AGM and Annual Dinner

The 57th Annual General Meeting of the Seniors' Lawn Tennis Club of Great Britain will be held on Monday 7th March at The Roehampton Club commencing 6:30pm.

The Chairman and New Members' Dinner will follow the AGM at the same venue - pre-dinner drinks 7:30 for an 8pm start. The cost this year will be for members and first guest £35 per head, with additional guests at £40 per head. We would request that you apply as soon as possible to assist in event planning.

HotowkaWe are delighted to announce that our special guest this year will be professional entertainer John Hotowka. John will perform close up magic in parallel with pre-dinner drinks, also during the meal between courses and finish with a 30-minute after dinner comedy and magic cabaret. This is quite a departure from our usual after dinner speaker but we are sure it will add a great deal of appeal to one of our key social occasions. For more information on John's delivery style and content - CLICK HERE.

Papers relevant to this year's AGM, together with an Application Form for the Dinner, will be available for download by Friday 5th Feb.

Win for Dutch Seniors

The 10th annual men's fixture with the Dutch Seniors' Team, played in Almere near Amsterdam 11th - 13th Dec, ended in a defeat for the Seniors' Club of GB by a score of 8 - 14.

The match is traditionally played at singles and doubles with the Dutch taking full advantage this year of their home venue and running out strong winners.

The commemorative trophy for this fixture has been renamed the Peter Scholtz Cup, in memory of Peter who sadly died in 2015. He was a prominent member of the Dutch Team over the years and this gesture will preserve our memories of Peter for a long time to come.

A Happy New Year to all our Dutch friends and we look forward to the return fixture at the Edgbaston Priory LTC in December 2016.
