The Committee and I hope you all had a very relaxing break and are facing 2015 all fresh and ready for a new year. We're also keen to see your enthusiasm spill onto the court - especially Thursday nights for Club Night! We're encouraged by the big uptake of burgers in Kendal's Kitchen and would love to see more people turning up for some court action!
We've got a lot of new members, mostly as a result of our January special, so if you see someone new, please make an effort to make them feel welcome - it's what Herne Bay is known for!
In today's news...
Sophie, Club Manager
Due to the roaring success of this special offer in 2014, we're running it again in 2015!
All new, full, senior members (including Plus Ones) will receive 2 free one-on-one coaching sessions (tennis or squash) and go in the draw to win a $500 voucher thanks to our friends at Nike Britomart.
Already a member? Refer a friend or your Plus One (someone living at the same address as you) and you'll receive a $50 bar voucher and go in the draw to win the Nike Britomart voucher too.
This special is for January only and all coaching sessions must be booked in by the end of February.
For more info, or to refer a friend, contact me in the office on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Club Night is BACK, baby! On every Thursday. Come on in, get your name on the board and get hitting. If you're new, or just not sure how to get started, come upstairs and find our tennis coach, David, for a leg up. This is a great way to get to know other members, have a hit with a few different people and, for the long termers, experience different play with people you may not have hit with before.
Club Night racket action on the Tennis courts from 6:30pm and Squash courts from 7pm.
Happy Hour from 7-8pm.
Kendal's Kitchen open with yummy burgers and fries.
Bring a friend for a free trial and see if you can sign them up to our January special!!
We've had a few issues with out Telecoms provider which means our membership reminders have had to be posted out over the last few months. This is a timely reminder to make sure your contact details are up to date, so that you receive them!
If you've changed address since you signed up, or your phone number, reply to this email with your new details and I'll update them. If you're not sure, just do it anyway and I'll check you're up to date.
Due to an awesome tennis event in Melbourne over the next two weeks, the office manager will be absent from Thursday afternoon through to Wednesday next week. If you need assistance please just email me and I'll be checking in once a day. You can also contact David Mustard for tennis and pro shop information or El Pres, Gary Palmer, for any urgent issues.
The bar will be closed Sat-Mon to allow our awesome bar tenders a break too.
We now need 3 more volunteer on the bar. The commitment is only one night per month and if you pair up with someone it's only every second month!
This is a great way to 'do your part' for the Club like so many others have before you. If we don't have volunteers the bar is un-manned and this can be a problem when we have visiting teams and events on at the Club, not to mention thirsty members who need a drink!
No experience necessary and all training is provided - plus you get $50 off your membership each year and a few free drinks while you're there! Contact Sophie in the office if interested.
