HLTC Defibrillator Project Update

We are delighted to announce that HLTC has been awarded £1000 from Tesco's Bags of Help initiative to pay for our defibillator. We are now in the process of acquiring one which we hope will be installed in the Clubhouse soon. It will be easy to use, with no need for training, as opening it starts a series of voice instructions on what to do, and the 'shocking' process is automatic (and it won't shock at all if the conditions aren't right).

Thanks to all who voted for us!

Thai Evening - 9th September

Great British Tennis Weekend - 9th July

We are hosting an open day as part of the Great British Tennis Weekend on the 9th July in association with the LTA. The event is open to anyone thinking of trying something new, or picking up where they left off! All you need  to do is register for one of the session on the Clubspark event available at this link

Our coaches Justin and Oliver will be running sessions for juniors in the morning (9:30am - 12:30pm) and adults in the afternoon (2pm - 5pm).

The morning will be split into three one-hour sessions:
6-8 years: 9:30am - 10:30am
9-12 years: 10:30am - 11:30am
12+ years: 11:30am - 12:30pm

The afternoon will be split into three one-hour taster sessions, ideal for people new to the sport or who haven't picked up a racquet in a long time. We have some racquets available should you not have your own. Those of you who would like to join in with our members and see our facilities are also welcome to reserve a place for the free play session (running in parallel to the coaching taster sessions) via the event link. There are limited spaces available for each of the coaching sessions so please sign up and book to avoid disappointment! Our members will be providing tea and cakes after 3pm, as is club tradition!

There is a reduction on membership fees available exclusively on the day for new members.

Casino & Cocktails Night - 24th June

Help HLTC's Defibrillator Project with Tesco Bags Of Help

Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 – all raised from the 5p bag levy – being awarded to local community projects. Bags of Help offers community groups and projects across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags. HLTC has successfully applied to Bags of Help for a funding opportunity to buy a defibrillator for the club, which will significantly increase the chances of survival for anyone suffering a Sudden Cardiac Arrest at the club. The public will now vote in store during July and August on who should receive the £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 awards.

Please vote for us at every opportunity !

Notice of Annual General Meeting

Tuesday 6 September 2016 at 7.30pm

The AGM will be held at Horley LTC starting at 7.30pm on Tuesday 6 September 2016.

Since HLTC became a Limited Liability Company and a Registered Charity, rule changes are now made by the Committee rather than in General Meeting (the safety net for members being that they can raise resolutions to over-ride Committee decisions) and proxy voting can be done at General meetings.

You may appoint someone to vote as a proxy on your behalf in the AGM.  To do this you must notify the Committee in writing or by email ( not later than 48 hours before the meeting ie by 7.30pm on Sunday 4 September 2016.  You should address notifications to the Secretary (Gail Palmer) and put them in her folder behind the bar.

Other than the election of officers the Committee is unaware of any specific proposals requiring a vote.

Pam Akehurst (Chair), Pat Emens (Membership Secretary) and Jo Rosendale (Ladies Captain) will be standing down following the AGM.  We would welcome nominations for these positions, as well as the other positions.  Please speak to Committee Members if you would like to know more about specific roles.

You are invited to submit in advance items or concerns that you would like to raise.  You should do this by writing or by email to Gail as above.

If you have any questions in advance of the meeting please address them to David Johnson person or by email:
