Jack Petchey Leaders Award

This is just a reminder that it’s that time of year when we need to vote for a Jack Petchey Leader award recipient.
The criteria for this award is that the Leader award winner must be over 21 years of age and been involved with SHLTC LTD for at least 2 years demonstrating their support in the club and helping to motivate young people aged 11 – 25 either directly or indirectly.
The award can be won by a playing member or a parent who contributes to the club. This award can only be won once.

Previous winners:
2010 Jenny Cripps
2011 Phillip Layfield
2012 Luke House
2013 Sophie Berseford Allen
2014 John Ratcliffe
2015 Alison Sarıdoğan

We would like people to nominate someone who they feel should be put forward for this award and the reasons why.

If you could email nominations to Alison Sarıdoǧan at: by 25th October 2016. We will then let everyone know the nominations and ask everyone to vote for the person they feel they would like to receive the award (either by email or in the box in the club house).

It will be a secret vote and the winner will be announced at the club’s presentation in January.

Many thanks

Well done to all members who represented the club over the weekend.  Some fantastic results, especially for the juniors!

Only 3 fixtures this weekend, so court availability should be fine.

NK Presentation Night:  Well done to Rich Fay and Maria Perfect and her Ladies 1 team who collected their respective trophies on Saturday night.  Thanks to all members who went along to support our players.  I hope you like the photos!

Wimbledon 2017 – Opt-In Time:  Well done to all those members who have opted in so far.  We have had over 100 members do so.  Please note, there is still time to do this, so please follow the instructions on the LTA website to avoid missing out.

Halloween American Tournament:  The sign up sheet is inside the clubhouse (takes place on Sunday 30th October @2pm).  Please do not miss out, as I believe there is a fancy dress competition as well as the tennis!

Many thanks.

Club Captain,

Phil Layfield.
