Ferry Tennis Club - About the Club
President's Welcome 2014-2015
Welcome to Broughty Ferry Tennis Club (BFTC) the best venue in Dundee to come along and play tennis. Whether you’re a tiny tot or a mature mover, we hope to offer players of all ages and stages an enjoyable experience on the tennis courts and in the clubhouse.
BFTC has achieved club Dundee status and also clubmark status awarded by the LTA. None of this is possible without all the hard work from the committee members in managing the day to day running of the club. By continuing to put procedures in place we will ensure recognition on an annual basis.
Club membership is healthy and reflects the large number of players we have in the club. As a member, think about bringing along a friend on a “pay and play” basis so they can sample the courts and clubhouse. They may consider joining us.
Our head coach, Craig Barr, has again offered a range of coaching and fun sessions for players of all standards; a big thank you to him for his loyalty and friendly manner that continues to attract new players to the club. Look at the handbook for what’s on offer this season. Craig is ably assisted by a number of assistants who are also gaining coaching qualifications along the way. It is a pleasure to have some of them on the committee again this year.
Thanks to the skills of Craig and the commitment of our teams, the club has enjoyed successes in the adult and junior leagues this year .Thank you to all the team captains for organising the competitive side of tennis and to parents who support their children in the junior leagues. Here’s to another enjoyable and rewarding year ahead for all of us.
We will continue to offer a number of social events this year and I would encourage all members to come along and take part. It’s all about having some fun and meeting other members.
Club members are the heart of any club and the committee welcomes suggestions from all members .Please feel free to contact committee members if you would like something raised at committee meetings. Let us know if you would like to be part of a committee that sincerely considers the best interests of BFTC and its members.
Best Wishes, Jenni Harvey, BFTC President
