The Welgemoed Plate horse racing competitions took place on 25 March 2017 and again on 25 August 2018. This fantastic fundraiser entails betting on old televised horse races and encourages club and community members to let their hair down for a night and drink, gamble and socialize at the tennis club for a worthy cause. Through the great generosity of all that attended these events, as well as the valuable contributions by the sponsors of the different horse races, we raised more than R22 000 for the club through two The Welgemoed Plate evenings.
The club also hosted a Bring & Braai and highly successful Raffle competition on Saturday 24 March 2018. With exciting prizes such as a Ferrari trip to the Cape Winelands, a 2-night stay in the InnsCape on Castle Hotel in Cape Town and R5 000 in cash, we sold more than 250 Raffle tickets. Including the revenue from drinks sold from the club’s beautiful new bar, we were able to raise R22 000 for Welgemoed Tennis on the evening.
