Welcome to Swanmore Lawn Tennis Club
Welcome to SLTC
We are your local community tennis club run by volunteers on a not for profit basis. Come along and share our passion for all forms of lawn tennis and enjoy this social and competitive sport for all ages.
We hope you’ve all had a great Summer and have been taking full advantage of the warmer weather both here and possibly abroad. You will have noticed some changes at the club site with Courts 3 & 4 and the clubhouse having been cleaned and re-painted, and the manholes, drain covers, BBQ, benches and court fence support posts and tension wires given some attention.
Health & Safety
Please continue to not use the stiles and steps between courts 3 & 4 until these have been renewed/repaired.
Summer & Winter Programme & Swanmore College Usage
The closing Tournaments took place on 24th September with the Juniors running from 1100-1330 and the Adults from 1400-1700. All enjoyed a well organised and full morning & afternoon with everyone playing lots of tennis. The junior winners were Matthew Dillon with runner up Matthew Morris who were presented with sports vouchers, and the adult winners were Nicky and Joe who each won most games and were presented with a liquid momento for their efforts. Well done to everyone for coming along and to Mike and Barbara for organising the day for us and winners pictured on the home page.
The final evening mix-in session at the club site will be Friday 29th September and these will re-start in Spring 2018. Winter mix-ins will continue to run with Barbara on Wednesday pm and Sunday pm.
The AGM will take place at 1930 on November 23rd at St Peter’s church hall in Bishops Waltham. The annual Mince Pies and Mayhem event is on Sunday 10th December at 1400, but the Scraps & Dregs event is cancelled.
The Tuesday Club-Night at Swanmore College (SC), with Mike Johnson taking bookings from individuals, starts on 12th September at 1800-2000. Members are charged £4 per session and if space allows non-members may play at a charge of £10 with £4 of this given to club funds. The courts are then free for members to use on an ad-hoc basis from 2000 – 2100 and should be booked using Court 1 & 2 in the on-line booking sheet after Mikes booking that is there.
In January we shall consider whether to continue with this Tuesday night arrangement at SC for the 2018/2019 winter period dependent upon our usage.
AGM - Committee Membership
We are always keen for new members to join the Committee and continue to seek a new Chairman so please get in touch with any of the current committee members if you are interested in volunteering some of your time to the club and would like some further details.
Finally, as the nights draw in and winter approaches please be careful to check the courts prior to play and exercise caution on club grounds so that you enjoy your tennis for many years to come.
