David Straker has died

Most senior members (and quite a few juniors) will know David as he was a member of the club for many years. He was a key member of the team of volunteers who built the clubhouse in the 1980s, a past Chairman, captain of the men’s first team and always a very strong and enthusiastic supporter of the club. He especially enjoyed watching the Men’s 1st team play their matches, both home and away. There was always the feeling, even in recent years, that if they were ever one player short, he’d happily pick up a racquet and play!

He will be very much missed at the club and our thoughts go to his wife, Anne,  and his family at this very sad time.
