The court development project is now within sight of its fund-raising target.
This will then allow us to progress with the project to convert the five grass courts and install five sets of floodlights.
If you have thought about donating money to the project, but have not yet done so – then now is the time!
We need to be very close to the target by October this year in order to be able to construct the courts in time for the 2018 season.
Donation leaflets are in the club-house - or you can down-load a form here
If you have any questions or would like to discuss any matters concerning the project then please email or phone......
Tennis Court Project - Lead
How will we pay back the loans?
The loans will require an annual payment from the tennis section. We have secured a fantastic sponsorship deal from San Carlo and runs for an initial 5 years. We currently obtain a surplus from coaching and non-members fees, and we expect this to grow with the additional court availability. We obtain a profit from the three existing floodlit courts and we expect this figure to grow, especially given the fact that the new lights will be LED and consume less electricity. In addition we plan to raise a contribution from a ladies lunch / tournament and summer fete teas. There is of course the opportunity to hold ‘one-off’ occasional fund-raising events to secure additional income. The figures planned to be raised are believed to be ‘prudent’ and the income, especially from floodlights and coaching could be significantly higher than in our budgets. In addition there are other small sources of income which will generate a few hundred pounds each a year, and will add to the overall income.
