February 2017: Co-op Community Card Scheme
As some of you may have seen from our Facebook page, the tennis club has signed up to the Co-op card scheme (see details attached), and Charlotte has cards for any of you who would like one. If you shop in any Co-op branch, including Quadrant in Chelmsford, for every pound spent the club gets points which can be cashed for fundraising activities. Co-op even donates 50% on top. Doesn't cost you anything!
"Hurricane Doris" causes some damage to fencing. Some remedial repairs were carried out on 25th February, and again on 18th March, with more substantial ones to follow.
December 2016: Brentwood Council have provided guidance on matters to be considered within any formal application which might be made re planning permission for floodlighting; The tennis club will be seeking professional advice in this regard, and have set up a sub-committee to progress matters.

Dear Club members and supporters
We have been trying unsuccessfully to find a contractor to lay paving slabs between the Clubhouse and the courts (approx 6m x 3.5m). We would like to get this work done as soon as possible. It’s a fairly straightforward job but will involve removing the grass surface, levelling out and laying the slabs.
Do you know of anyone who has done similar work that might be able to undertake this at a reasonable rate? If so, please let us have their contact details. Thanks.
