It still cold and dark outside, and if you are like me you will be struggling with your post Christmas weight problems. So as a little impetus to help you focus on getting fit for the the new season. I can announce that the 2018 AGM will be held at Claremont Tennis Club on Monday, March the 5th at 7:30pm.
The season will be here before you can say, These scales can’t be right!
Make a date for your diary – Friday 8th September – when we can all get together and have a good night out! You’ll get to see what your team-mates look like when they’re fully clothed, hair brushed and wearing make-up – and that’s just the men!!
Bring your friends and family – it’s about socialising, after all.
Tickets cost £7.50 and include a DJ and fish’n’chip supper. You’ll also see who won those leagues you’ve struggled in this year- I always say it’s the taking part that matters (?).
Looking forward to seeing you at Leigh Cricket Tennis and Bowling Club.
Tickets are available behind the bar, or from me. Stop me and buy one!
As most people now have a phone which is capable of taking photos.
We have decided to trial emailing a photo of the results card, instead of sending it through the post.
The card should be emailed to Pauline Ashton, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please keep your hard copies of all your cards, until the end of the season.
And please ensure that the photos are of reasonable quality, so that the correct results can be recorded on the website.
This week finds us halfway through the season. Doesn’t time fly? All the League Trophies should be returned to Caroline or Marjorie before the end of June so they can be checked. Please clean them before returning.
