1. A brief summary of the Ashford CC New Nets Project

As most of our members are aware, there has been an ongoing project to provide the club with a much needed outdoor net facility.

The original nets were, unfortunately, poorly positioned and lacked the necessary maintenance so they need replacing.

Your Committee identified a suitable location a few years ago, planning permission was sought and obtained and funding possibilities were explored. Unfortunately all the funding opportunities that the club sought were unsuccessful and the project stuttered to a halt. The project is likely to cost around £85,000 so this is not something which your club’s funds or the Sports Club’s funds will cover; we are dependent on donations, additional specific fund-raising and / or grant assistance.

A new and enthusiastic sub-committee has been formed and the project has been re-started. The sub-committee has recently had a rethink and a new position is now planned which is believed removes the concerns about the originally planned location and will be far more acceptable to all.

See attached diagram and the Additional Photo on the next page to view the new location.

See the Additional Photo 2 on the attached page to view what the planned facility will look like this when completed.

If you have any further questions about the nets, please speak to one of the new sub-committee (Jim Berressem, Saad Choudhary, Alison McCreedy, Keith Manning, Ben Simper or Chris Evans).
