September Bulletin

06 Sep 2010

The season is about to get into full swing and time to give you a quick round up of what's coming up. We hope you'll notice the fantastic new lighting, new tables (arriving any day now!) , and the new membership scheme which means the club operates on a much more professional basis. We have around 40 members so far who are enjoying playing as often as they like for one flat annual fee. Initial reaction is that it makes for a much better club spirit and much better value and the club is well supported at all sessions.
 
If you are playing in one of the BATTS teams in the Harlow League (HTTL) please find the team details attached. Still time for last minute changes if you wish to join up or to move team. You do need to take up a membership option or pay a £55 HTTL fee BEFORE playing. There is also a minimum requirement to have a player membership licence which costs £5.84 direct from the ETTA or £6 to the HTTL who will do it for you. I know the changes can be complicated and I am happy to run through all the options with you.
 
We continue to have 3 club nights on Mondays , Wednesdays and Fridays from 7pm  and Harlow League matches commence on Monday 27th September. On the same 3 days Aad offers superb junior coaching sessions for enthusiastic youngsters. This coming weekend (11/12 Sept) is British League Division 2 at BATTS. Admission is free and we have funds to pay for umpires if you are willing to help out at all. Please let me know !
 
Another exciting new development is our sponsorship agreement with Topspin Sports for all table tennis kit and equipment. This allows BATTS members 30% discount off blades, rubbers etc and 50% discount off the new club kit. Please ask for a catalogue or go online and consider buying the new BATTS shirt which looks superb ! The website is www.topspintt.com
