Spring 2017 | Published: April

What’s going on at Harrow Weald Lawn Tennis Club? Bring on the summer tennis season – we’ve prepped the grounds, the team matches are arranged and we’re ready to get started! In our April 2017 newsletter, you’ll be able to find out more about improvements in the Club, HWLTC opportunities and social dates.

Would you like to volunteer to help the Club? As a non-profit making members club, we are wholly reliant on volunteers to run facilities, events and more. If you would like to help out, please make yourself known to the HWLTC Committee.

Quiz Night Our annual quiz sees ten teams of four pit their wits against each other to be crowned HWLTC Quiz Champions! Contact Mark to reserve your table at markycopple@hotmail.co.uk. Twitter | Facebook | YouTube: HWLTConline

Mind the invisible bar step Missing: the bar step. It’s gone, never to return. So you’ll need to mind the invisible step from now on and enjoy sliding across the shiny new even floor!

Thanks to all our helpers Thanks to all our members and friends who have volunteered to plan and carry out maintenance on the inside and outside of the clubhouse over the last few months. We hope the drainage fixes next to the courts will prevent further flooding – we’ll just need some big rain to test it out. There’s always more to do, but we hope you’ll agree that it’s all looking much better – go team HWLTC!

Subscriptions due now Annual membership subscriptions are due for renewal this month. To take advantage of the discount, your payment must be received no later than 30 April. Don’t forget that membership prices have increased as agreed at the AGM.

Come to our next HWLTC Forum As well as listening and commenting, we encourage members of all ages to bring ideas, no matter how small or large at our informal gathering. Just turn up and join in the conversation!

Open Day After the success of last year, acquiring many new members and showing what a great community we are, we are pleased to inform you that we’ll be holding another Open Day this year! Twitter | Facebook | YouTube: HWLTConline

Coaching update from R&D Coaching For adults: Cardio Tennis continues on Monday nights (check out a video of one of our sessions on YouTube!), along with Intermediate coaching on Sundays (after the Easter break). We also have an Improvers Group on Tuesday evenings starting after Easter. For juniors: We had great numbers at our Easter camp at the beginning of April – the best Easter camp for a while! Our Saturday programme is continuing to grow with over 55 kids coming to the groups. New to our coaching repertoire, we have now joined two squads together (the junior and senior academies) to make the Harrow Weald Tennis Performance Squad, and we will also be starting up a new Mini Orange Squad.

Coaching tip of the month When playing doubles, always communicate with your partner on where you’re trying to serve so they can intercept or cover their trams.

Let the tennis season begin! After kicking off the season with our Easter Sunday American Tournament, we look to our six teams who begin their campaigns to either stay in their divisions or get promoted in the Middlesex League. The first home match of the season takes place on 27 April as our Ladies’ Second team takes on Acorn. Make a note of all our summer fixtures (on our website calendar/Current Fixtures page) and come support our teams when you can!

Wanted: Hitting Partners If you’re looking for a hitting partner or you’re willing to help a newer member by joining them as a hitting partner, then please let Ant know via a.osborne50@ntlworld.com.

Cardio Tennis With summer approaching, and the daylight being gloriously longer, why not venture down to HWLTC on a Monday night for a good old tennis workout? A calorie-burner guaranteed! Twitter | Facebook | YouTube: HWLTConline

Memories of our Dinner Dance On 4 February we celebrated a year in the Club at our annual Dinner Dance with some expert harmonica playing from Gary, a heartfelt speech by our Vice President, June, top-notch food from Northwood Golf Club and awesome tunes from DJ Shraii. You can now relive the event from photos by Gary on our Club socials page, and we can also confirm that next year’s DD will be held at the same venue on Saturday 3 February.

What’s on the social calendar? We kick off the social calendar with our competitive Quiz Night on 22 April and continue with our Play & Stay nights on the first Saturday of every month, at which the courts are getting busier and the food is getting yummier. Look out for news of at least a couple of family BBQs and Top Golf this summer, as well as an oriental evening, wine and cheese night (adults only!), and our annual Christmas shindig – all coming up later this year.

Fancy running a social? If you fancy running a social event (at the Club or outside our grounds) or you’d simply like to suggest one, let Tasha, HWLTC’s Social Secretary, know via email at tasha.allery@hotmail.co.uk.

Play & Stay – Summer BBQ Special Open to all members in August. Whether you’re a junior, 5-day, intermediate, full, parent or social member, you can join us for tennis from 5pm and a tasty BBQ too! Twitter | Facebook | YouTube: HWLTConline
