We hope everyone is getting back into their tennis after Christmas/New Year despite the rather cold and misty conditions this week. A few items for you, as below.
Many thanks to all those who have renewed their memberships for 2022. For those members who would like to take advantage of the early payment discount please remember that payment must be made by 31st January.
Membership fees and categories can be found on the link below:
Preferred payment is by bank transfer to:
Oadby Tennis Club
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org when payment has been made and you will receive a confirmation email when payment is seen in the club accounts.
If paying by cheque, then please post to the club along with a note with membership fee breakdown and I will send an email when I have received it.
Just a reminder to please consider a 100 Club ticket or two – it’s a chance to win some cash prizes during the year and helps raise money for the club and keep membership fees low.
VOLUNTEER HELP NEEDED
Paul Heighton Towers is in need of volunteer help this Sunday (23rd) 1-3pm to help with some court maintenance work (putting sand on courts, clearing area at back of courts, hedge trimming). If anyone can help, please either email him on email@example.com or text him on 07981 733465. Thank you.
MONEY IN FLOODLIGHT BOXES/VISITORS BOX
Can we please remind members again that only £1 coins should be used in any of the boxes to make payments. (A £5 note has recently jammed one of the boxes!). Visitors’ fees (£3 per non-member) can be paid by bank transfer, if preferred, using bank details as under Membership item above.
USED MATCH BALLS
We have some used match balls available for purchase at £1 a can. Available in the clubhouse in cardboard box. Payment in the usual balls box, please.
LTA LEAGUE SURVEY
We have recently received a survey regarding senior league tennis matches.
The Leicestershire Competitions Committee is keen to hear from as many tennis players as possible so please take a look/complete if you are a senior league player/potential league player.
The review covers playing format /structure of the leagues to enhance enjoyment of the leagues offered/consider the length of the matches in some cases. The Competitions Committee is also considering whether to eliminate undecided rubbers in the Winter League, Over 40s and Over 60s leagues with options offered as to how this could be achieved without making matches substantially longer. They are also considering the future of the Men’s Doubles Premier League.
