  • Peppard LTC American Tournament - 2nd July 2017

    To get the Peppard LTC Members in to the spirit of Wimbledon, this year's American Tournament will be held on Sunday the 2nd July 2017, the day before the start of Wimbledon.  If you would like to join us, please come to the Club at about 10.00 AM on the day as it is a "roll up" event with no need to complete an entry form in advance.  The tournament will start just after 10.00 AM and a BBQ will be served at about 1.00 PM.  We expect the event to draw to a close just after lunch but that depends on the number of players and the level of competition!  We look forward to seeing you on the day.

  • Dogs at the Club

    There have been a number of recent incidents of dogs being left off the lead around the club and also one incident where a dog was on a court.  A condition of our insurance cover is that dogs must be kept on a lead at all times at the Club to protect individuals and especially young Children.  A dog on a court is a serious breach of Club etiquette notwithstanding the possibility of fouling the courts.
     
    Any Members not complying with either of the above requirements will be asked to leave immediately, will be permanently banned from the Club with immediate effect and no subscriptions will be returned.  Please understand how important the breach of etiqutte matter is and also how serious the insurance requirement is as the Club would have all public liability cover invalidated should an incident occur.
     
    The Committee.

  • Peppard LTC AGM - 2017

    The Peppard LTC AGM was held on the 8th March 2017 at the club.  The minutes have been issued.  Points of note from the AGM are:

    • Club income overall has increased over the year based principally on the effort and subsequent contributions of Teach Me Tennis and the coaching staff.
    • Club expenditure overall increased predominantly due to essential maintenance on tree cutting and the new path but other expenses are in line with previous years.
    • The court resurfacing plan is on track as the Club builds up funds based on a surplus of income against expenditure.
    • Club membership numbers are remaining fairly constant but the mix of membership categories are changing slightly.
    • A slight increase in membership fees for certain categories of membership was agreed to account for inflation over the past few years.
  • Berkshire Winter Leagues - 2016/17

    Congratulations to the Peppard LTC Men's 1st Team that won Division 4 of the Berkshire Adult Winter League 2016/17 Men's Doubles and will be promoted to Division 3 of the league come the 2017/18 winter season.  Team Captain, Andy Lee, commented that "it was great to have so many club players pushing for places in the teams and this strength in depth from our pool of players has contributed to our success". 
     
    In addition, a notable mention should be made of both the Mixed 1 and the Mixed 2 teams that both came runners up in their divisions, Division 4 and Division 11 respectively, of the Berkshire Adult Winter League 2016/17 Mixed Doubles.  This is the first year in a number of years that Peppard LTC has entered a second mixed team in the Winter League so a creditable result for a first outing.
     
    The Men's 2 team did well finishing in 4th place of the Berkshire Adult Winter League 2016/17 Men's Doubles Division 7 West and the Ladies also performed well with the Ladies' 1 Team finishing in 6th place in Division 4 and the Ladies' 2 Team finishing in 6th place in Division 9.  In summary, a good season with one promotion and no demotions.
