Membership 2015/16

If you have yet to do your membership please can I recommend that you complete our online membership form?  It is quick and easy to do and available from the website  . You then print it and send it off to me with your cheque please.

It is important that you complete the DOB section for monitoring purposes . This allows us to monitor age profiles of the club and act accordingly with promotions and sessions so that we continue to get a good balance in our membership. It also allows me to apply for membership to British Tennis for any new members. I promise you that it goes nowhere else !

As Easter holidays start at end March this year and we appreciate some of our members, particularly juniors, may be on holiday we will accept early payment discounts up to and including Friday 10th April 2015.

Look forward to seeing you on court soon

Best wishes

Clubhouse keys found

The clubhouse keys have now been found (behind a chair in the clubhouse). Please ensure after opening up the keys are left in the door or the keysafe.

2015-2016 Membership

Dear member, 

Further to my earlier email, I now attach the application forms for the coming year. You have a little over three weeks to get your form and subs to Sue to get the discount. 

Also attached is the "recommend a friend" form which could entitle you to qualify for even cheaper tennis next year or some valuable "Luv Tennis" vouchers this year.

On the evidence of the last few days, we could be in for some beautiful spring weather and the promise of a great summer for tennis!

See you on the courts soon.

Clubhouse Keys missing

The keys to the clubhouse have gone missing again & it seems that the cupboard was left unlocked overnight.

Please search through your tennis bag etc as it probably went missing yesterday afternoon (Friday). 
If the keys are not there when you leave the club please let me (07721 828884), Andy Carter or another committee member know straightaway.

Membership Subscriptions - act now for best price

Dear member,

This is just to remind you that the subscriptions for the 2015-16 season are due from the 1 April. To qualify for the really significant discount, you will need either to download the application form from the website (from Saturday 7th March), or pick up a form from the clubhouse - and return it to Sue Rozelaar (with your cheque) by the end of March. This year, we have made the website version of the application form really whizzy - with all sorts of formulas and macros whirring away on the background - so that the subs due figure actually calculates itself - hopefully!

Whilst talking about discounts, we are also running a "recommend a friend" initiative where, if you persuade your adult friend or neighbour to join the club you will receive either a voucher from "Luv Tennis" - for coaching/court hire or merchandise - or a further discount off your subs for the 2016-17 season. The discounts (up to a max of 60% or £60) would be:
- for each full adult 20% or £20 "Luv Tennis" voucher
- for each midweek member 10% or £10 "Luv Tennis" voucher

There will be a downloadable form on the website (again from Saturday 7th) which you and the new member will have to sign and return to Sue, but that apart, it should be straightforward.

Just one last thing - if you are not a member of British Tennis and would like to be, we could do the actual joining for you but, if you want us to do that, you will need to put your date of birth on the application form.

Looking forward to getting out and seeing you on the courts again soon.

Junior Coaching Today (Friday 6th Feb)

Unfortunately the Junior Coaching with Nick will have to be cancelled this evening, due to ice at the back of the floodlit courts.

Snow & frost on the courts

Please note that if the courts are covered in snow or slush they should not be cleared with brushes or snow shovels as this results in the sand dressing being moved as well, which then has to be redistributed back onto the playing surface. When the snow/slush has melted there may be areas with puddles, which is because the court underneath is still frozen & the water can´t drain through. These puddled areas should not be brushed for the same reason as above. 

If there is frost on the courts this can usually be removed or its effect lessened by dragging the court with the red dragmats, unless the court is frozen hard.

(If you have any queries, please contact Gordon on 01494 716079)

Dear member,

As you know we have just had our AGM and there are a few matters which came from it of which you should be aware.

Junior Organiser - Paul and Vicki Widdowson are standing down from the Junior Organiser role after undertaking the work brilliantly for the last five years. Although we are very grateful that several of the parents (who aren´t members) have agreed to continue to help out with the junior teams and the coaching, no member has come forward to take over the coordination role. If we are to maintain this legacy and to continue to offer the wonderful introduction to tennis at Hazlemere, we do need to fill the vacancy. So, if you think you may be in a position to help, but need a bit more info before finally deciding, please let us know. We´ll give you every support.

