Tennis Club Etiquette

Dear members,

With many new members joining the club over recent months, the committee felt it would be appropriate to outline a few points of etiquette which should help maximise our enjoyment of the facility and the game of tennis. The list is not exhaustive .....
  • Don´t enter the courts whilst a rally is in progress on either of the adjacent courts, and ideally wait until the end of a game before entering. When convenient, enter swiftly, closing the gate behind you. Please take particular care during representative or tournament matches.
  • Don´t stray onto an adjacent court in search of, or to retrieve, balls until there is a break in play on that court. If a ball from your court ends up (unnoticed) on a neighbouring court in a dangerous position, call out a verbal warning to the other players.
  • When watching the game, do not converse loudly during play. Appreciate good play (even if it´s by a player from another club). Also, try not to walk behind courts whilst play is in progress
  • Be a good representative of tennis - show consideration and respect to other members and opponents at all times.
  • During social play be prepared to mix in with all members and visitors.
  • Unless others are using the court immediately after you, remember to drag the courts, clean the lines (if necessary) and lower the nets at the end of your session.
  • Ensure you tidy up after yourself in the clubhouse - don´t expect others to wash up your drink mugs etc.
  • Be gracious in victory and noble in defeat. People have long memories and if you get a reputation as a poor sport or a bad loser, it will remain with you long after you mend your ways.
  • Tennis is a wonderful game and should be enjoyed by everyone, whatever their standard of play. Enjoy it, play it as long as you can and make sure you do not spoil it for others. 
Many thanks 

Andy Carter
Hon Sec.

LTA Tennis Leaders Course @ Halton - 23rd March

LTA Tennis Leaders is aimed at 13 years plus and the content is suitable for older juniors just starting out on the tennis career pathway through to adult volunteers looking to support their local coach, referee or club official.  The purpose of the course is to provide some basic training around communication and organization within tennis.  
This basic training enables people of all ages and skill sets to support the coach and committee with the day to day running of the tennis venue and tennis programme.  Young leaders often see the course as the first step on the career ladder, gaining valuable skills that can be transferred into other industries.  Adults who enjoy volunteering see it as a way of getting some informal training around organising competition or taking a role on the committee.
To find out more and to apply, please see the attached.

Court upkeep

Now that we have been using the new courts for a few months the following is a reminder of how we should best look after them;

After use the courts need to be dragged, to remove scuffed up sand & to help redistribute the loose sand over the surface. This should help to reduce long term maintenance as well. The lines need to be swept if they look faint.

Where the surface has a lot of leaves on it the green drag mat should be used as this collects the leaves & debris quite efficiently. This debris should then be deposited, ideally in one of the 4 buckets, or at least at the perimeter kerb.

There are 6 drag mats so these should be left against the kerb, between the courts, not right at the end of courts 1 & 5, & preferably 3 each side of the net. This makes it easier for the next users.

The red drag mats have unfortunately started to disintegrate & we are endeavouring to get the contractor to replace these with a different type.

We are also looking at the possibility of getting some foot brushes to put at the court exits, but most of the sand will come off if you stamp your shoes on the carpet as you exit. This maintenance should be easier in the spring & summer, when the surface is drier!

Thank you for your co-operation & enjoy your tennis!

Club Vacancies

Dear Member,

Your Club is again looking for new blood on the Club Committee. Have you a burning desire to promote tennis to the masses, have you got strong opinions that you feel aren't being addressed, do you want to play a role in the smooth running of a well managed club or maybe all of the above, then why not get yourself elected to the Committee and make a difference?

At the AGM we will be asking the membership to vote in the Committee for the following 12 month and  this year we have two vacancies that we are specifically looking to fill:

1.            Membership Secretary
2.            Committee Member

HLTC relies on all of its members to contribute in many ways and we can all take great pride in the professionalism of the administration, we've got a great team. Is this an opportunity for you to help?

I know that this is short notice but can you please ensure that if you wish to serve as an Officers or Committee Members that your nomination is sent through to me and Andy Carter by the Sunday prior to the AGM on Thursday 28th November. 

