Our next Pro Tournament is a Men’s $25k taking place at The Shrewsbury Club between February 5th -12th 2022.

As always, in order to ensure that it all runs smoothly, we need YOUR help. The success of any tournament hangs on US - the volunteers!! We received a lot of positive feedback from the last tournament so we’re on a roll!!!

We are needed at different times each day which I list below. I’d be grateful to hear from you as to when you are able to help.

As always, you will receive a free meal for every shift you do (to be taken either BEFORE or AFTER your shift – but please, NOT during) as well as a hoodie. The sponsors for the two pro tournaments held at the club this year are operating on a 2 for 1 deal and so we will be using the same hoodies for this tournament as we did in November.  If you weren’t able to help at that event, please also let Judy know what hoodie size you need when you let me know your availability. If you were at the November tournament, please wear the hoodie you already have. Thank you.  The next event will take place in the Autumn where there will be a new hoodie for everyone again.

Due to the differing requirements throughout the week, we need a different number of volunteers per day. Thank you also for preparing to be a little flexible regarding your finishing times.

Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th will only require 2 volunteers per shift (plus a reserve).

Monday 7th until Wednesday 9th will need 5 volunteers (plus a reserve) per shift.

For Thursday 10th until finals day on Saturday 12th we will need 7 volunteers (plus a reserve) per shift.
So please let me know how many and which shifts you are happy to do. It is always great for me to know that you can do several shifts in the week and then I can sort out the rota. Thank you.

Here are the shift times:

Saturday 5th
11.00 - 3.00 and 2.30 – 6.00
Sunday 6th
9.00 - 3.00 and 2.30 – 8.00
Monday 7th
9.00 -1.00 and 12.30 – 4.30
Tuesday 8th
9.00 – 3.30 and 3.00 - 9,30

Wednesday 9th
9.00 – 2.00 and 1.30 – 6.30
Thursday 10th
10.00 – 3.00 and 2.30 -7,30
Friday 11th
10.30 – 3.30 and 3.00 – 8.00
Saturday 12th
10.30 – 2.00 and 12.00 – 5.00

We will also need a small team of drivers to transport the players from their hotels to the club. This will be organised by someone else, but please let me know if you are happy to do this role and I will pass your name on. Naturally, we require that you have a clean driving licence – thank you.

Judy would  appreciate hearing from you ideally before  December 22nd because I am working away from home again from December 27th until January 12th and need to get it all sorted before my next work trip on January 18th! Judy can be contacted on voluntee[email protected]

As you might imagine, it takes time to work out the rota and then to send it to you so you also have time to plan your week.

Thankfully I WILL be at the club until the Wednesday of this event so I look forward to working with you in person this time.

THANK YOU once again from Dave Courteen, myself, the club, the LTA and all of the players.
