Survey of Junior Coaching Members

The Club in conjunction with Chris Matthews have decided to conduct a survey of the Junior Coaching Membership. In practice, the contact details we hold are those of the parents. We leave it to you whether parent or junior completes the survey (hopefully you can do it together). Only one response per Junior Coaching Member please.

To complete the Survey, please click on link at bottom of page.

The questionnaire only takes about 5 minutes to complete and the responses are completely anonymous, i.e. we will not know from who, or from what device they are sent from. If you would prefer to identify yourself, please do so via the final question.

The information will be used to help shape our Junior Programme of the future, so please let's have a good response. The closing date for the survey is February 28th 2018, and we intend to publish the results once analysis is complete.

With best wishes

John Price

Urgent News - Membership fees likely to increase by up to £30 per year!!!


An email was sent out some weeks ago advertising for a new Honorary Secretary. So far no one has come forward. Our club depends on volunteers so that it can provide excellent tennis facilities for its members and also keep costs down.

The Club will be unable to run without a secretary and if we have to pay a non-member or secretarial service to do this work from January 2017 the only way that we can recoup costs is by increasing the membership fee.

It is likely that the full annual membership fee will need to increase by approximately £30 if we have to pay for this service.

So: we would really like to hear from a member who would like to fulfil this role. The task is important but not arduous and is likely to take no more than about 3 hours per week. If you are interested please contact John Price (Chairman).

A role description is attached and can be viewed in the downloads section of this web site.
