ANNUAL REPORT 2016-17
|The tennis club has had mixed fortunes this year. The work that the parish council did in removing two trees that were adjacent to court number 2 has resulted in a real reduction in the amount of moss on the court. I would like to thank the parish council again for removing these trees and particularly to Alastair who carried out the work free of charge. Unfortunately, we are experiencing some moss on one side of court number 1 where there are a couple of large trees alongside the court. We have been treating this small area of moss with moss killer throughout the autumn and winter and this is just about keeping the moss under control.
The Club’s men’s team did well in 2015 and finished top of their league and were promoted to league one, but the competition in the top league proved very demanding last year. However, the team is hoping for greater success in 2017. We have also entered a mixed doubles team in the league this year. We are always looking for new team members if anyone is interested.
We have run junior coaching again and had about 20 youngsters involved each week. Sue Robinson will be running this again in 2017; £30 for seven one hour sessions.
We hold open club sessions for social tennis on Tuesday and Thursday evenings during the season and have been running a popular frostbite club session on Saturday mornings during the winter months.
Our biggest problem is low membership despite running a large promotion campaign over the last couple of years. This year we have reduced membership fees significantly for new members. With just £35 for adult membership, £10 for junior membership, up to 21 years of age, and only £60 for family membership we are hoping this will appeal to local people. If you are interested in knowing more please contact me, Steve Woodford on 01788 561996 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
