1. SUNDAY NIGHTS
The review mentioned in the Spring Newsletter has been completed and we have reluctantly decided that due to insufficient numbers and other resourcing issues that we have had to stop running the Sunday Night Club.
2. CHDTTL AGM
The AGM was held on Wednesday the 20th July the minutes are being produced but for your information; the number of times a player can play up has been reduced from 7 to 6 and that the CHDTTL affiliation fee has been increased from £8.00 to £10.00 for adults and from £4.00 to £5.00 for Juniors
3. K2 JUNIOR COACHING
The 3.00 to 5.00 Thursday junior Coaching program is weak, and runs at a loss, the 5.00 to 7.00 slot is strong, we have been approached by Southgate Primary School asking if we can run an After School Club at their premises, we are considering dropping the 3.00 to 5.00 program at K2 and replacing it with the After School Club at Southgate, if we can run this on a Thursday Amila can run the ASC at Southgate and then go on to K2, will let you know what happens.
4. CLUB FEES
Our costs in running the Thursday Club Night have increased and some of our Nets are showing signs of wear and tear so we are proposing a modest Thursday Night Fee increase, this will be supported by the introduction of Club membership the details are:
Introduce a Club Membership for Adults and juniors of £15.00 per year, this will be introduced on Thursday the 6th October 2016 and will run for 6 months at a cost of £7.50, membership will then be on an annual basis from the 1st April.
Adult fees to be increased from £3.50 to £4.00, Adult club members will pay £3.50, non-club members will pay £4.
Junior fees to be increased from £2.00 to £2.50 in any case; junior club members will pay £2.50, non-club members will pay £3.00.
These fee increases will take effect as from Thursday the 6th October.
5. CHDTTL COMPETITIONS
We will have to get our teams into the League registration committee Mid August, so we need to get our skates on, the Club will be submitting 2 teams into the premier league and this runs centrally at K2 on a Thursday. So we now have to consider our Div 1 and Div 2 teams, as you know these run on a home and away format. This year there is a proposal for an additional league aimed at Juniors and Adult beginners this will run in Horsham at Collyers School on a Friday and will start a little earlier at around 6.30/7.00pm and of course will finish earlier, so if anybody is interested in playing in one of the leagues then please let me know. We had hoped to run a Club Celebration event on Thursday the 28th July but I am afraid we have been overtaken by events, however, we as a Club hope to run internal club singles competitions for juniors and adults later in the year, more info about these later. One point to raise is that all/any teams that we submit must have a captain or organisers to manage it.
