Newsletter – 13 March 2021

Club reopening – Member Open Forums 
As mentioned in a previous newsletter, I’ll be hosting two Open Forums on Zoom in order to answer any queries regarding the reopening of facilities and the Government roadmap. You may have questions about membership fees, access to facilities, etc. 
It’ll be a great opportunity to catch up, so please contact me if you would like to join the gathering and I’ll send you the link. Details for the meetings are as follows: 
Monday 22 March at 7.30pm – Croquet & Tennis members
Tuesday 23 March at 7.30pm – Squash & Racketball members
With the tennis courts and croquet lawn reopening on 29 March, it seems an appropriate time to introduce the two section directors on the Club Board. Section directors represent the views of the playing members.

Katharine Beaudry – Tennis Director
Katharine joined the Club about 20 years ago, and fairly soon afterwards became Secretary for the Tennis Committee, taking over as Chair, and the tennis representative on the Board, in 2018. She is looking forward to the Club reopening and bringing her grandchildren to play again!
Katharine has played for both Ladies’ and Mixed teams in the Kent leagues, and has been captain of Ladies 1 for many years. She is also responsible for organising all tennis team fixtures for the Club.
She is seeking more volunteers to step forward to join the Tennis Committee, in order to better represent the views of the membership. Anyone interested, please contact me for more information about the function of the committee.

Jane Sheridan – Croquet Director
Jane joined the croquet section in 2015: it was a sport she’d always wanted to try. She had tuition from our resident international player (Simon Carter) and enjoyed playing socially and in some tournaments. 
In 2018, she was voted in as Chair of the section, and was elected to stand as a director and represent the croquet section at the last AGM in December 2020. She will assist the Board during these uncertain times, whilst seeking to consolidate the opportunity to move croquet to the former bowling green in Mayow Park for next year’s season.
She was pleased that croquet was able to be played, albeit with various restrictions, from June of last year and would welcome any members wanting to try the game.
