Beer and Wine Tournament 

The annual Beer and Wine Fun Tournament will take place on Saturday 24th June commencing at 5.30 pm. Please arrive promptly so that doubles pairings can be organised.

Sign Up sheets will be put up in the Clubhouse in the next few days and the cost to enter will be £10.00 which covers alcohol consumption.  There will be an opportunity to order a ‘Take-Away’ at an additional cost for those that want it.

Shoe Tags and British Tennis Membership

There are still quite a few people who haven’t collected their shoe tags yet.    Please see below some more times when I will be at the Club to issue them. 

Monday 5 June 5-6pm
Tuesday  6 June 5:30-6:30 pm
Wednesday  14 June 7:00 – 8:00 pm

British Tennis Membership
We ask all members of the Club to become British Tennis members.  As a member of Radyr LTC (affiliated to the LTA) you will receive free British Tennis membership.   Anyone playing team tennis, either Adults or Juniors needs to be a British Tennis Member.

Club Communications

I hope you are all able to enjoy this fabulous tennis playing weather, and of course getting those tournament matches fixed up and played! The captains really appreciate those members that get their games played on time, and this in turn will facilitate a timely draw for the plate competitions, of which 2 are newly introduced this season.

The club have a number of ways in which members can get in touch, so I thought it would be a good idea to summarise what the options are, and who sees those emails, and answers those calls. 

Junior Captains, Wimbledon Draw and Court availability

I am very pleased to announce that Rhian Jones and Nick Lai are our Junior Captains this year, and that Elis Midha has agreed to act as a deputy having lost out out narrowly. I trust that they will be well supported both by the other juniors, and parents, particularly in the running and organisation of the junior tournament later in the season. I must apologise for the very short notice that was given for the “Junior AGM” and commit to having a better process next year. 

Wimbledon, Club Tournament, Bin Fairies and Volunteering

Just a reminder that the Wimbledon Draw sign up sheets are in the clubhouse on the bar door for a chance to have access to one of 28 pairs of tickets during the fortnight. If you  would like to enter our club ballot and are eligible, please sign up with your British Tennis Membership number as soon as possible. Adding your BTM number really does save Lynda a lot of effort looking up each one where they are missing. For eligibility and further details, please read the “small print” alongside the sign up sheets.
