Monthly News

Court update:  As you can see, we have a new viewing fence which looks great and will significantly enhance the viewing experience.  The cost came in a little more than planned, so, at this stage, we do not have enough for scoring posts as well.  Any ideas or offers to help with fund raising for these would be greatly appreciated.  

All five courts and the patio have also been cleaned.  We would ask again to please stick to walking on the paths and not the grass so that we can try to keep mud off the playing surface.

 

Junior tennis:  Junior group tennis coaching will begin again on Saturday 12th January.   For more information please see the COACHING tab > JUNIORS.  We have some outstanding payments from last term.  Payments should be made electronically using these details:  Club's Account no: 49046077 Sort code: 09-01-28.  Please ensure that the member's name is used as the payment reference.  For any queries, please contact craig.tennis@outlook.com

 

Adult drills:  Craig is no longer able to offer the monthly Saturday drills before social but would like to promote Thursday evenings 8-9pm instead.   This is available to both members and non-members and can be tailored to whatever you may be looking for.  Pay on the day rate: £ 7 per 60 min session for members, £8.50 non members.  Maximum 8 people. 

If you are interested, please contact Craig or return this email.

 

Wimbledon Ballot:  The LTA are not making this straightforward this year but they know there's an issue on their website in that it's not an obvious process.  The deadline to opt in is February 22nd.  If you have not opted in you cannot be in the draw but also this will effect the club's allocation of Wimbledon tickets.  I have updated how to opt in under the WIMBLEDON tab and I will also be contacting people individually over the next month or so to remind you.  Any queries please don't hesitate to ask:  rebrose11@sky.com

 

New member taster:  As we did last year, we will be promoting a special offer to brand new adult members:   a free 2 month taster membership.  01 Feb- 31 March.  This is only available to those who have not been members before.  They will be eligible for free court hire and tennis socials only and will still have to pay non-member coaching rates.  If you know of anyone that might be interested, please pass this on.  Details are on our website under MEMBERSHIP.

 

New social tennis:  As well as tennis social on Saturday afternoons and Wednesday evenings, we are now offering Friday mornings from 10.30am.  This is open to all adult members and, as with all our socials, balls are provided.  Three courts are currently reserved for this but this can be increased if necessary.  A WhatsApp group just for this social will be available if you'd like to check who's going up.  Please return this email to be put on this group.
