EFLTC Newsletter

29th January 2021

From The President

It was great to see the grass courts overflowing with social players enjoying the great weather last Saturday.
Tuesday night social tennis is also full, the Thursday pennant training crowd is growing, Santa Maria High School will be using between 12 and 15 of our grass courts this term (Mon-Thurs, 3:30pm to 5:30pm), public hire of our hard courts is double what is was 5 years ago, and Tennis Factory’s coaching schedule is bursting at the seams. Pennants also returns this week and Club Champs is due to kick off in March.
This is (pleasingly) starting to create some scheduling challenges, but where clashes occur, we prioritise as follows:
  1. Scheduled Activities (Competition, Coaching, School and Social Tennis)
  2. Informally organised Social Tennis and Training sessions
  3. Book-A-Court (first-come first served) on hard courts and general Member use on grass courts
There’s plenty of room for more growth, but it may require some patience, understanding and adaption.
Let’s hope these challenges continue.
