Wanless Park Tennis Club Executive

Here is a listing of all current executives for the 2017-2018 term, and their job descriptions.



Job Description


Anne Fairlie - Bio

I have been a member of Wanless for about 20 years now. I was on the executive for about 8 years already. I was the Social Director for a few years; the Secretary for a year; as well as the Club President for a year in 2005.
Now that I am only working intermittently, I am spending more and more time on the courts. It felt like the right time to step up again and help out on the board. I am looking forward to guiding the Club forward with a team of eager new volunteers.
I would like to thank the present board for their ongoing work – Shirley Margolis, David Oliver, Brian Campbell, Joyce Lee-Assang, and Ian Marcus. I would also like to send a particular HUGE thank you out to Alan Maguire for his tireless years of dedication to the Club and the Board.
Looking forward to seeing you all at the AGM and on the courts – before the snow flies!

I have been a member of Wanless Tennis for approximately 15 years and I have been on the Executive for the past couple of years first as Secretary and then as Director of Membership and Communications.
My family and I are actively involved in the Club through House League, teams, socials and programs.
I am excited about the opportunity of working under Anne Fairlie’s leadership and striving to have Wanless Tennis continue to grow as an important part of the neighbourhood’s community life.
Looking forward to seeing you at the AGM!
