Chair’s Report – 2013

What a great Summer!! Lots of lovely weather, plenty of play and I think, after the last few years, it was just what we needed.

In my opening report, I predicted an endless summer and it is still going strong now in October! It is always sad to see the light turn to dark with the prospect of winter on the way but at least it feels that we have had a decent summer.

My thanks as ever to Geoff for keeping the grass in tip top condition, to all the Team Captains for their hard work and to everyone on the committee who kept the club running smoothly.

Congratulations to all the winners of the Club tournament, I know we changed things around this year in order to try and encourage as many people as possible to take part and we will be reviewing the plans for the Club Tournament at our AGM in December.

Lastly just want to thank Hampshire L.T.A. once again for allowing us to keep the money that we should have paid back in the loan for the fence. Over the winter I hope to explore whether we can tap into other funding streams in order to replace the other half of the fence.

Do hope to see you all during the next few months, hopefully at one of the socials or at the AGM on Thursday 6th December (still plenty of shopping days left to Christmas!!)

We look forward to seeing you all soon.
