Hello! And here we are and the second tournament of the season has almost finished. What a week! How fabulous has the tennis been? And what a competition! Having just had the longest day of the year… the summer season is well underway and there’s a lot going on at your Club. So, here’s this week’s news!
Our Master Thatchers have signed off the works. All completed and works done in time and on budget. Our thanks to James Stock and his team for the amazing work they have done, to our Board and in particular Richard Noel and Clive Allenby for coordinating the works. And our President, Martin Tinsley for inspiring some of the detailing that now looks so fabulous! We certainly have one of the most beautiful thatched roofs in Essex! this would not have been possible without the generous contributions and support from you, our Members. Job done!
Talking of jobs done, Martin Clift and his team have performed miracles and worked incredibly hard to get our Disabled WC facility fitted. This is a super resource and allows us to be more welcoming to more people! Again, without the support of generous benefactors, these works would not have been possible. And in as far as a WC can be a beautiful thing – thank you Martin! Thanks must also go to Clive Allenby and Richard Noel for pushing this through and to Rebecca Williamson for coordinating the day to day management of the project. Bravo and thanks to all involved.

Croquet | One Ball Competition
A new game is catching on in Frinton – One Ball Croquet! This game was initially played last year as a one-off to support the FOS|LTC thatched roof fundraising. It was so popular it has been instituted into the croquet competition repertoire! A full complement of players are competing making it the most popular competition this year by far. Semi-finals will be played on Saturday 12th August and the finals on Sunday 27th August.
The one ball game suits tennis players with two outstanding players Bill Greeno and Mark Grover showing the established croquet players how to play the game.
