On behalf of the Tennis Committee we would like to wish you our members a very Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year. We hope you enjoy the festive season with friends and family and we will see you all back again in the Club in 2019.
The Tennis Club AGM takes place on Wednesday, 9th January, 2019 at 7.30 p.m. in the Club House and we look forward to welcoming you all on the night.
2018 has proved a very successful year for Elm Park Tennis Club both on and off the courts. The dedication, hard work and enthusiasm of your committee, sub committees, coaching team and members has seen significant upgrades in our tennis playing facilities, continued league success and a thriving social tennis programme. We saw members playing at all standards in a huge variety of events including Club Championships, leagues, social events, coaching and inter club fixtures at both adult and junior level.
The main priority for this year's committee was to develop a strategy with concrete recommendations to put the club on a strong and sustainable footing for the future. We set up working groups to look to the future, assess the current situation and make recommendations. In addition, tennis members were surveyed, previous surveys reviewed and guidance sought from a number of different sources.
We distilled our work into eleven recommendations under Membership, Finance and Governance. Following a discussion with the Management Board the achievement of full membership was identified as the most important goal for the Tennis Club.
We will continue to work on getting our other recommendations to decision stage and this will be a priority for the 2019 Tennis Committee and Board of Management. Full details can be reviewed in our Annual Report. Click on this link https://www.elmpark.ie/_fileupload/AGMs/2018%20CLUB%20%20COMPETITIONS%20REPORT.pdf
