New Nets!!
The new LTA nets are up- please help us preserve them by tying up with the
bungy cords to prevent chafing.
We also have a new mini net thanks to LTA sponsorship!

Members and lapsed members!
If you haven’t already renewed your membership, do so now to get access to the courts over the Easter holidays! See attachment for membership form.
We have signed a new hire agreement with the CRA, please respect the conditions
of hire when using the courts (attached).

A reminder that all league players must be fully paid up CTC members before the
first match. Match fees are due each match from every player. Matches begin on Monday 21st April and are on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings.

Tarka Mixed Summer League
Anyone interested? Let CTC know by the end of April.

LTA/CTC Risk Assessment
Please take care accessing the courts if it is dark. Use a torch if necessary. One floodlight is not working on Court 1, so use the other courts at night.

CTC Tournament
To enter fill in your entry on your membership form (attached) or contact Andy (details below). Mens and Ladies doubles partners are to be drawn again this year. The Mixed can be entered as a pair if you wish but if you don’t have a regular partner Andy will try to find you one so please don’t be shy. For ease of administration the tournament entry fee is a one off £4 which covers all classes entered and also includes entry to the planned doubles ladder set to run throughout the year. Watch this space for more info on this.

Wimbledon Draw
If you wish to enter the club’s Wimbledon Ticket Ballot you need to have filled
in the relevant part of the membership form or contact Andy (details below) before the draw on Sunday 4th May.
