Facilities update:  

Our new project to lower the fence next to court 1 to enhance the viewing experience, is scheduled to begin on Monday 10th December and should last 2-3 days.  This may effect play on court 1.   

In November a working party filled in the holes in the road (which have already reappeared), fixed the gutters and partially repaired the base concrete at the hitting wall although more needs to be done here.  The back drops were also taken down to allow for the winter sun to get onto the courts and melt any ice and frost quicker.  

Jobs for the future include cutting back the overhanging trees in the car park and down by courts 4 and 5.  Martin is also currently sourcing some scoreposts.
