I very much hope that the sudden cold snap has not been too problematic. The early and heaviest snow, a first at this time of the year for the last 40 years, has certainly presented a number of challenges for most people and it is not even winter yet.
We had a good response to our Build your Snowman challenge and the winners are Caitlan and Ethan who win three stickers each with their impressive effort. See picture below. Here is a reminder of some key dates for your diaries.
The Grass Roots Programme will continue until Saturday 18 December As in previous years we encourage everyone to dress up in a festive outfit and a prize will be given for the best costume. Any outstanding matches for the Majors will be played in 2011.
The GRP will then resume on Saturday 15 January. The Mini Tennis Academy classes in 2011 will resume on 13 and 14 January respectively. If you have not received your application form by now, please let me know. The Fit for Sport classes will resume on 14 January. The Ladies Sessions and Mums and Tots classes will resume on 18 and 20 January respectively.
Finally, on behalf of the Hylands Team may I take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones a peaceful and joyful Christmas and a Healthy New Year. For those of you thinking of sending me a card, chocolates wines etc please don’t. Thank you but I already have everything I could possibly want. Instead, if you can, please make a donation to either the British Heart Foundation or the Royal Institute for the Blind. Stay warm. Giorgio Bugnatelli TDA LTA DipTM
