Welcome to Lomond Park Tennis Club
A very warm welcome to you all.
We have a full schedule arranged for the year with plenty of social events and hopefully 2014 will be another enjoyable and exciting year. We have welcomed a quite a few new members this year - I do hope that you will manage along to some of our social events and enjoy your tennis at Lomond Park.
On Saturday7th June we hosted a Ladies invitational Doubles and raised £544 for Breast Cancer Care.
On Sunday 15th June we held the Sandy Macrae Cup, a mixed tournament that raises money for charity. We raised £310 and have donated it to 'Rally for Bally', in memory of Elena Baltacha.
Men's night continues on Monday nights and Ladies nights on Tuesdays from 6.30 pm. All welcome. The season has finished and summer leagues are now taking place.
More information can be found in the Adult and Junior sections of the website.
We have been lucky enough to secure Stuart Brown as our new coach. Stuart is a fully licensed UKCC Level 3 Tennis Coach and he will be running a variety of programmes for the club. He is also available for private group and individual lessons.
Stuart works part time as Tennis Development Officer and Positive Coaching Scotland Lead Officer for East Lothian Council and also does some coaching at Craiglockhart. Unfortunately he is unable to play for our Men’s 1st team as he is currently Men’s 1st Team Captain at Barnton Park LTC.
Stuart recently ran our 10 and Under Big Tennis event which was well attended and a great day had by all.
The ballot has been drawn and all tickets allocated.
We have a full programme of different events throughout the year which started with The Brass Monkeys Tournament on Sunday 16th March.
Please download the calendar and add the events to your diary/calendar at home. This year we have started 'Social Sunday' for all members. Initially this will run from 16.30-18.30 every Sunday
This year you will receive an email at the end of every month with news and reminders of forthcoming events in the following month.
Please also check the website and noticeboards as these will be updated regularly.
If you are able to help with any of the events please contact any of the committee members. Your help will be gratefully received whether it be baking, barbecuing or helping out with the ‘First Friday’ social evenings.
You will be receiving an email shortly from the Secretary about the payment of the annual subscriptions. If you pay before the end of March you will not have to pay the late fee (£30 for adults, £10 for juniors).
We have simplified the subscription categories this year and have waived the joining fee.
There are 2 methods of paying – bank transfer (BACs) and PayPal.
We are encouraging everyone to pay by bank transfer (BACs), either online or pop in to your branch. Please remember to quote as a reference for your payment, your family surname, number of members and your postcode (eg Smithx4EH53LX). This reference allows us to match up your application with payment.
This is the preferred method of payment and 2014 will be the last year LPLTC will accept PayPal payments, therefore avoiding their unnecessary fees.
I hope we all have an enjoyable year of tennis and if you have any queries, please feel free to get in touch.
