News for Members by Jane Bowden

Singles League:

Please sign up soon! The league is due to start very shortly.

Club Tournament:

The draw for the club tournament will be done on Saturday 20th May so you need to sign up now! If you can’t get down to the club, contact Saul directly on saulabbiss@yahoo.com.

Refurbishment:

We have now got quotes for decoration and flooring and will be making suggestions re colours for members to give their opinions.

Congratulations:

To Mike Abrahamson who got married on Saturday 13th May and to Dan Austerfield on the birth of Naomi.

Coaching:

Saul, our new coach, has now finished his finals and we hope to get some information out very shortly about the new coaching programme. The aim is to initially match what OTB provided and then to develop the programme even further.

Wimbledon tickets:

We were allocated 5 pairs by British Tennis and an extra 2 pairs from Notts LTA. All these have now been allocated via the draw. The disappointing thing is that people are still not registering with BT or are failing to ‘opt in’ with BT each year. This means that we do not get a full allocation of tickets. In addition, some people who entered the draw had to be disqualified. Please look out for the reminders about opting in (usually sent out in September and February) and ensure that you do it even if you personally are not interested in tickets.

Thursday evening tennis:

It was great to see so many people down tonight despite the grim weather.

Next Committee Meeting:

Monday 22nd May so there will be social tennis beforehand. All welcome.

Jane
