Afternoon tea at the clubhouse

We’d like to invite members of the club for an afternoon tea event in the clubhouse on Sunday 3 March, from 4pm to 6pm, with an extended social session or cardio beforehand to work up an appetite. Please feel free to bring your delicious home-baked food!

Club Welfare Officer and new Club Policy Documents

As part of the new LTA club registration process, the club committee is required to appoint the new committee position of Welfare Officer, and also to produce a series of new club policy documents. We are very pleased to report that Steve Lynch has taken up the Welfare Officer position, following an approach from the committee.

As a long-standing and popular member, we are sure he will be very good in this role. The purpose of the Welfare Officer position is to be a key point of contact for any member who has any matters or concern relating to the club. The LTA's expectation is that the person appointed will be approachable, tactful, discreet, a good listener, caring, and with the ability to resolve any conflict that might arise. We are, of course, hoping that the role will will not need to come into play.

We already have a friendly, welcoming, inclusive and relaxed club, and every member has a responsibility to ensure that the club continues to offer a safe and friendly environment for everyone. It's worth adding that the role is primarily aimed at matters of a serious nature - not things like linecall disputes. If you want to email Steve about any matters there is a dedicated email:

The BTM Wimbledon Ballot now requires you to OPT IN to be included in the Meadows ballot for 2019 Wimbledon tickets. Please opt-in even if you might not want tickets this year. This increases our ticket allocation for club members.

The club normally gets a good allocation of tickets. Last year we received 23 pairs of tickets between the 2 venues including the Men's Singles Final. This year the Championships run from 1-14th July 2019.

Also ensure that you have added both Meadows City Tennis Club and Meadows Tennis Park as “Your Venues” at this link
