The 2017 Liverpool & District Tennis Group AGM will be held on Thursday 2nd November. Blundellsands tennis club are the hosts and it will begin at 8pm.
You can view the agenda below.
The first day of Wimbledon seems a good opportunity to announce our 70th Anniversary. For the occasion, Marc Black has produced a professional quality publicity graphic which will be used with other material to help promote the Group and its Clubs.
The graphic includes all Clubs participating in the Group today as well as many from yesteryear. There are a few names here which should jog a few memories.
The Group AGM will be held at Blundellsands Tennis Club at 8 pm on the 3rd November. Agenda and papers will be sent to Clubs immediately after our Committee meeting on the 18th October.
We will be trialling sending the paperwork by email as this has been requested by Clubs on a number of occasions. Previously, sending items by email has met with mixed success as when we ask for return confirmation we generally only get about 20 responses (from 25) and are never sure that the email has been received by all Clubs.
Could you please ensure that your contact email in the Group Handbook is live and monitored as this will be a great help. The email will also ask for return confirmation so please take a moment to reply.
We look forward to seeing you at the AGM
A brief reminder to all Clubs that you will be receiving the agenda for the Group AGM in the near future and all Clubs are requested to send a representative to the meeting.
As requested, we have put the 2015 AGM minutes online and they can be found by clicking this link. Could you please ask your representative who attended the 2015 AGM to check that these minutes are correct so they can be properly approved at the meeting.
Now that we are approaching the end of the 2016 league season it’s time to remind you all that our annual presentation night will take place on Friday 23rd September 2016. It will be held once again at the West Lancashire Golf Club.
Pauline should have contacted all clubs with ticket information but if you haven’t received any correspondence then please get in touch with us!
Clubs will have received notification from Pauline about the Fixtures Meeting on Thursday. One of the issues raised at the AGM was the concern over the Opt in process and the allocation of Wimbledon tickets.
As requested, we have contacted the LTA and their response can be found here. Another email is promised before the meeting and if received will be posted on this website.
As always, the Committee is looking for new members. Currently, we only have one lady on the Committee and obviously the ladies section is under represented. If you want to learn more about the work of the Committee and what’s involved, please contact us.
Look forward to seeing you on the 11th.
