Notes from AGM Feb 2019

March 6, 2019

The lovely, but unseasonal, weather we have been having is a reminder
that the new tennis season starts soon. You will pleased to learn that
subscriptions remain the same as in 2018. We are looking into the Club
Spark membership scheme which will involve some changes to our banking
arrangements. Jill, our membership secretary, will be in touch soon
explaining all.

Unfortunately we have received resignations from two of our committee
members. Stuart Jefferies has resigned from the General committee and
Judy Chesterfield as our Treasurer. Judy has been a member of the Tennis
Club since 1954 and Treasurer since 2011. Her expertise and knowledge of
the club will be sorely missed and we would like to thank her for all
her hard work and long service to the Club. We propose to recognise this
more formally at an appropriate date in the future.  Stuart's
challenging contributions will also be missed. David Lewis has been
appointed as our new Treasurer. Alan Grimwood and Graham Rudge have
joined us as committee members.

We had hoped to have the courts resurfaced by now. Unfortunately the
contractors were delayed so we had to put it on hold. The good news is
that all being well ETC hope to start around the middle of March
completing the resurfacing and temporary lines before Matt’s Easter
holidays camps. Court painting will be done at a later date. We are
looking into the use of other courts whilst our courts are out of
action. We will keep you informed.

We are considering entering a second Men’s team into the Ipswich and
District Summer League. This will involve playing about 8 evening
matches (4 home, 4 away) between May and August. The team consists of 6
players (3 pairs) playing 4 sets. Please let Matt or I know if you are
interested in playing, or would like to know more, before March 10th.

At this time of year it is difficult to know if it is worth making the
effort to attend a club night on Tuesday and Thursday evenings not
knowing who will be there. Is anyone interested in using the WhatsApp
Messenger service? Please let me know.
Don’t forget Matt runs a cardio session 6-7pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays
and club sessions follow on from these. Having attended cardio you will
be nice and warmed up for the club session.

Our coach Matt also runs two other group sessions for anyone wanting to
up their game no matter what their ability or tennis experience is.
Wednesday mornings 09:30 – 10:30 which, unfortunately, isn’t well
supported. If you are interested or would prefer it on another day
please contact either Matt or myself. The other session, Tennis Xpress,
is every Friday 18.30 -19:30. This is an improver session for any adult
wanting to feel more confident during club sessions or those who are
brand new to tennis and want to use this as a starting point. Each group
session costs £6 per person

Unfortunately we had to cancel the club’s winter social at The Bell @
Sax due to lack of numbers able to attend. Instead we are going to make
the most of our first of the month ‘Tuesday Tournaments’  by running a
BBQ as well. The first will be on Tuesday 7th May. I will remind you
nearer the time.

We are going to introduce a new way of supplying balls for club
sessions. The buckets will be taken away and be replaced by a can of
balls per court. Each can will have a sticky label with the numbers 1 -
4 written on them. At the start of play the person collecting the balls
from the clubroom will cross off one number until the balls have been
used 4 times when they will be replaced. I will leave a supply of pens.
Please leave them in the clubroom. This will start on 1st March. Please
give it a try.  Match captains can you return once used balls to me please.

Thank you to everyone who have been playing Friday evenings at David
Lloyd with Woodbridge Tennis Club especially all who have stood in at
the last minute. I hope you have enjoyed it.

Looking forward to an enjoyable and successful 2019 season of tennis

Kind Regards,
