Wimbledon Ballot Results

The Wimbledon tickets ballot was carried out at 7pm yesterday evening under the scrutiny of our esteemed club secretary. (That’s me).  All eligible members names were printed, folded 3 times, and placed into the nominated ballot receptacle (my hat).  Names were then drawn out of the hat, one at a time, and the order was recorded.  The choice of remaining available tickets was then offered to members in the order in which they were drawn from the hat.

This year the three pairs of tickets have been claimed by:

  1. Jonathan Shapland
  2. Eddie Green
  3. John Grimley

Special thanks to my nominated drawmaster: Lydia Meek (aged 9), and the ballot witnesses: James Wheatley (aged 15) and Annette Meek (aged XXX).

Nutbrook Cafe Walk

nutbrookHere’s one to stick in your diary……. there will be a Sunday walk from Ilkeston Rec to the Nutbrook Cafe for bacon butties, coffee and cake on Sunday December 4th.

We will be meeting at 12pm in the bottom car park i.e. by the Sports/Gym Centre.  Please come dressed appropriately i.e. walking boots or wellies as it could be muddy.  We will leave just after 12pm so if anyone is running late please message Jo Musson, June Tsakas, Jane Gould or Sue Baker so we know to hang on for you.  We expect the walk & eating goodies to last a few hours!!!  Obviously, tennis will still take place at 1pm for those that prefer to play than walk.  Hope to see some of you there!
