Club open day – a message from Joe

Club Open Day – Saturday, June the 23rd, 2012

The committee are organising an official opening of our new clay tennis courts at an Open Day on the 23rd of June. We will be inviting both the public and local tennis clubs to come and play on our new courts.

During the morning, there will be free coaching for local youngsters of all ages. At 3pm, the courts will be officially opened by Chris Hearn, followed by an exhibition match from Chris. Chris was a club member and our Club Coach for many years and this year he won the World Mixed Doubles Championships in San Diego, USA.

At 3.30pm, we open our courts free of charge to adults, both in the community and local tennis clubs. All the court activities on the day will be run by our Head Coach, Guy Britton. At 5pm, for a small fee, a BBQ will be available.

Because this type of clay court is new to South Bucks, it has stimulated a great deal of interest from other local tennis clubs. We are therefore expecting a few representatives from other tennis clubs to come along to view our new courts at the Open Day.

1st-Surface, the company that laid the courts for us, will be sending a director of their company to answer any technical questions that may be raised about the new clay courts.

The LTA have also shown interest in our new courts and will be helping with the promotion of our Open Day. We are expecting a representative from the LTA to attend the Open Day.

The BBC are also interested in having all the details of our Open Day on their website.

I am currently talking to our local newspaper, the Bucks Free Press, and they are showing interest in writing an article in the newspaper prior to the event.

See attached poster for more details.

To help us promote the day, please print a copy of the poster and persuade your local friendly corner shop or pub to have it placed in their window.

This should be quite a fun day, so please support your club by bringing your family as well as your tennis racket along to the official opening of the new tennis courts.
