17 July - As many of you are aware, the Club has been developing proposals for floodlighting of the courts in the darker evenings. In March, Ingatestone & Fryerning Community Association (IFCA) made an application for planning permission for floodlighting. At its meeting on 17 July, Brentwood Borough Council’s Planning Committee overwhelmingly rejected the application on the grounds floodlighting would be harmful to the living conditions of residents. An appeal to the Planning inspectorate was submitted in December 2018.
8 July - A successful Club Open Day took place. Several dozen visitors enjoyed coaching, cardio tennis, a BBQ, speed of serve competition, ball machine drills, a raffle and a fun doubles tournament to round off the day. Photos coming very soon.
15-18 June - Pathway Repairs carried out
3 June - Club "Spring Cleaning Day"
9 & 13 April - The expanded Easter Coaching is a great success. 32 kids attended overall. Good feedback and some potential new members.
28 & 29 March - Drainage works are completed. It is hoped that we now have a permanent solution to our flooding problems.
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!
See the historical archive for all our older news stories (under "About Us").
The buttons show the club calendar of events for 2019 (some provisional).
STOCK CLEARANCE - Club T-Shirts & Sweatshirts - minimum donation £2 / £5 respectively. They're going fast.
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.
