Helping Your Club
It’s a while since I mentioned our EasyFundraising initiative. Details are HERE Every time you make an online purchase the Club receives a donation. At no cost to YOU! You might like to know that there is also an app. Just go to your App Store and type in ‘easyfundraising’ – With the easyfundraising app, you can shop with over 7,000 brands, add your favourites and track how much you’ve raised for Frinton-on-Sea Lawn Tennis Club. It’s a brilliant way for us to raise funds through your online activities without it costing you a penny. Win, win… Ker-ching!
This brilliant competition is BACK! It’s fun to compete or spectate and we’re joining up with Frinton’s Cricket and Golf Clubs to hold this tournament again this year. SPL have kindly sponsored the event and we hope you’ll want to take part or spectate.
First we need competitors! Sign up sheets are at the Club if you would like to represent your Club and play cricket, golf, tennis or croquet in the Frinton triangular tournament.
We’ll need 8 golfers for the competition to be held on the 25th June @ 3pm at Frinton Golf Club
We’ll require 11 cricketers on 9th July @ 12 noon at Frinton Cricket Club
For our home competition 4 tennis players and 4 croquet players on 23rd July @ 2pm at our Club
Food and drinks after and each event will be available and we expect this to be a fantastic sporting and social event. Do mark the dates in your diary.
Whilst we have tracked down most of the Club’s special trophies, some are still missing. These were lost or not returned after being won previously. Either if you are in possession of one and could return it to us? That would be wonderful. Or would you like to donate a cup which can be named accordingly – we are after 3 if possible. If you can help, please contact Bill Greeno.
