Chairman’s Remarks for our 61st Season updated 12 April 2021

The 102 teams entered in the 2022 Summer League break down into 41 Mens, 33 Womens & 28 Mixed, so the leagues will be : Mens 5 divisions of 7 teams & one of 6, Womens 3 divisions of 7 teams & two of 6,              Mixed 4 divisions of 7 teams. There will be no fixtures during the Spring Bank Holiday Week 30th May to 5th June, during which HM The Queen's Platinum Jubilee will be celebrated. As usual the rescheduling weeks will be in August.

Rule changes have confirmed that the requirement for post-match refreshments remains removed.
A further attempt to revive the John Ford Memorial Tournament with individual rather than team entries will be made during August 2022 on the Devizes courts with Trowbridge promoting the event.

The 2021 Annual Presentation Evening was held successfully at Lansdown Tennis & Squash Club, Bath on Saturday 2nd October 2021 with an excellent meal provided in-house by their Catering Manager & staff – we had to manage without our Match Secretary, Eddy Watts, who was still recovering from a knee operation but the evening progressed smoothly with Tessa McWhirter (chess on a tennis court) of Chippenham Park Club being presented, to her surprise, with the Millenium Shield. Scout Johnstone of Seend was awarded Junior Player of the Year and Seend's Frankie Goddard accepted the Club Rep of the Year award on behalf of winner Ric Ellinger.

Marshfield have accepted the League Presidency for 2022 and will be hosting the 2022 Annual Presentation Evening at the end of the season at a date to be announced, whilst Holt Club have invited to be President-Elect (for 2023).

The End of Season Meeting is scheduled for Monday 5th September at 7.00pm by Zoom.

Have an enjoyable summer.
Mike Powell
C&DTLg Chairman.
