Join us at the Northside Bizarre

VicTennis will again be entering a team in the masterbaker competition at the annual Northside Bizzare fundrasier to be held Saturday, 19 October, just next to The Laird Hotel, Abbotsford. All proceeds from the Northside Bizarre go to benefit Joy 94.9 and Thorne Harbour Health's (formerly VAC) David Williams Fund, two of the largest LGBTQI community organizations in Victoria.

We are looking for a group of talented bakers and top models to represent VicTennis by whipping up some of their secret recipes and strutting their stuff in their best tennis gear to help raise some money for a good cause and have a fun afternoon in the process.

If you'd like to be involved, please email or reach out to a member of the VicTennis committee by 13 October so we can organise logistics.

We will be competing against other Team Melbourne sports groups to see who has the best tarts, sweetest cupcakes and tastiest bits. Teams offer their goodies to the public for gold coin donations. There is a panel of guest judges and a People's Choice vote to decide which team left the best taste in the judges' mouths. Bragging rights and a trophy go to the winning team.

The Masterbaker event starts with table set up at 11:30am and wraps up with awards given out around 4:00pm. Ideally we'd have enough people to cover a couple of shifts so that you can also have time to enjoy other parts of the Bizzare.
