Crowborough Tennis and Squash Club Facilities Improvements 


 

At our last club AGM our treasurer Alan Fearnley made the following statement:

‘Going forward the main financial challenge over the next five years is to fund the outstanding investment in the playing surfaces and other Club facilities. Your Board, in conjunction with the sports committees and CTA have drawn up a medium term facilities plan and funding options. This will include seeking grants and may include some form of cautious credit in order to accelerate progress.’

The General Committee are pleased to update you on progress. Alan has succeeded in obtaining a £73,000 interest free loan from the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), repayable over 10 years. We intend to accept this loan and may also seek further funding of approximately £25,000, from member loans or the Charity Bank. This, in addition to the £50,000 cash we are currently holding, should allow us to complete our medium term facilities plan. We aim to carry this out this work during 2016 and early 2017.

The projects are likely to include:

  • - Upgrading the showers and changing rooms PLANNED FOR FEBRUARY 2017
  • - Upgrading the bar area including the office space
  • - Resurfacing tennis courts 7&8 -  COMPLETED SEPTEMBER 2016
  • - Upgrading floodlighting on 7&8 as the existing poles need replacing - COMPLETED SEPTEMBER 2016
  • - Upgrading floodlighting on tennis court 9 - COMPLETED SEPTEMBER 2016
  • - Increasing the veranda area to create a better social space

Annual loan repayments will take up around 30-40% of the current surplus we generate enabling us to replenish our cash reserves over time for future developments and upgrades and other cash demands faced by your Club. 

We will provide updates as we go through the year. We see this as a massive opportunity to take the club on to a new level and hope you will share this news widely to encourage new members to the club.
