NEWSLETTER - AMERICAN DOUBLES & AFTER PARTY (Week of 12 Mar 2018)

Greetings Graftonites!!!

Before we get tied down with our various announcements, it's worth mentioning that, if our sources are to be trusted, we have two(!) Grafton authors who've recently published books... (see Facebook). Well done to both!

And now, to our weekly broacast:

- AMERICAN DOUBLES BONANZA
- VOTING FOR TENNIS COURT SURFACES
- TENNIS SUMMER CHAMPS REMINDER
- DATES FOR YOUR DIARY

***If you wish to put an announcement in next Monday’s broadcast, the only way to do so is by sending your broadcast to graftoncomms@gmail.com by Friday 6pm.***


AMERICAN DOUBLES & AFTER PARTY (Sat 7 April from 2pm)

The days are slowly getting longer, and spring may just be thinking about making an appearance (today's rain notwithstanding). That means it must be almost time for our annual American Doubles extravaganza!

Put Sat 7th April in your diary and join us for this light-hearted tournament where you’ll switch doubles partners after every ‘mini set’. The race to become the 2018 Champion is sure to once again throw up a few surprises this year.

Entry includes Tea, Cakes, Sweet Treats, a Sweepstake and of course the first Grafton Party of the year!!!

If you’re new to the club, it’s a great way to meet members and get to know Grafton a little bit better.

No need to register; just arrive at 1:45pm on the day and be ready to get spring off to a flyer!


VOTING CLOSES SOON (Sat, 17 Mar at 6pm)

For those of you who may still be mulling over your preferred choice of tennis court re-surface, please register your vote in the ballot box at the bar, by 6pm on Saturday 17th March.

Having been open for nearly a month, it's almost time to close the ballot box and count your votes. If you haven’t yet voted and are not able to make it to the club in time, please contact Murray or Tim, who will try and work out an extension for you.

We’ll announce the results w/c 18th March- Happy Voting!