Subscriptions for 2015 - We have managed to keep the subscriptions the same as last year but there is one significant difference and that is that the discount will only apply to "early" payment - ie before the end of March 2015 - rather than prompt payment. So get your cheques to David as soon as you like in the Spring - we won´t cash it until the beginning of April - promise!

HSA - As you know, your membership to the tennis club includes membership of the Hazlemere Sports Association (HSA). Circumstances have meant that the HSA is (hopefully, temporarily) having to operate from the Hazlemere Community Centre (HCC) in Rose Avenue instead of the Ken Williams Memorial Pavilion. Your tennis club membership can now include free membership of HCC until Sept 2015 for any member who would like it - so if you´d like to avail yourself of this, please enter your name on the list in the clubhouse or email Andy Carter (bosslanecarter@yahoo.co.uk) to confirm.   

Lost Property - There is an enormous amount of (really nice) lost property (which appears to be growing daily) in the gents´ changing room - including some racquets. We really need to clear it out so if you think some of it may be yours, come up and claim it in the next few weeks please - anything left by the end of the school Christmas Hols will be thrown away, taken to a charity shop or used to supplement my car maintenance rag-bag!

Clubhouse Tidiness:
Storage of tennis balls - We have now introduced ball racks for social tennis balls. Please take the balls from there and return them to the rack after your game. Any balls which are no longer usable can be placed in the box provided - help yourself to any balls from this box for home use or as a dog toy.
Sand in the clubhouse - to minimise wear and tear on our hoover - please do all you can to clear the clay from your shoes after leaving the courts and before entering the clubhouse.
Store Room - If you have cause to get anything from the store room - ball machine, score posts, refreshment boxes etc - please make sure you put back tidily. 
New Silver Rubbish bin / Black Recycling bin - Please use the black recycling bin for all your drinks containers/plastic bottles and ball tubes. Please take as much of your litter away with you but use the new silver rubbish bin for anything you can´t transport.

Wimbledon Draw - You should have recently had an email from British Tennis about the Wimbledon Draw in the future but, in case you have inadvertently deleted it, please note that, from next year, you have to be a member of British Tennis, affiliated to Hazlemere Tennis Club and have proactively "opted-in" to the ballot in order to be considered for tickets. This affects not just your eligibility but also the club allocation. It´s quite straightforward but it does mean you have to go on line to the British Tennis website before the end of next year. If you haven´t had an email yet, it might be worth checking the LTA have your correct email address.

Many thanks for sticking with it and wading through all that - apologies for the length and rambling nature of the text!

See you on the courts soon!

Autumn & Winter Court Maintenance

Inevitably leaves are falling thick & fast on the courts, so this is just a short reminder of how to best deal with them through the Autumn & Winter. When dragging the courts, if they have leaves on it is best to use the green plastic drag mats (there are 2), then deposit the leaves in the buckets. There are 8 drag mats, they should be left at the rear of the courts, 1 between each court, flat on the ground to avoid damage.

