It’s so good to see the days lengthening and the weather brightening and as I write, becoming a little warmer. The grass is growing and we plan to have the courts cut for the first time this season before St Patrick’s Day by our new groundsman, Chris Turner.
Since the club closed at the end of September, a new hedge has been planted to screen off the gates into Taney Green. The gates at our driveway have a new lock and are now secure.
We propose opening the club, weather permitting, on Saturday 28th April at 3.30pm and there will be tea at 5.30pm. Other dates for our diaries include the ‘At Home’ when the finals of our club tournaments will be played on Saturday 1st September. If the weather is very wet, it will be held over until Saturday 8th September. Tennis (again, weather permitting) will continue until the end of September as usual. Please make a note in your diaries that the AGM will this year be held at the clubhouse on Saturday 12th May at 3.30pm with tea and tennis afterwards. It is important to the club that everyone makes an effort to attend.
The juvenile coaching will commence on Monday 21st May at 7.15pm and Tuesday 22nd May at 2.45pm and will continue for five weeks with Lynda and Nicola at the helm. Further information on this will be circulated before Easter to 3rd to 6th Class pupils in Taney Parish Primary School with phone numbers for booking and information. Juvenile coaching is a very important part of our club and there may be some days that extra help is needed so, if asked by Lynda or Nicola, please try to make yourselves available.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again and fingers crossed for a warm and sunny 2018 season.
