The number of tickets the club receives depends on the number of members who register for the club ballot. You are encouraged to help the club maximise its allocation by registering, irrespective of whether you intend to apply.
Registration is through the LTA web site. The AGM next Wednesday is an ideal opportunity to register as we will have the equipment and expertise on hand to assist.
You are reminded that the club’s AGM is next Wednesday in the clubhouse at 8pm. This is an important opportunity to hear what the club is doing and planning so please make the effort to attend and support HLTC.
If you are unable to attend, please send apologies to the Secretary, Sue Darwent – email firstname.lastname@example.org
There are a number of straightforward tasks that are required to be done to keep the grounds looking in great shape, including painting the Meols Drive fence. Any time you are able to spend on 26th January will help spread the load. We plan to start at 9:30.
You may have noticed that the exposed wood of the decking has been cordoned off. It will remain so until the Committee are confident that the risk of slipping on the exposed wooden surface is minimised – ie when the weather is warmer and drier! We are also investigating permanent solutions to the problem but these will not be in place until next winter.
Harry Cross aka Yogi Bear will be sadly moving on this year to his full time job away from tennis. He’s worked incredibly hard and deservedly picked up his masters degree.
Harry is one of a kind, full of energy, a bubbly personality, kind, hard working, committed.
He volunteered aged 13 to coach for me, money was not his motivation then, he just wanted to help others and loved working with children, something I believe the next generation of coaches should appreciate. It was then easy to offer him a part-time job through gaining his level 1 & 2 qualifications. I don’t believe I could ever find as good as assistant as Harry, me, my team, the kids and the members will all miss him. I wish him all the best in his future and hope he gets everything he deserves!
Just a short reminder that there are two pre-Xmas events this coming weekend.
On Friday, from 7:30pm, we are holding a Xmas party in the Clubhouse. Entry is £5 per person, plus a plate of party food! Dress code is smart.
On Sunday, at 2pm, we are hosting a Xmas Drinks party. Programme includes carolling, 100 Club draw, and prestigious awards to some deserving members.

A new system has been introduced to allow members to book courts for use under floodlights.
There is a monthly booking sheet and a supply of tokens behind the bar. Bookings are in 45 minute slots; a token for the same time costs £6.
The bar is open throughout the winter on Wednesday evenings during and after social tennis.
