This time of year is always hectic for the Tennis Club Captain. On top of the planning the calendar for the new season in conjunction with tennis committee, Simon, Tennis Eastern, HB Veterans and other clubs, there are teams and managers to organise for interclub competitions (some arm-twisting skills needed), Business House to get underway, membership initiatives and issues, and Season Opening Day to cope with. It would also be nice if all this were not at the expense of actually playing some tennis! Tony Denton is into his second year of Captaincy and he's still accomplishing all with his characteristic grin. Here he is on Saturday 14 October at Season Opening Day (delayed - dealing with fickle HB Spring weather is another of his responsibilities!), and he is even sizzling the sausages! Good on you Tony, and thank you very much - the club cannot function without volunteers such as you.
