Former membership secretary Ruth receiving flowers from Wells TC for her service

Players say thankyou to club membership secretary

Wells Tennis Club gave many thanks to Ruth Clarke for eight years of looking after its 200 members at their Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 27th February. 

Ruth has welcomed every new member to the club, managed subscriptions and the introduction of online bookings long after she stopped playing herself.  She hands over to new membership secretary Clare Mather. 

At the AGM members heard from Club Chairman Dan Cooke about another successful year of competitive and social tennis, a drive to encourage more young people in the area to enjoy tennis, and on progress of a potential move with Wells Rugby Club to a new site at Haybridge. 

Dan Cooke commented: 

“A community club is only as good as its volunteer committee.  Ruth has been a great example of dedicated effort to make sure every new member feels welcome and has the best start at our club and, of course, that we collect all our subs to remain an efficient enterprise!”
