50-50 Club

Dear KLTC Friend/Member

Well, what another strange year, but hopefully things are getting back to normal. The 50-50 Club carries on in its traditional way by helping our wonderful tennis club and now it needs even more help than ever from past and present members and friends.

Carol Grant (our new chairperson), Sarah Rawcliffe and Dave Willford are just a few of the 50-50 Club members who have won first prize in the past year – let’s hope we can add your name to the list next year. Many thanks to the 64 people who joined the 50-50 Club last year; ranging in age from pre-school to octogenarians, which meant we were able to have 12 monthly draws. Hopefully more participants will join this year and we will be able to have more and BIGGER prizes.

This mutually beneficial event is one of the ways we raise money for Knowle Lawn Tennis Club.  Loyal members past and present have dug deep in their pockets and have been a great support and I hope this year will be no different, but for those of you who don’t know what it’s all about let me explain….

  • For a one-off payment of £15 your name will be entered in a series of draws over the next year
  • Each month 3 names will be drawn to win a monetary prize such as £20, £10 or £5
  • The first draw will take place in March 2022
  • A list of winners will be posted on the club notice board 
  • Under lottery regulations we can only give a proportion of the money collected as prize money the rest goes to club funds

Please completed this form and pay £15 as soon as possible

    By cash or cheque (made payable to 
    ‘Knowle Lawn Tennis Club’) and posted to
    Cynthia Douglas
    27A Knowle Road,
    Knowle, Bristol BS4 2EB

    Or Bank Transfer to:
    Knowle Lawn Tennis Club
    Sort Code: 60-12-29
    A/C No: 76412393
    Ref: FFC and your name. 

    Ask other members of your family or friends to join too – it’s probably the best investment around at the moment!!  The more people who join – the bigger the prizes.  Remember all profits will be used to ensure our club maintains and improves its wonderful facilities.  Please be generous.

    Questionnaire 2022

    As your new Chairperson, I’d like to canvas your opinions on what you want from your club. We’ve had a high number of new members and it would be great if everyone has the opportunity to shape the club moving forwards.  

    With this in mind, I’m inviting you to complete a quick survey by 13th February.  Once all responses have been collated, the committee and I will use them to form a plan for the next 12 months.

    I look forward to hearing from you all and please don’t hesitate to contact me directly on  at any time if you have any questions or suggestions.

    Thanks
    Carol
