WELCOME

I would like to extend a warm welcome to existing and potential new or returning members to Pewsey Tennis Club and trust that you will all have an enjoyable tennis season.  Our club remains one of the best in Wiltshire with superb facilities that we maintain to high standards. The lines on Courts 1&2 will be re-painted in the Spring and Court 3 is likely to be power-washed. We also plan to re-surface Courts 4&5 in August.
 
We are good shape financially but ever mindful of costs. We have therefore raised subscriptions by 3% as required by our LTA grants of 2005/06 but overall believe our subscriptions offer exceptional value for money and hope that you will benefit from using the Club as much as possible.
 
SUBSCRIPTIONS are due on April 1st and for the month of April at discounted rates. Membership forms can be downloaded here  or collected from the clubhouse. For juniors who regularly have group coaching, it is financially beneficial to become a club member.  Please the the membership form for details on paying by BACS.
 
We would also like to encourage all members to become British Tennis Members as well, it is free, just logon www.lta.org.uk/BritishTennisMembership. You need to be an opted-in BTM to enter the Club’s Wimbledon ballot.
 
OPENING DAY OF THE SEASON IS SUNDAY 12TH APRIL WITH A ROLL-UP TOURNAMENT FOR EVERYONE AT 10 A.M. and the WIMBLEDON BALLOT will take place at 12.30 p.m. prompt!!    To qualify for the Wimbledon Ballot you must have paid your subscription, be an OPTED-IN British Tennis Member, be aged 9 years & older AND attend the Ballot on the day. 

We believe that Team Captaincy needs to be recognised / rewarded and this year we will hold an inaugral Captains Ballot for one pair of tickets. This was unanimously supported at the recent Club AGM. 

The new summer league season commences on Monday 27th April and practise sessions will commence in late March. We would really like to see more Ladies putting their names forward to play competitively. I would like to thank in advance our respective Mens/Ladies/Mixed Club Captains, Nick Hewens, Marijke Craig and Paul Coxon for all their hard work alongside Matthew Popham, our Match Secretary and all team captains – have a great season!!
 
And finally on the social front we hope to hold a FREE BBQ for all members in the summer after a fancy dress mixed doubles tournament on Sunday 28th June.
 
Enjoy your tennis,
 
Colin Gratton
Chairman
