May 2018 Newsletter
Welcome to our new staff members!
We have two new members of staff at the club;
Ger (not short for anything), is our new Club Supervisor and has now completed his training and is fully into the “swing” of things. Ger has a background playing tennis and has also worked as a supervisor in bars and restaurants.
Stella is our new Cleaner. If you have not met Stella yet I hope you will soon, she tends to work weekday mornings. She is a fantastic member of the team, works really hard and is always happy and smiling.
24 hour tennis marathon for RAINBOWS CHILDRENS HOSPICE
FRIDAY 18th MAY, 12 Noon – SATURDAY 19TH MAY, Noon
As you are probably aware by now, Sarah Wright is attempting to play tennis for a straight 24 hours to raise as much money as possible for our local Rainbows Children’s Hospice. Sarah is an amazing member of our club; she is a member of the committee, and coaches some of our top junior players. Nothing is too much trouble for Sarah and I really hope you will support her efforts this weekend by either coming along to watch her play or getting involved in the events we are doing to support her mammoth task!. If you can’t make it down to the club please donate whatever you can afford via the link below.