Many thanks

Use of drag mats

Several of the new drag mats have been damaged, in the process of being put on the hooks or while not being handled properly. For the time being the hooks on the fence for the drag mats have been taken down and the mats should be left flat on the court, by the fence and preferably between courts. 

When the courts are damp or wet the red drag mats give the best result if used smooth side down. If there are leaves on the surface the green drag mat should be used to collect them, then leave them in the buckets (at each corner).

Wednesday play

The arrangement to play at Great Missenden on a Weds morning has been extended for another week as the new courts are not ready.

Added: 1st October 2013.   Author: webmaster@hazlemeretennis.net


Progress on new courts

We promised to let you know how the new courts are progressing. The work started as scheduled on Monday 16 Sep and during the first week this involved pressure washing, removal of the existing kerbs and filling of the cracks in the playing surface. 

When inspected by the LTA Consultant who we have appointed to project manage the work, the crack filling was found to be inadequate and this has had to be rectified. This has unfortunately delayed the laying of the new surface, which is now proceeding, and the contractor has undertaken to work during this coming weekend and planning to complete during next week. 

Apologies for this delay, but it is important for the longevity of the courts that the preparatory work is carried out correctly and in accordance with the specification. We will let you know further next week, hopefully that the courts are ready for the weekend of 5/6 Oct. We will also endeavour to extend the existing arrangement for alternative playing venues for  Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Alternative playing provisions during resurfacing

As you will all be aware work on the new court surface starts this Monday and we will not be able to use the new ones until Saturday 28th at the earliest - if the weather is fine!

We have been able to secure alternative playing arrangements for some of the time while the courts are out of use.

Men’s and Ladies Practice nights - Tuesday 17th, Wednesday 18th, Tuesday 24th and Wednesday 25th  - We have a reserved court at the Indoor Tennis Centre from 7.00 to 9.00pm.  Please can I ask that should you want to play to let Andy Pearce or Vicki Widdowson know in advance.

The midweek sessions played during the days will be transferred either to Great Missenden or High Wycombe - we will be contacting the organisers of each session directly once final arrangements have been agreed with the respective clubs.

Once again we are heavily indebted to the committee for all their hard work to making the whole process as smooth as possible.

Kind regards

Court Surface Replacement

I am delighted to be able to announce the date for work to start replacing the court surface at the club.

We have been negotiating with the contractors to ensure we lose as little playing time as possible. 

Work will start on Monday 16th September and should last for two weeks finishing on Friday 27th September.  

The finish date is dependent on the weather and not guaranteed.   We will keep you all fully informed as to how well the project is progressing.

We are working to find alternative courts while the work is being undertaken and will keep you informed soon.

I would also like to take this opportunity to clarify how we came to the decision to replace the courts with the synthetic clay rather than any other option.

During the decision making process, we held a briefing session at the HSA to learn more about the options, listened to the members, arranged playing sessions on the various court surfaces, wrote a business plan, took advice from the LTA and looked at the surfaces other local clubs are using etc.  

The final decision was taken by the committee having undertaken the robust process of fact finding.    All aspects of the fact finding pointed to synthetic clay as the best option. The members who expressed an opinion overwhelmingly supported this choice with over 75% expressing this preference.
However the final decision was made on the basis of a whole host of other factors including the members preference.  

I will continue to keep you informed about how the work is progress and look forward to playing on the new courts from 28th September. 

Kind regards

The set of keys which went missing from the key-safe a couple of weeks ago have not materialised and thus the security of the clubhouse is compromised.

Replacement of Court Surfaces

Following my previous notes about our plans to replace the court surface, I would like to update you on our final decision taken at the committee meeting on Wednesday this week.

Nearly a quarter of the club has taken up the offer to try out the synthetic clay and synthetic grass surfaces at Wooburn and High Wycombe.  We were delighted with the response to the opportunity to play on the surfaces and we have listened to the feedback given by those who played.

