Dinner Dance 201923 September 2019
Another great evening at Lytham Tennis Club with the End of Season Dinner Dance also known as the Summer Ball. This is the highlight of our social calendar and not only provides the opportunity for members to get together but also raises funds to administer our facilities. This coming year we hope to install an inflatable dome over 2 carpet courts for use during the winter months and this event will provide additional monies for this.
Our thanks go to the organising committee of Gill Totty, Liz Le Cardiet and Helen Rowe and thanks to Anne-Marie Hessey for her help setting up the room and to others who assisted in various ways. Our thanks to Tony Benedict for the entertainment during the evening and by now should have fully recovered from the experience.
The food was excellent thanks to Davina Parker-Murphy and High Class Catering of Wrea Green and to their staff . We must not forget Terry and his staff who coped extremely well serving our thirsty members but had to accommodate the last cricket match of the season and their ‘boisson soif’.
At this time we have calculated a profit on the night of £1,315 only because of the hard work of the social committee and to those who generously contributed to the raffle and the auction. May we take this opportunity to thank the various local businesses that volunteered magnificent prizes and made the evening the success we have become accustomed.
Finally, congratulations to Kyle Hendry who received the Most Improved Player (he won the mens doubles handicap final with Marc Whitehead, the mixed doubles handicap final with Judith Dodson and the men’s singles handicap final) and to Gill Totty and Liz Le Cardiet who jointly received the coveted member(s) of the year.
