Dear Members / Players / Socialites

The season has now finished, and, despite the weather, we have enjoyed a very successful Summer. I intend to summarise in full detail in my Annual Report, so this note is fairly short.

The League teams finished 5th, 3rd, 3rd and 1st respectively, which could have been better as we just finished the wrong side of further promotions. However, all those sides performed with great credit, winning the majority of their games – as indeed did our new Fifth and Sixth teams. Well done to the Captains and players for all your efforts.

Once again, the Youth sides performed with distinction, winning two trophies and being a credit to the Club. We recently held two Prize Award evenings which were a great success. It is so rewarding that so many of our youths are performing in the adult sides with very positive performances. I would just like to thank all the players, parents, helpers and team managers for your hard work.

This week we have a Players’ Evening on 7th October [tomorrow – 7 p.m. – Pavilion] where we hope to share our thinking for 2022 and also get views on how we can improve this Club. It is imperative that as a Club, we improve every season and over the winter we are looking at coaching, Nets and the strength of our resources.

Another date for your diary is the Annual Dinner on 9th November with guest speaker Angus Fraser. You will see regular notices for the event and please make sure you book your seat and/or tables.

Our AGM is planned for 1st December at the Pavilion. I can confidently forecast a strong performance financially which is built on lots of people doing a great job.

Lastly, please let me have your views on any issue relating to the Club – I am trying to be inclusive to everyone.

The Chairometer has now got a vest on as the weather gets chilly in the evenings with a Halloween mask to follow soon, but remains very upbeat.
