Wimbledon Ballot 2019

This will be on Sunday April 14. I will be working on the entries following the prior Sunday, April 7th, and selecting only those whose subscriptions have been paid at that point.

Club Tournament Sign-Up

The sign-up sheets for the club adult tournaments are now posted in the pavilion. So please get to it.

 

Toilets Project

You might have been aware that we have been planning to bulld a toilet facility attached to the tennis pavilion. In fact the project has been in gestation for a few years. However, yesterday evening, the board gave the go-ahead to this project, which we expect to start in the coming weeks and should take about three months. The building work, including the construction of a drain connection, is bound to be distracting, but it shouldn't affect access to the courts.    

 

Club Talk on Sunday

The next club talk will be this Sunday, Feb 17, at 6pm. Entitled “Using the immune system to cure cancer- the story behind the 2018 Nobel Prize for Medicine”, it will be given by David Sansom. 

Sunday Tournament Cancelled

The courts are mostly unplayable because of snow. Some have had snow cleared but are likely still to be slippery, so, if you choose to play take great care.

Next Club Talk - Feb 17

February's talk will be on Sunday Feb 17 at 6pm. Entitled “Using the immune system to cure cancer- the story behind the 2018 Nobel Prize for Medicine”, it will be given by David Sansom. 

Wimbledon Ballot 2019 - Final Opt In Advice

If you wish to participate in this year's Wimbledon ticket ballot you need to be a member of British Tennis and to have specifically opted in to the 2019 ballot. So far just over 200 of us have done so, but last season about 300 had opted in. Hence, it's likely that many of you will be disappointed if you fail to opt in before the cut-off date of Feb 22. It's easiest to phone them on 020 8487 7000, as you can enable opting in for other family members at the same time. Even if you're unlikely to wish to attend Wimbledon please can you opt in as the more of us that do so the greater the number of pairs of tickets we get allocated.
