Club Magazine 2013 - Milford Tennis and Squash Club

CHAIRMAN’S LETTERWelcome to our second Milford Tennis and Squash Club Magazine. The Clubhas had another very successful year, with membership held at around 620.The magazine gives details of all the different activities at the Club, with contactdetails if further information is required on any specific activity. With the interiorof the Club completed so successfully, in the last year we have concentratedon improving the grounds with the extended Club patio, new patio furniture andnew pathway to Courts 4 to 7 making a huge difference to the appearance ofthe Club. A lovely new patio area was also built next to the coaching court, sothat parents can watch their children in comfort. The area behind the Club wascleared, paved and the concrete shed modified to make a shop/store room forour Coach. We also installed acoustic panels on the Foster Taylor room ceilingwhich was much appreciated by the bridge and mah-jong players.As the Club has been here since 1927, it is surprising that lots of people inMilford don’t know we exist. Another step was taken to overcome this when,for the first time in the history of the Club, we took part in the Milford Carnival.Despite the appalling weather it was a great success. We didn’t win a prize,but a picture of the float and a mention appeared in the local paper. We plan toparticipate again this year and hope for better weather.Having finally received planning permission for lighting on tennis courts 4 and 7,the most exciting project in the coming year will be the installation of the lightingon those courts, the work being carried out at the same time as the re-carpetingof the 2 courts, in September 2013.Court 7 is the junior coaching court and the new lighting will significantly extendthe time available for coaching the juniors. We have over 100 junior memberswho, of course, represent the future of our Club. We have extensive mini andjunior coaching programmes and many activities including regular junior/seniortournaments where juniors have a chance to play with adults in a fun competition.If you are new to Milford, or haven’t seen the Club, why not have a look at ourlovely facilities in Lucerne Road and have a chat with some members, alwaysthe best ambassadors for a thriving Club like ours.As always, my thanks go to the members of the Club who have produced thismagazine, and to the Club’s Committee members who give so generously oftheir time and talents to make the Club such a success. I would also like tothank the sponsors and advertisers whose funding has helped to make themagazine possible.John RichardsChairman6
