Welcome to the New Tennis Year and thank you to all the members who braved the winter cold and turned up to play.
The top 3 courts were re-laid some 3 years ago and continue to play extremely well and remain the most used. While we are not planning to re-lay the surface on the bottom courts in the immediate future, we have removed the moss that has recently grown during the damp winter and they remain fully playable.
Thank you to the many members who have contributed to the club’s well being by playing social tennis; inter club matches and supporting the bar. Congratulations ‘also to the following teams who won their divisions during the winter season:
Last year the club maintained the number of Wimbledon tickets (10 pairs) allocated as a result of those members who opted in to the LTA Wimbledon ballot before the cut-off date. We also had a further pair provided by the Kent LTA. So an enjoyable day out was had at Wimbledon for 11 members and their guests. Thanks to all members who opted in last year and who have opted in again this year.
We will also be sending out regular email reminders to club members regarding upcoming events, such as American and Mixed tournaments and we welcome your participation in these events.
The new changing rooms and refurbished Hall were completed at the beginning of April. These improvements to the facilities will make the whole club a more attractive venue for players and visitors.
Finally, we always welcome new members, regardless of playing standard, so please encourage your friends and colleagues to join us and help increase our membership.
Facilities for members are as follows:
