NEWSLETTER - TABLE TENNIS IS BACK (Week of 10 February 2020)

Greetings Graftonites,

Table tennis is back on the Grafton social scene and we really hope to see several squash and tennis players, as well as socialites / generalists with bats in hand, so do read on :

***If you want 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.***


TABLE TENNIS SOCIALS (Thurs 20 Feb, 7pm)

Now that we have two tables permanently in situ (plus equipment) it’s time to start playing!

Starting Thursday 20 February 7pm there will be weekly sessions including a round robin tournament, so however seriously you take the game, come on down. With the Racketlon tournament due in mid May (more on this soon) you’ll need to hone your skills. A coach Lew Hodges (ex Grafton) is coming on the 20th to show us how it’s done.

There's also talk of reviving the table tennis ladder, so plenty to keep us entertained while Ciara's in town...


WIMBLEDON OPT-IN (deadline Fri 14 Feb)

Every year we run an internal ballot at Grafton for tickets to go to Wimbledon. In order to be eligible you must have opted in beforehand. Not only that, you have to also be sure that according to the LTA your home club is Grafton. These are requirements set by the LTA. Don't miss out on the chance of even entering the Grafton ballot because you didn't opt-in beforehand. It really only takes a couple of minutes to do!

Please go to the LTA website to opt in and to make sure that your profile shows Grafton as your home club. The deadline's this Friday!

Thanks


INTERIM SURVEY RESULTS

We would like to thank the 183 of you who participated in the Club Development Survey. A report identifying the outcomes of the survey is now being prepared by the Development Committee. This is a large project and will take time to prepare. In the interim, we would like to advise:

· There is tea, coffee and biscuits offered on an honesty box basis in the kitchen, please feel free to make use of this *new service* especially when the bar itself is closed.
