Thank you to all the members who attended the AGM, it was an excellent meeting and the wine and cripsts set a good atmosphere.

Many thanks to Trisha Esplin who has been Chair for 6 years and has steered the club through the challenges of covid, the great flood in the clubhouse and has ensured the club is in a good postion for the futre (and has a new kitchen).

The new Chair of the club is William Freeman who we all know will be excellent in this role. Tim Rumsey is the new club secretary and Richard Yaxley is taking on the committee role looking after the grounds.

The meeting voted on a subscription rate increase of 5%, this is the first subscription increase in two years.

Please note the fencing surrounding courts 3 and 4 will be replaced this spring, dates to be confirmed.

Date for your diary, WImbldeon Opener June 29th.



Just to remind all members (and the new joiners) that only the members with valid subscription can book courts.
