    Dedham Tennis – AGM / Christmas Party / Signing Off


    the clubs AGM was held on Friday the 3rd Nov, thanks to all who attended and to all who supported the club in all forms this year. Some notables from AGM

    • club finances remain robust with £44k sinking fund (for court replacements in coming years)
    • club membership continues to trend upwards with a 50% increase in the last 3 years (in part due to new membership types)
    • a sub committee (Halford, Robert & Neil) was formed to focus on strategic facilities – specifically flood lights
    • Declining support for the Sunday afternoon club session was discussed at length – a proposal to move to Sunday mornings year round is being considered by committee. Any other suggestion on club sessions, please mail the committee
    • Caroline & Dan, after almost a decade of volunteering on the committee have stepped down – please drop the committee a line if you would like to support the club in 2018 by participating on the committee

    Christmas Party

    • A reminder the Christmas Party is Dec 9th, see here for details. Still a few places available – please drop Sachio a line. Note menu selections are due this week (by Nov 17)

    Signing Off

    • A Note from Dan Harty as outgoing chairperson “My 3 year term is up, my race is run as Chairperson of what is probably the best community tennis club in the world……I want to say a huge thank you to all those who supported the club over the last 3 years, particularly those who volunteered on the club committee & sub groups (link). Best of luck to the new committee in 2018″