The response has been overwhelming in favour of the synthetic clay with members liking the bounce, ability to play when frosty and the general performance of the surface.   The Committee unanimously supported the use of synthetic clay option and this is our agreed solution.

We have also agreed to use Lano Grand Clay, a new and superior version of synthetic clay that will bring greater longevity to the surface.  While being slightly more expensive it will last significantly longer.

So our next steps are to draw up a competitive tender with the support of a surveyor from the LTA to ensure we get the best value for money for the club.

The timescales are yet to be finalised but the replacement process should take no more than three weeks.  The best time to undertake the change is from the start of September.  The best case scenario is that the courts will not be available for just two weekends.

We will be identifying alternative sites where tennis can be played while the courts are out of use.

It is likely we will run an American Tournament to launch the courts at the end of September.

I would like to thank the committee and sub-committee for their hard work pulling together the business case and arranging the open evening and try-out sessions.  There is still more to do and their continued support is very welcome.

If you have any questions do not hesitates to talk to any member of the committee.

Yours

Stephen Hollings
Chairman

Court Resurfacing - Your Thoughts - 11th April 8pm

Dear Members,

As previously promised I want to keep you all informed of the on-going discussions the committee has been having about the future options for the surface of our courts.

You will know a sub-committee was established to identify options and work through the financial modelling for the future of the club.

At the last committee meeting we were presented with a compelling case to resurface the courts sooner rather than later – probably this year.

All members of the committee present were asked to vote on the plan to re-surface and it was unanimously agreed that this was the best solution.   

The next phase of the process is to agree which surface should be used on the courts and we would very much like to engage with all members of the club to help shape our thinking.

To help educate everyone as to the options and their various merits we plan to hold a meeting at the Ken Williams Pavilion on Thursday 11th April at 8.00pm

We will have a potential contractor at the meeting who should be able to give an insight into the alternative surfaces and their characteristics.

It is important to state that no decisions will be made at the meeting but we want to hear your thoughts and feedback both on the night and over the next few weeks – the process starts on 11th April.

I would like to encourage as many of you as possible to join the meeting, we all look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas.

Kind regards,

Stephen Hollings
Chairman

Fancy playing some Cricket too?

Message from Hazlemere Cricket Club:


Last year, we formed Hazlemere Cricket Club, practiced  on 6 or so occasions at Hazlemere Rec and played one game against Penn Street, which, having bowled them out for 115 or so, we failed to match, despite Millers 27, and Sean's father-in-law at the crease for almost the entire innings. Lee 'Secretary' Massey contributed a single, but a good time was had by all as everyone had a chance to bat and bowl.

So to this season:

1. We need to know if you are interested - give us a yes or no. We would like to know by the end of this month (March), so please reply to russellgthomas@btinternet.com asap.
2. If it's yes, would you prefer to play on Saturday [most likely] or Sunday afternoons?
3. And what are your strengths - batting , bowling, wicket-keeper, all-rounder etc?

We are likely to start practicing in late April / early May [we are trying to get some nets arranged], and will have practice matches in May / June, depending on numbers. Mr Massey has 2 fixtures arranged so far, but I'm sure he will be working on others. If you have contacts at other clubs, please let us know.

There will be a cost this year, in the region of £10 to register if you are an HSA member already, £20 if not. There will be a small practice fee to cover ground / net costs.

If you'd like to get involved in the organisation of the club, please let us know.

Regards,
Russell - Chairman
Lee - Secretary
Smithy - Treasurer

Subscriptions for 2013-14

Dear member,

Let me apologise on two counts - firstly the lack of Spring Newsletter and secondly this rude announcement that your tennis club subs will fall due at the end of March.

On the first count, I'm afraid (having recently retired) that I haven't had a chance to put together a Newsletter - I shall aspire to get one out in the next few weeks.

