Calling all Members, Players, Parents and Prospective Members,

We hope you have enjoyed your year as a member at Mackintosh LTC. Membership fees for the 2019/20 year are due from 1st April 2019. To take advantage of the Early Bird Membership discount (save up to £30), please make payment by 30th April 2019.

We have great news that in September, major works will be undertaken at the club. Courts 1&2 will be resurfaced and Court 3 will be reconstructed, including the removal of the trees and bank. Internal fencing will also be renewed. The total cost for the project is around £82K. Unfortunately, during this time we will have limited access to courts 4&5 – we are currently investigating other facilities to ensure there are still opportunities for Coaching and Social hitting during this period.

This year we are delighted to be able to process all membership renewals online for the first time, using LTA software ClubSpark.

To renew your membership you will need to follow a few simple steps:
1. Click here (you will be redirected to our ClubSpark membership page)
2. Register / Log in to ClubSpark
3. Select your membership package
4. Make payment (there is an option to pay in full via Direct Debit, Credit/Debit Card, Cheque or Cash)

Following on from last year, we are keen to get more parents playing tennis at the club. We have got an option to join as a parent member for £50 – this entitles you to use the courts with your child on Saturdays after 3pm, all day on Sundays and during school holidays (when the courts are available).

Additionally, we are continuing our membership referral offer this year – if you refer a friend who joins as a FULL Individual Adult, you will receive a FREE 1/2 hour Individual Lesson or a Mackintosh LTC T-shirt.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in contact with Rhys Morgan (Head Coach) or Emma McClory (Club Secretary).

Frying Pan Mini Tennis Competition Results

Our Shrove Tuesday frying pan tennis competition turned out to be a big success with 12 players taking part.

All players had loads of fun, and there were some unbelievable points played considering players were using frying pans.

The final was contested by Alex and Tom with both players proving they were worthy finalists with an amazing display of powerful baseline rallies and net play skills. In a close match Alex eventually came out on top winning 10-8 to become the 2015 Mackintosh Frying Pan Tennis champion.

Following the tennis all players enjoyed some delicious pancakes in the clubhouse to round off a great evening.

Frying Pan Mini Tennis Competition

With this Tuesday 17th February falling on Shrove Tuesday, we have decided to run Social Tennis with a difference for this week.

Commencing at 7pm we will be running a Frying Pan Mini Tennis competition. Normal tennis rules will apply, however entrants will be required to play with a frying pan instead of a racket. Members are encouraged to bring along their own frying pans to play with. The event is open to all adults and stronger juniors. Entries will cost £2 per person and will include a pancake in the clubhouse after the competition finishes.

There will also be an opportunity to play usual Social Tennis for those players knocked out of the competition and after the competition ends.
