Report of the Tennis Sub Committee meeting 30th September 2010

The following is a brief summary of matters discussed at this meeting:

Alan Gordon and Nicky Ponsford were welcomed to the Committee.

Hilary Ball agreed to temporarily continue as the Club’s Fixture Secretary as no replacement volunteer has come forward yet.

John Cliff and Hilary Ball attended the Winter Fixture Meeting.   We are running the same teams as last year, 11 in the Dorset League and 2 Ladies Friendly.

Results in future will be entered on to the LTA website by Team Captains.   A list of team Captains is on the board in the tent.   If any other team players are interested in taking on the captain’s role, please contact John Cliff.

Juniors.    Milford Under 9s won the Clash of Clubs, winning all thirteen matches.   The Shield presented will be displayed in the new Clubhouse.   The Junior/Senior Tournament was very well supported.   The next one is on 5th December.

Wendy Rouse has agreed to join the committee to be the contact point for Rusty Racquets.   Sara Charles will now look after Tuesday morning Ladies.

The Wednesday Club session will stop at 5.00 pm when the clocks change.   

Mixed Adult Coaching is re-starting 6.30 pm on Thursday evenings.

The New Members and Open Day on 25th September went well and we hope the Club has gained four or five new members.

The American Tournament and Supaset Singles on 3rd October were cancelled.   Watch the Board/Website for new dates.

The Rosemerryn Bowl and Christmas Lunch on 12th December was postponed and will be rescheduled once we have the new Clubhouse.

Drawn Partners will be run by Nicky Ponsford and commence on 22nd January.

Planning is proceeding on the resurfacing of Courts 1, 2 and 3 in the Autumn of 2011.

The ball machine is now under the control of the coaches and a new system for its use will start in January.