On the second count, I hope you have enjoyed your membership of the club over the last year and will be anxious to renew for the coming season. 
If so, please complete the attached form (or download it from the website) and return it with your cheque to Penny Walker (by the end of April if you want to take advantage of our early payment discount). 
If not, please fill out the application form and return it with your cheque to Penny Walker along with the member feedback form, highlighting any ways we could improve things for you next year!

Please make sure the email address, in particular, is legible and, if you're not a member of British Tennis and would like us to join you, make sure you tick the box clearly on the application form.

One thing perhaps I should bring to your attention now - we are looking to resurface the courts within the next year or so and are examining alternative surfaces - any thoughts of views on this would be gratefully received by the committee.

I will put a small stock of the application forms in the Clubhouse for the use of members without email.

Thank you all and have a great tennis year with Hazlemere Tennis Club in 2013-14.

AGM - Update

Following the AGM held last November, I would like to update everyone on the progress we have made investigating the options for the court surface treatment/replacement.
At the AGM we discussed some ideas and thoughts but did not have all the facts at hand to be able to make concrete recommendations.   
The timing and choice of replacement surface is very important for the future development of the club with major financial and playing implications.  We will need to prepare a detailed business plan before making our recommendations and decisions.
We agreed to investigate further in the New Year keeping the membership fully informed of any findings, recommendations and possible outcomes.
The first meeting of the new committee was held on Tuesday January 8th.  At the meeting we agreed to set up a working party to focus on the resurfacing options.  The following committee members have volunteered to join the working party
Gordon Reed
David Passmore
Eric McFee
Andy Pearce

Working party will update the committee at the next meeting planned for Tuesday 27th February.  When there is more information to update the members I will ensure you are all kept informed.

Court bookings and visitors

Just a couple of reminders now that the summer seems to have arrived!

Demand for the courts is likely to get very high over the next few weeks as club matches get into full swing; the club tournament deadlines loom and members simply try and take advantage of the lovely weather. Please remember to look at the court booking sheet (pinned up in the Clubhouse) and see what's available for particular times so as to avoid turning up and finding no court availability.

Please also remember our rules about visitors, they must be signed in to the visitors' book and pay the appropriate fee. Any one visitor is limited to six visits only.

Many thanks - enjoy the lovely weather.

Dave´s 12 hour tennis-athon for Cambodia

Here's a message from David Burt, who is planning a charity trip!

"Hi everyone! This July I will be travelling with the charity Tearfund to the town of Poipet in Cambodia to work with a number of projects run by the Cambodian Hope Organisation, who seek to strengthen the quality of life for disadvantaged rural people and children at risk of trafficking, as well as many other things.

Obviously this trip will cost a fair bit so I will be playing a gruelling 12 hours of tennis on Sunday 3rd June to raise money for it.

If you would like to sponsor me if you are free to play on the day (both would be much appreciated), I have put forms up on the notice board in the clubhouse.

Many thanks, David Burt"

Frances Charlton

I am so very sad to report that our dear friend Frances Charlton, has passed away. Apparently she had not been well for some time (not something she would let anyone know of course).  She called the paramedics herself and was taken to hospital where she had a heart attack from which she did not recover.   

Our thoughts are with Murray and Kerry (in the USA ) and all her family at this very sad time. Should anyone wish to write to Murray (who lives in Somerset ) and Kerry (who normally lives and works in the USA ), they will be at Frances 's home address until 6th May, which is:
27 Amanda Court , Langley , Slough , Berks. SL3 7TD.

I am able to advise you that Frances Charlton's funeral will be held on:
THURSDAY 3rd MAY at 2pm at Slough Crematorium, Stoke Road, Slough , SL2 5AX

All are invited for refreshments after the service at The Pinewood Hotel, Slough Road , George Green , SL3 6AP

Although flowers are welcome, Frances was particularly interested in junior tennis players, and donations are suggested for either "Tennis First" an independent charity which helps young tennis players throughout the UK who are dedicated to fulfilling their potential to reach a senior world ranking of 250 and better.    It makes grants for coaching, travel expenses and training.   The other charity suggested by the family is the British Heart Foundation. Should you wish to make a donation or send flowers please contact the Undertakers:
Newman & Son, 180 Stoke Road, Slough , SL2 5AS - Tel. No.   01753 524286

Yours sincerely,
Mary Crowshaw (Hon. Secretary, Bucks LTA)

Mary Burden

I have to report the sad news that Mary Burden has passed away at the age of 74. Those who have been members of the tennis club for a long time cannot fail to remember Mary, as she was one of the pillars of the club for many years,, being club secretary for goodness knows how long. She embodied the values to which we're still aspiring; friendly, welcoming generous of spirit and no mean player either.

