The beginners course has started well with 21 people signing up. The course finishes on the 4th of June and will end with a wine and pizza evening. All club members are invited to welcome new club members.
The AGM raised concerns about how late tournament allocation dates are. The committee met deciding that since the fixtures book is available from the first of February, the allocation dates for the B levels and the August week should be the first of March 2020.

Great weather for our Open Day held yesterday (Sunday 12th May) on Lawns 6 and 7. A good decision to run it during the morning and afternoon this year. People turned up at 10am and some at 4:30pm! Many thanks to the Peels Tournament Manager for allowing us to have these two lawns. We had some great support from 15 members who greeted, hosted, demonstrated, chatted and presented the Club in a good light to our 75 adult visitiors and 12 children. We have 21 potential members who say they will be coming to the Taster Course starting this Tuesday (14th May) at 6pm, with a few more "possibles" - and room for one or 2 more should you know of anyone who may be interested.
