Club Open Day
I’m sure that you would all like to join me in thanking the people who contributed so much effort to ensuring the resounding success of our open day on Saturday. We had more than 40 children and 30 adults attending. My experience in previous years has been that people drifted in and out all afternoon. Not so on Saturday. The majority of our visitors stayed for the whole afternoon. And they all appeared to be having a great time. We’d like to apologise to the adults who came along hoping perhaps for a knock with the new coaches but they very quickly assessed the situation that the coaches had to deal with: more than 40 children, all fully engaged in the activities that they were delivering. Thank you, Ulla, John, Glen, Luanda, Pamela, Celia, Natasha and Sean for your graceful acceptance of the situation. And especially you Glen, who was even roped in for a bit of coaching!
A heartfelt thanks must go to the small sub-committee for their amazing contribution to this success. Graham, who delivered on everything he’d promised in the most low-key unassuming way imaginable. Sarah, who was press-ganged into serving the teas and did a great job even after being abandoned by the chairman who found playing King of the Hill with an assorted group of teens and tweenies a much more appealing activity than serving tea. A big thanks to Sue Malduca and everyone else who contributed cakes to the event. At 1pm we thought we might have to eat them all ourselves, but by 4.30 very little remained.
To Anna and Sue we all owe an enormous debt of gratitude. They volunteered to take on the membership secretary function and also take responsibility for coaching liaison. And what a difference they’ve made. I can’t emphasise enough what a valuable asset it is to have two parents of children at the local school fulfilling this important function. They know the parents, they know the children, they see them every day.
And last but not least, thank you to our two new coaches, James and Sam, who told us that they felt that if they’d carried on for another hour the children would still have stayed and enjoyed every minute. I know that I certainly did.
Well done all of you.
Aston Park Tennis Club.
