We were pleased to welcome beginners and experienced players to our club to experience our free tennis taster sessions on the 27th April and the 7th May.
We were very lucky with the weather and both events attracted lots if keen players of all ages. An enjoyable time was had by all, including existing members who turned out to meet and play with our visitors. We were proud to show off our wonderful floodlit tennis courts and newly renovated clubhouse.
Jon, our club coach was kept very busy hitting balls with new players and his enthusiasm and sense of fun was well received! There was also a lot of interest in the coaching sessions and club sessions.
Thank you to everyone who came along and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! For those new members who have joined the club, a very warm welcome and any questions, please contact one of the committee members (our phone numbers are on a poster outside the clubhouse) who will be pleased to help you.
If you are interested in joining the club, please contact Angela (Club Secretary) on 07801 290606

I hope you have all enjoyed your tennis at Trull this year, however it is that time of year when we have to start asking for renewals for April 2022 – March 2023 season. The committee has reluctantly felt the need to increase membership fees this year. This is due to several factors including making an operating loss for the last 2 years, increased cleaning and maintenance costs, and with a further increase in electricity costs anticipated for this year. This year’s adult membership fee will be £120. I do appreciate that this appears to be a significant rise, however please bear in mind that in 2020 we only charged 50% fees and in 2021 we only charged 75% membership fees, of what they would have been in 2020 (had covid not hit us all).
Please can everyone complete the Renewal Form (attached). Completed forms should be sent direct to Janet Woodman at firstname.lastname@example.org and payment into the club’s bank account (and remember to put your surname as payment reference). This is the only way that we can ensure that all the details the Membership Secretary holds are correct. As previously we cannot accept cash or cheques, however you can go into your bank with a cheque and pay it in to the club’s bank account direct using the sort code and account number, if you do not have access to online banking. Please note that there will be a £10 late payment fee for any renewals received after 31st March 2022, so don’t delay, renew ASAP!
Despite Covid, I think we as a club have done pretty well to survive and we hope that in 2022-23 season we can continue to increase membership numbers, provide more coaching and club night opportunities, friendly and competitive tournaments, matches and social events for all.
