Winners again! Aegon South East Region Club of the Year 2016

The committee are thrilled to advise that Purley Bury Tennis Club has won the next stage of the Aegon Club of the Year Awards for 2016 – Regional winners!

Our club will now be put forward into the National Finals, with the winning club being presented with a cash contribution to club funds – fingers crossed!

The committee would once again like to thank all of you that make a contribution to help the club deserve the award.

Working party Spring Clean weekend – 6th / 7th May

With the tournament coming up, and our big Fun Day on 25th June, to be followed by the club finals, the time has come again to ask for your help to Spring Clean the Club. I was inspired to see more than twenty volunteers on Monday working at the Bowls Club as they prepared their ‘estate’ for the season opening.

The committee would be very grateful for your help. I know that some of you can’t make Saturdays, and some can’t make Sundays. I will therefore be attending on Saturday, 6th May from 09.30 am to 1pm, and Sunday, 7th May, between 12.00 noon and 4pm, to try to get all the jobs done. We will need gardeners, cleaners, handy men / women, hedge cutters, dump chauffeurs, cementers, and sweepers – all are welcome. Saturday helpers will be rewarded with the usual bacon sandwich and plenty of beverages, and Sunday helpers will get tea, and cakes at 4pm. A list of jobs to do will be circulated once we know the numbers.

Please join us – it isn’t hard work, and there’s a great camaraderie amongst those that contribute. Thank you in advance. If you can help, even for a couple of hours, please let me know by email – mjvaughan1@gmail.com – stating your skill set and which day you will help out on.

PBTC Bar improvements

Ivan is looking to enhance the offer through the bar by making improvements and additions over time. He already has a new dart board, which is going to be put up in the bar, but he needs a hand as it is heavy and needs to be accurately mounted. One of the TVs is to be moved to make way for it. Ivan would like to undertake this work on Monday evening, 24th April, after the early session. Can you lend a hand please? If you can, please contact Ivan on 077 9000 3112 if you can spare some time to help.

If you have any suggestions regarding the bar, including adding different drinks to the range, or events that you would like to see arranged, please let Ivan know by email to: ibates12312@gmail.com
