MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN
Welcome all to the 2018 season. After a long winter I’m looking forward to dusting the snow off my racquet and getting back on court.
This season we welcome two new teams to the league, Meifod have a new team entered in Men’s division three and Guilsfield have entered a new mixed team, also in division three. Good luck to both teams and we welcome you to the league.
There are few changes this year but maybe the most noticeable is that we have decided to try and reduce the number of fixture booklets printed. All the information in the booklet is of course on the league’s website www.montgomeryshiretennisleague.org.uk. Fixture booklets are being produced on request at the start of the season for those that would still prefer a hard copy. Many thanks again to Ian Kerry for putting together the league fixtures and for his continuing work maintaining the website.
It was noted last season that there was an increase in the number of matches that were unplayed and a team ‘claimed’ the points. Obviously, this is sometimes unavoidable, however the committee is keen to try and reduce this number and will be monitoring the situation.
We are grateful again for the ongoing sponsorship from Hanrattys.
Have a fantastic season and I look forward to seeing you all at the AGM in October.
