British Tennis Membership (LTA)
We now have 50 signed up members, so a big thank you to all those who have taken the time to register. There are a lot of benefits for individuals doing this. One of the main attractions is the offer of Wimbledon tickets via the Club’s ballot, The more members we have, the more tickets we are offered. It’s quick, easy and free. Just go to and follow the instructions. Any questions, please get in touch.

Petition in Clubhouse
Gail Hogg has put a petition in the Clubhouse asking our members to oppose the proposed housing development in Bentfield Green. Please add your signature if you feel strongly.

A final reminder that the AGM is this Tuesday and the Committee would love to see you there.

Best wishes,
