Dear OTC Members,
Currently the OTC runs 10 district league teams which for such a small club is a terrific achievement.
The teams are:
Basingstoke District League
Ladies A & B
Mens A & B
Mixed A, B & C
East Hants LTA League
Ladies (summer only)
At the January Players Committee Meeting the team captains identified that members, especially new members, needed an avenue of introduction to both the captains and the teams. Also discussed was that the pool of existing players were possibly not being used to our best advantage and team preparation for coming seasons would be a good way of improving team cohesion and performance.
So in April the OTC team captains along with Andrew our OTC coach will be running three team trials with subsequent team practices.
The trials will allow those members wishing to play in the teams to attend and register their interest, meet the other team players, and allow the captains to gauge the standard of players and then make the appropriate fit.
The teams will take all three courts for these sessions with short set play to allow the captains and Andrew to observe level of play and look at possible player pairings. The team trials are being run early in April just after membership renewals and before our 2016 Summer Season start to allow players time to prepare for the coming season. Each session will be 2 hours long.
To attend these trials please check details below for the session category and dates, choose the session/s which interest you and return this email indication which session/s you will be attending by no later than Wednesday 30th March –
Session dates are –
Mens – Monday 4th April – 7.30pm-9.30pm
Mixed – Wednesday 6th April – 7.30pm-9.30pm
Ladies – Monday 18th April – 7.30pm-9.30pm
If you aren’t able to make a session date then please reply indicating you are still interested in playing for our teams so that a team captain can contact you. Thank you for participating and looking forward to seeing you all at the trials.
