Hello fellow members,

As you probably aware I will be your new Captain for this coming Winter Indoor Season so I thought you might like some background information about myself and the coming season.

I have only been a member of the club for 4 years, but in that time I have been lucky to represent the club for the last 3 years in the Coastal Cup, I have played 1 year in the Over 60's league and just recently organised and played in the Indoor Inter Club League.

For those of you wishing to put a name to a face then I am the one in the odd shoes!

This position of Club Captain is obviously new to me, however I will do my very best for you and the club. I will have a number of Vice Captains to help with this demanding role, Tony Jacks, John Dalby, Martin Bandelow, Janette and Derek Slatford, John Peoples and Roy Wallace. They will all be willing to assist you with any aspect of the club wherever possible.

During the course of this winter season there will be a number of friendly matches taking place. I would ask you to keep a close eye out on the Notice Board for all the details and to put your name down as soon as possible.

Please mark down the position you wish to play in and then when selected please TICK your acceptance to play. I will also be listing reverses, if you haven't ticked your name to play then a reserve will be selected in your place. I will do my utmost to ensure everyone has a game during the season.

Martin Bandelow will be running my Captain's Charity Day on Wednesday 6th April 2022 and talso Captain v President Day on the 23rd February 2022. Donated raffle prizes will be very welcome and all details will be posted on the Notice Board in due course.

Please help us to make this season a safe and most enjoyable season during these difficult times.

Thank you for your support.


John Fry

Club Captain.

Many thanks
