Tennis for Lympstone

Spring Newsletter 2008

Welcome to a new season of tennis!  At our recent AGM we said goodbye to Barrie Bissett, our Chairman for the past 3 years and to longstanding committee member Joy Eustace.   In their place we welcome Adrian Barton as Chairman, as well as Wendy Smith and Jonathan Bissett as new committee members.

Thank you to the many members who have elected to receive information over the internet – this saves the club both time and money.  The membership renewal form and members’ guide showing this year’s subscription rates are at:

Membership Form

Members Guide

Please complete the form and return as soon as possible to our Treasurer.  Paper copies of the newsletter and renewal form are available from the notice board (see below), and will be distributed as soon as possible to last year’s members believed not to have email.

We now have a larger notice board inside the committee room, so please make a point of checking it when you visit.  Details of home matches will be displayed here and courtside.
