Avenue Tennis Club – Coaching T Shirts
Peter Alexander has generously donated T shirts to the juniors at the Avenue Tennis Club who attend coaching sessions and to coaches Barry Ramsden, Wendy Pryce and Vinny Duddy who were delighted with them. Vinny Duddy said that he hoped the shirts would help to encourage a good club and team ethic. He also hoped they would be a great advertisement for the club via friends and family, of the Avenue juniors who wore them, to encourage more juniors and their parents to come along and give tennis a go, especially on the Friday family friendly tennis nights.
Vinny said all the kids were very pleased with the T shirts and thanked Peter for his generousity on their behalf. Peter has been a player and member of the Avenue Club for over 80 years, during which time he has been a mainstay of the club throughout its various ups and downs. He has occupied many posts in the Club over the years, including President, Chairman and Captain, and was appointed the Club’s first Vice-President . He has always made himself available to help out the club in any way he can, his loyal service and hard work being recognized some years ago when he was awarded life time membership, and the Club is extremely grateful to him for his continued support and encouragement. Like all clubs the Avenue are always looking for new playing members but if playing is not for you why not come along and offer your services to the Committee who run and manage the club on a voluntary basis – they are always looking for new ideas and people to help.
