Following a lovely dinner, Chairperson Lucy Smale took to the stage to deliver a summary of the season. Lucy was proud to announce that it had again been our most successful year so far, with Tigers finishing third in division 2, newly promoted Panthers finishing a respectable sixth in division 4 and Cougars narrowly missing out on promotion, finishing forth in division 6.
Lucy then began the presentations, following nominations from the whole Club. Winners were:
Cougars Players' Player: Louise Piner
Panthers Players' Player: Julia Eldridge
Club Personality: Amie Hoskin
Lucy then handed over to Coach Rudi Britz, who thanked everyone for their hard work throughout the year and said how pleased he was to have had such a successful first season. He then went onto his awards, which he admitted had been difficult to decide between so many worthy candidates. However, they went to:
Most Improved: Vicky Ford
Best Attendence: Lucy Smale & Holly Lemon
Rudi then handed back to Lucy for some special thank yous... To Rudi for all his hard work and dedication, helping us to acheive our best results in the league so far; to Rudi's partner Lisa for putting up with him never being at home; to Glen Rogers for his photography of all our home games; to the Club umpires, presenting Syrina Cotton with flowers for all her help, and in her absence thanking Helen Tuxford.
Lucy then gave special mention to Amie Hoskin, who is sadly leaving us after many years with the club, presenting her with flowers to thank her for all her hard work both on the court and behind the scenes with the committee. She will certainly be missed and we all wish her well, and look forward to seeing her on court next season, albeit in different colours!
Thank you to everyone who came on Saturday, helping to make this year's Halloween Party a huge success.
Everyone made such an effort and the costumes were superb - although not sure Walt would have been too impressed with our efforts....
Big thanks to The Railway for hosting the event, it was a fantastic night and as a club we raised £100 - well done girls.
Tickets are £5 each. The more we sell, the more the club benefits.
It's always a great night, with prizes for the best fancy dress, so get planning and get selling girls!
Our annual season dinner and presentation was held on Friday 13th May.
After welcome drinks at the Railway Inn, by way of a thank you for their support during the season, everyone headed to the newly re-opened Elliot House Hotel.

Jo was proud to announce that it had been the most successful year so far for the Club, with Panthers gaining promotion, Tigers finally earning their place in division 2 and Cougars very narrowly missing out on the automatic promotion places.
Jo then handed over to each team Captain for them to give their own summary and thoughts of the season, for their respective teams. Emma, Amie and Lucy all agreed what an enjoyable season it had been for everyone and described their various highs and lows, before awarding their Captain’s Choice trophies.
The winners for 2010/11 were:

By far the night was our best end of season gathering to date, and it was nice to see so many husbands and partners supporting the Club. Special thanks was given to Kerry and her team for organising a lovely evening.