Junior Organisers standing down

Hi all, you may know that Vicki and I plan to stand down as Junior Organisers at the end of this year. It has been a pleasure to carry out the role, to see all of the juniors developing over the years, but now our children are playing in the later Saturday sessions and we won’t need to be at the courts for 9.00am, and, after five years, it’s time to give someone else the opportunity to take over.
If you would like to take on the role please can you email our club Chairman, Stephen Hollings (stephenhollings@yahoo.com) – he’d be delighted to hear from you.
Alternatively, there are a number of smaller roles to assist the Junior Organiser that you might like to do:
1. Set up the courts for the juniors on Saturday mornings, take the register and keep track of membership (issuing membership forms and liaising with the club Membership Secretary)
2. Help with tennis supervision for the under 8’s on a Saturday (9.00 to 10.00am during term times)
3. Help with organizing junior captains selection and teams (matches take place between April and June and, once you’ve arranged captains, they will then handle organizing the junior matches – there is a great junior league structure in Bucks that supports clubs very well)
4. Organise/hold junior committee meetings (about 5 a year) with Guy, Nick and other committee members.
No coaching experience is required for any of the above, but some tennis experience would be beneficial. We will, of course, be glad to help you as you take on the role, and advice is always available from our coach Guy Britton.
During September and October it will be beneficial to shadow us so that you will be familiar with everything for next year.
Please contact us if you’d like more details. We look forward to hearing from you.

Last week´s Golf Day

Dear all who attended the golf day last week,

Hope you all had a good time at Whiteleaf and were impressed by my organisational skills, particularly with regard to the weather which was fine/dry from half an hour before we started till half an hour after we´d finished!

Well done to all and congratulations to the winners:

Texas Scramble - Scores ranged from 34 to 39 - so very close. Lowest score was shared by three teams - Liz Keens, Jenny McFee, Chris Walker and Andrew Radford; Ady Bowen, Karen Bowen and Ben Credland; Graham Gifkins, Streve Ashford and Anita Reed. I hadn´t really catered for this eventuality so the prize turned out to be a bit meagre -- all won a personalised golf ball!
Individual Stableford - Ladies winner (ocb) Anthea (18); 2nd Liz (18); 3rd Karen (ocb) (17) and 4th Mags (17). Jenny got the same score as Karen and Mags but unfortunately lost on count-back.
Mens winner Graham Gifkins (21); 2nd Dave Powell (ocb) (20) and 3rd Paul Carter (20).
Nearest the pin: Men Chris Walker; Ladies no winner. This enabled me to give a "competitor of the day" award to Iris (she´ll tell you why!)

See you next year?

By the way, gents, did you go off with the wrong pair of golf shoes - we´ve got a very nice pair of footjoys which aren´t ours and we´ve not got a pair of not quite so nice (but a bit bigger) footjoys! Please check and let me know if you´ve got the wrong ones.

Many thanks

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.

Great British Tennis Weekend Open Day

On Saturday 28th June Hazlemere Tennis Club is taking part in the Great British Tennis Weekend by hosting an open day. We have a number of planned events during the day (see below) that will serve to showcase what a great and vibrant club we have and to encourage new members to join. The morning Junior session will be run as normal by the team however, during the afternoon two courts will be specifically put aside for visitors for free play and planned structured sessions.

On the day we do need to make people as welcome as possible while also encouraging them to register their contact details and ultimately completing a membership form.  Your support is much appreciated and a warm welcome to all visitors will make a big difference.

A personal invitation is always a great way of getting new people to join and to help please find attached a printable flyer. Why not invite a friend or a neighbour? 

Programme of events:
09:00 - 10:00 - Ages 5 to 8
10:00 - 11:00 - Ages 9 and under
11:00 - 12:00 - Ages 10 and over

Don Day

Dear member,

As many of you will already know, one of our keenest social tennis players, Don Day, sadly passed away recently after losing his battle with prostate cancer. I know his cheerful presence on court will be greatly missed.

If you would like to pay your last respects, Don's funeral will take place at 2pm on Friday 4th April at Hughenden Church and afterwards at the Church Hall. To help with the planning, could you please contact Don's widow (Mary) on 01494 563417 if you are intending to attend the wake at the hall. 

Family flowers only please.

I have sent a card expressing our condolences to Mary, on behalf of the club.

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!

Clubhouse Key Damage


Can all members take extra care to remove the key from the door when unlocking the Clubhouse? During the past week two keys have been damaged by the door swinging in the wind and banging against the balustrade. Gordon is arranging for a doorstop to be installed to prevent further occurances.

Many thanks
