Fundraising - we need you!
The Club is looking for volunteers who would be interested in assisting with the future court renewal project at West End Tennis Club.
The current courts were laid in 2008. They have been well maintained but also well used. The typical life span of the surface is approximately 10 years (so expected end of life is 2018). The club needs to start planning for this court renewal as a standalone project. Additionally it is hoped to also install a hitting wall as part of this project.
Key to the project and timescales will be having sufficient funding in place. Estimated cost is £45k to renew the 3 doubles courts.
Membership fees are the only source of Club revenue.
All money over and above the club running costs is set aside into a sinking fund, specifically for court renewal.The sinking fund currently stands at £21k.
Grant funding and fund raising opportunities are being investigated.
You will have already received emails about shopping online via "Easyfundraising" and we are also looking for volunteers to assist with fundraising
