The following is an ‘Ask The Mayor’ question submitted to TLS, and the Mayor’s response. Email your questions for the Mayor to [email protected].


Hi Mayor Coles and thanks for your service and giving us this platform.

This question is not one that comes your way too frequently on this forum but here goes,

It would be an absolute privilege if you said yes to this, when the weather gets nicer would be willing to play a match of tennis at Pine Park?

Thanks, Avi.


Response from Mayor Coles:

Hi Avi,

I have not played tennis since I was in my 20’s over 40 years ago.

I would need some time to see if I can still swing a racket without throwing out my back!

I would very much be willing to meet and maybe get a lesson from you before agreeing to a full match!

Let me know

  1. LOL, i guess the Mayor has not visited the courts @ PP recently, had he done so he would be disgusted by the conditions! its EMBARASSING for our township to display such courts to the public. I have called Township so many times and of course NO RESOPNSE. Dear Mayor i would love for you to take a tour and visit the courts with some of us so we can show you what’s needed.
    Nets are ripped
    Courts are completely worn out
    Lights are not connected