As I mentioned, she was my predecessor as club secretary for many years, keeping immaculate records, in the days before laptops, powerpoint, emails or even word processors - it was a far tougher job then to keep everyone informed of what was going on at the club and maintaining the committee minutes - a real role model.

Our thoughts are with her husband Ric and her family at this sad time.

If anyone is able to and would like to pay their last respects, her funeral is at the Evesham Methodist Chusrch at 2pm on Thursday 3rd May.

Regards,
Andy Carter

The Boodles Tennis at Stoke Park

The Boodles Tennis will this year return to Stoke Park for the 11th year running.   The unique mix of an intimate English garden party and a select field of the world’s top tennis elite creates a viewing and entertainment experience that the big tournaments just can’t match.

In 2011, The Boodles hosted an incredible field of athletes including world No 1 Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Juan Martin Del Potro and David Ferrer.  The line up for 2012 is shaping up to be just as impressive with a number of the top twenty confirmed  and ready to hit the grass courts.

Guests at The Boodles will view world class players, while experiencing sumptuous luxury and 5* catering without the crowds and queues of the big tournaments.  Within The Boodles arena, no seat is further than eight metres from the court and lunch can be found by taking a leisurely stroll through Stoke Park ’s immaculate private gardens.

Tickets at this family friendly event start from £38. And with guests returning year after year The Boodles might still be the best kept secret on the international tennis circuit.  After 11 years the word is getting out so please book up today to avoid disappointment!

As a member of Bucks LTA, we are pleased to offer you the opportunity to purchase "4 stadium tickets for the price of only 3 "  on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Please call The Boodles booking line on 020 7384 4877 and quote  " Bucks LTA "  or visit www.theboodles.com for more details.

We have given people the option this year of making up a team of 4 people themselves as often people like to bring friends or family and want to play with them or, if you prefer to mix and match then  you can put your name down on one of the groups of 4 and this will also build up random teams of 4 so please dont worry if you dont have a team of 4 we can make that happen for you!  We only ask that we have a nominated Captain for each 4 so that they can  collect the £15.00 per head and get it back to Sue or Anita , along with handicaps, by August 4th as we have to pay for the meal.  You can pay for the golf on the day. 
We have lots of fun prizes for everyone and welcome golfers of all standards to come along and have fun!  The poster with all details is now up in the clubhouse.

Here is a message from a member of the club, David Crawley, who is taking part in the 3 Peaks Challenge:

"As some of you will be aware, in a few weeks time (1st weekend in July) I am part of a team attempting the 3 Peaks Challenge. The challenge requires us to climb Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scarfell Pike in England and Snowdon in Wales all within 24 hours (including the driving between them!)
We have been putting in a fair bit of training and have high hopes of succeeding in our cause. Aswell as doing it for our personal achievement we are also hoping to raise as much money as possible for Whizz Kids charity which helps provide wheelchairs for disabled children.
Anyone that would like to sponsor me can do so by clicking on the link below.

Refurbishment Work

If you have been up to the club recently, you cannot have failed to notice all the hard work being done on the club house to repair and upgrade the facilities.  We are expecting all the work to be completed by the end of the first week in April, ready for the new tennis season.  While the work is being done, we ask for your patience over a couple of matters.  
Firstly, there will be limited tea and coffee making facilities until the work is complete.   
The second issue is the refurbishment of the toilets; they have currently been removed and will not be ready for three weeks.  During this time we have provided a "Portaloo" for members to use.  For those of you who would prefer a more genteel facility, you should be able to use the toilets in the main building (Ken Williams Memorial Pavilion).  Access to the pavilion should be simple as it is open each morning during the week and several afternoons.  A key fob is required to gain access to the pavilion and there are several of these distributed throughout the membership.  
We apologise for any inconvenience and ask for your patience for a few more weeks – we are sure the end result will be beneficial to all members.

