I am pleased to continue as tennis section treasurer for the next year, 2017/18.
I have over 40 years’ business experience, latterly at a senior level, am currently Chair of a charity which supports needy, financially disadvantaged pensioners, and am a trustee director of one of the UK’s larger pension schemes.
My tennis experience includes representing Sussex in under 18 and men’s teams, and Warwickshire in the over 60’s men’s team; managing the Sussex U18 boys’ team in the 1980’s, as well as representing Sussex LTA in respect of junior development in the LTA South East Region. I also served on West Worthing TC’s tennis committee, helping the club become a county week centre and the organisation of an open tournament sponsored by the local building society. I became a WBC member 4 years ago, following a move to Warwickshire.
In the last year as your tennis treasurer I have established regular, timely financial reporting for the tennis committee; improved the budgeting process and am in the process of establishing some insightful analysis of income and expenditure.
Following re-election I will continue, with fellow committee members, to develop our financial management; seek opportunities to increase income from various sources, whilst closely managing expenditures; and ensure any significant development proposals are properly researched, costed and member consultation sought before any decision to proceed is made.
I will continue to work for the benefit of all members.
