Keep up to date with our latest news:
The clubs AGM will take place on Wednesday 4th April at 7:30pm in the Clubhouse.
All members are welcome, and in fact we would encourage as many as possible to attend. This is an opportunity for you to have your say about how your club is run, and to offer any suggestions about ways we could improve (nobody is perfect ? ).
You don’t have to worry about being strong-armed into a committee role, these are all volunteer positions. Having said that we will not turn anyone away who wants to get more involved, fresh ideas and viewpoints are always welcome.
We are holding the AGM in the Clubhouse this year to highlight the poor condition. We desperately need a new one and so if anyone has any ideas or suggestions on this point in particular these will be well received.
We plan to hold a club night from 6pm, breaking for the AGM, and then continuing after, so don’t forget your racquets.
We look forward to seeing you all.
Well the new season is almost upon us and Riccall TC are begining preparations with an open team practice night on Tuesday 17th April at our Landing Lane courts.
Anyone interested in playing for one of the clubs teams (we have two mixed, a mens and ladies team, all doubles), is invited to come down to the courts at 7pm on the 17th and enjoy some free tennis, and a challenge.
We have teams in various divisions of the York and District Leagues, come on down and give it a go.
Promotion for both 1st and 2nd Mixed Teams
2017 1st Mixed team who secured promotion to Div 3 : L to R Pat Woodward, Alex Leach, Andrew Dunning, Michelle Hall (C), Louise Marshman, George Lintott
Our 1st and 2nd Mixed teams have had a fantstic season, both securing promotion from their respective divisions. The 1st Mixed Team, with back to back promotions, will play in Division 3 of the York and District Mixed Tennis Leagues in 2018. The 2nd team went one better by winning their division with one match still left to play, securing their second promotion in 3 seasons. They will play in Division 7 in 2018.
These succeses can be attributed to an increase in membership, additional coaching sessions for beginners and regular players, and a growing strength in depth for the club as a whole.
A big THANK YOU to Riccall Parish Council who, following our application for a grant to help tidy up the area around the courts, have approved the request and sent a cheque for £400. This has been put to good use already, paying for the cutting back of the hedge at the back of the courts.
As many of you will have noticed, our existing clubhouse is in poor repair and in urgent need of renovation - if not something more drastic! We are exploring grant options to help us and have the full support of Riccall Sportsfield Association, our umbrella body.
Please contact the club if you would like to know more or want to contribute in any way.