Movember 2010 - in aid of Prostate Cancer Charity

A message from Andy Carter:

I have decided to throw my (not inconsiderable) weight behind this and grow a tash during Movember, in aid of the Prostate Cancer Charity.

It you feel you are able to sponsor me, that would be fantastic - just go to the website and pledge the donation (http://uk.movember.com) - be a bit careful though, there are three other Andrew Carters doing this. Alternatively I will be carrying around the sponsorship forms to tennis and badminton. Last year the Thames Water team raised over £25k for the charity which was fantastic - but the aim, as always is to do better.

It will be interesting to see if the tash turns out as grey as the rest of (what remains of) my hair or if I end up like Alastair Darling!

The beauty of this new sport is the need for players to evolve from regular tennis dominated by "power-hitting," to more cultured and strategic play - hence the name touchtennis. Speed of mind, understanding of the rival’s weakness and exquisite touch count far more than physical strength and power. Outmanoeuvring your opponent is far more effective than trying to out hit them. 
The games addictiveness comes mainly from the way it "levels the field" amongst different players and sexes. The ingenious design of the interaction, between racket-ball-surface-court dimensions, allows for longer rallies and putting the ball away sometimes seems impossible! 
The sport has seen many former tennis players (former Wimbledon winners) and commentators give up playing lawn tennis to play full time on the touchtennis circuit and compete fiercely for ranking points. It is great fun to play and brilliant for beginners and less experienced tennis players. The short history of the sport is proving very successful and the touchtennis circuit with its tournaments (slams and masters) is becoming more and more popular. Full details of the sport including its history and background can be obtained from our website www.touchtennis.com which also includes a list of forthcoming tournaments.

Roughing it for charity

A message from one of your fellow members:

"You may remember that last year, I asked friends and family for sponsorship in support of a charity venture I was doing. Well, once again I will be braving the elements on Friday 8th October, and "sleeping rough" in central London in aid of Action for Children.
This is an incredibly worthwhile charity that work tirelessly to help homeless youngsters, and I will be joining several work colleagues to make up a "Steria" team as part of "Byte Night" - the I.T industrys drive to make a difference to the lives of underprivileged young people. So I would like to invite you to visit our "virgingiving" site via the following link, and to make a donation - of whatever you can afford...
Last year your generosity contributed towards our eventual total of nearly £4,000, which Steria then added to to give us a fantastic final amount of over £5K for the evening!!  So I am sure that I can count on you once again (and please forward this mail onto anyone else who you feel may wish to also contribute)..... many, many thanks in anticipation. 
Best wishes, Jim"

Tesco and Sainsburys Vouchers

A big thankyou to all those who kindly donated their Tesco and Sainsburys vouchers to the club. The scheme for this year has now closed and I have sent off the vouchers to the relevant companies.  For Tesco we collected 1105 vouchers and for Sainsburys we collected 640.  As it is our first year of collecting, the junior committee decided they would like to bank all the vouchers so next year they can go towards bigger items.
Many thanks once again.

Apply 2010!

It is that time of the year again...this year, in spite of the significant additional benefit of HSA membership, we have not only persuaded the treasurer NOT to raise the fees this year, BUT we will still be offering the discount to prompt-paying (ie. by the end of April) continuing members – fantastic! You may remember last year, to help spread the payments a bit, particularly for the family memberships, we’ve offered a standing order payment system. Not many availed themselves of last year, but it is remaining available should it be a help to you. As a reminder, if the total of the subs is over £200, you can pay in four equal monthly instalments (April – July). Just download the standing order form and send it in with the completed application form.
