of the CGS Netball and Tennis Courts. Mr Stephen Byron (Chair of School Board), Dr Justin Garrick (Head of School), and Mr Ashley Hogan (Head of CGS Tennis) along with other key leadership and sports staff will also be there on the day.
The event programme is as follows:

If you’d like to attend this session in particular, please RSVP by replying to Ashley.Hogan@cgs.act.edu.au by Wed 3 April. Ashley will arrange your groupings and notify you by returning your email before 5 April. He will also brief the players before the event.
11:00am – 11:30am: A brief exhibition between two of Canberra’s favourite tennis players, Wally Masur (#15 in the world in the ‘90s) and Alun Jones (took Nadal to 4 sets in 2008 US Open).
