The club has always had a good entry at the tournament but this year’s results must be the best ever across both the level and handicap events. Congratulations to all and a big thanks to all those who came down to watch and support.


As you are all aware we have been working on updating the club’s constitution. This is quite a long document which has needed updating for some time, but finally we are at a point where we can start to move forward.

1) Current constitution
2) Amended constitution
3) Suggested amendment notes

As this document forms the basis of the club we wanted to invite members to have the opportunity to contribute/offer suggestions for possible changes.

These documents will remain on the website until Friday 20th August and so please send in anything you want to suggest to by this time. At that point the committee will then look over everything we have received, agree any changes and then this will be sent to be checked from a legal point of view to make sure that everything is correct.

Once this is completed an EGM will be called where the new constitution can be either accepted or rejected by the members.

As mentioned by Gary in an email earlier this week, fobs are now available to replace swipe cards and can be collected from the clubhouse. Any problems or requests for fobs, please email

We are in the process of finalising dates/arrangements for this and will be in touch ASAP with details.

FRIDAY EVENINGS 13th/20th August
Just to mention that as there is no junior coaching for the next two Fridays so courts are free for booking up to 9.30pm.


Following our email on Monday about the very sad passing of Dave Monk, just to let members know that the funeral will be held on Thursday 19th August 12.30pm at Great Glen Crematorium.

Best Wishes OGTC
