Tarvin Tennis Club holds its 2015 Annual General Meeting on Friday, 27 February, at Vicars Cross Golf Club starting at 7.00 pm.
The AGM is followed by a buffet supper and a quiz. The Club welcomes all members old, new and prospective to the evening which is always an enjoyable event.
In addition to the normal business of the AGM and the presentation of cups to last year's tournament winners, the meeting will be updated on the progress towards the installation of floodlighting and the erection of a new club hut. A grant of £70K from Sport England represents a fantastic opportunity to update the Club's facilities, which will be a significant benefit to an expanding village.
It is hard to believe that the original wooden hut, which is a landmark on the field, was put up in 1934! Those of you who know the Club will agree that its replacement is well overdue.
The installation of floodlights on two courts will allow the Club to offer an all-year round junior programme. Currently, the juniors tend to be limited to coaching during the summer term and the floodlights will provide an opportunity to extend it.
The Club also hopes that family membership will increase, when parents who work and can only play in the evening and at weekends will have additional playing opportunities.
The cost of joining Tarvin Tennis Club is less, much less, than comparable clubs in the area, so allied to the improved facilities there has never been a better time to join!
