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

Results as follows:

Kent Ladies 1 beat Kemsing 3.  Team comprised Julie Cooper (Captain), Maria Perfect, Julia Smith and Veronica McNamee.

Great start to the season ladies!  Well done to our new Kent ladies 1 captain Julie.

Unfortunately the men’s Fast 4 Tennis was postponed.  I’ll keep you all informed of the new date.

5 fixtures this weekend!  It has started again!!  Thanks to our fixtures secretary, Veronica McNamee, who has printed off the fixtures which can be found inside the clubhouse.

Well done to all who were involved in the 2 Macmillan events over the past week.  Over £600 was raised.  I think you will agree with me the cakes this year were the best ever!  Thank you to all who supported such a great cause and gave so generously.

The North Kent Presentation night is fast approaching.  Saturday 15th October at 7pm.  If you would like tickets, please ask Dan House.

Many thanks.

Club Captain,

Phil Layfield.
