Dear Member,   

Hopefully we are now over the worst that the British winter can throw at us and we can look forward to Spring and warmth on our backs. It is also that time of year when club subscriptions are to be renewed and  we would be grateful if that could be done promptly as it makes life so much easier for the treasurer and membership people, tournament organisation and registering your interest in playing for one of our teams.


The 2017/18 subscription renewal form is enclosed and you can pay using one of the usual variety of methods. The traditional “signing up” day this year will be Sunday April 2nd from 11 am to 1 pm with ‘brunch’ and  social tennis on an informal basis, open to all standards of play (continuing into the afternoon) .  Wendy will be coordinating the social tennis and all contributions to the ‘brunch’ table will be very welcome.

Please note the deadline dates for subscription payment and annual tournament entry and it is also worth reminding you that you are not permitted to be nominated for, or play for, a club in the ADLTA leagues unless you are a club member.

Lastly, if you do not intend to renew , for whatever reason, please be good enough to let the membership Sec know and your name can then be removed from the circulation list.

A form is on the website under 'membership'


  • If you wish to play summer league tennis, and are not already on the captains’ radar,  please let me know and I will make sure the your services are offered to the selection committee. There are a number of new members, both adult and junior, who I am sure will welcome this opportunity for some competitive tennis.
  • We continue to pursue finance to allow us to proceed with floods for Court 1 and 2.   Having failed with last year’s application, our first stage application to the new Sport England Community Asset Fund is currently under adjudication.
  • Our tennis nets have been under attack from foxes and/or rodents. There must be an aphrodisiac in the waxed twine that they find irresistible! The holes have been repaired and bungees have been supplied to each net to keep them away from the surface when not in use. Please always put these back when you have finished play.
  • The courts are being jet washed and treated for moss etc starting  March 6th and will not be available for play until the evening of the 8th.
  • A Summer 2017 Club Session programme is attached for your info. The first Wednesday evening session will be on April 5th.

For routine activity please refer to the 'calendar' above.  League matches will also be added once decided in Mar.   Do note our attempt to add an all-comers adult social tennis session every last Sunday in the month running into a ‘brunch’.   I hope that becomes popular.  

See you at the first midweek club session.
