The weather shone brightly on Sunday as we welcomed LTA President Cathie Sabin to Castlegarth for an update on the clubs progress following the devastating floods on Boxing Day. Cathie was able to see all our recent improvements and witness busy courts with many members taking advantage of the summer type weather.
Chairman Steve Jones spoke with great passion about the club and all the efforts made by a number of individuals and the committee in ensuring tennis was available as soon as possible to members. A collage produced courtesy of Jo Coverdale reminded us all just how bad events were back over Christmas and the tremendous turnaround in such a relatively short period of time to address the situation.
Special mentions to Peter Johnson who has worked tirelessly in arranging contractors for many of the works carried out and to Trish Bell for organising the buffet during the presidential tour.
Cathie later fed back that she had thoroughly enjoyed her visit and appreciated all the time spent in making the day a success.
