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.
