On 7th February Tarvin Tennis Club held its annual AGM, dinner, and social evening, at the Vicar's Cross Golf Club.
Members were welcomed by Chairman Rob Millar and updated on the club's plans for further development. Club Treasurer Allyson Clarkson reported on the healthy state of the club's finances and men's Captain Keith Barker gave his summary of the year's playing results for all the various competitions and leagues the club enters.
President Barry Cooper then presented the cups and trophies to the winners of the Club Tournaments, played over several months of the summer season.

The President then paid tribute and made presentations to retiring Men's Captain Keith Barker, who had served the club for 28 years, and to Ladies' Captain Wendy Rae for 22 years' service.
There followed a tasty and generous hot buffet provided by the golf club and a testing and thought-provoking quiz, won by Wendy's table – and not the strong table containing the club's losing finalists at the Tarvin Village Quiz three weeks previously!
"The club looks forward to another year of friendly and competitive tennis and exciting improvements to the club's playing facilities."
