Training Venue Improvements

While Covid has kept us away from the Monday night training venue, the school has been busy updating/upgrading its heating system and also making the playing area wider by the removal of the old radiators and wall bars. A new lick of paint and possibly a bit of attention on the floor surface will make this look tip top when we can return to Monday practise again, watch this space!

PTTC Awarded Grant

It is recently been announced that Penkhull TTC has been successful in obtaining a Sport England Covid Relief Grant of over £2000. The grant will be used to purchase new club room equipment to support our club activities on Monday nights when they return. More news to follow!

Training with Andrew Rushton

Another great session at Haywood Academy with high-end coach Andrew Rushton!

The session was fully booked and this time we had 5 PTTC players attending (it could have been more, but not enough places left).  Many thanks to all the officials in our local league organisations who put so much effort into making these sessions a reality!

We’re back!

Training starts up again tonight at Clayton Hall, 7pm.  Hope to see you all there!

Summer Break!

We have now stopped coaching/training at Clayton hall Academy for the summer break. We will commence back on Monday 3rd September. Please contacts captains/key holders to practice at the match venue in Silverdale.

Please remember to renew your TTE membership over the summer or purchase a membership if you are new and want to play in the local leagues come September. Due to league rule changes this season we won’t be able to register a player for league competition until they have renewed their membership, so get it done ASAP!

Have a good summer 🙂

PTTC AGM and Awards Night Announced

Club AGM and Awards night has been set for Monday 16th April.  This is a chance for all members to voice their opinions in a structured way.

Please note that many players have yet to pay their 2018 annual membership to the club.  We rely on this annual collection of membership to help pay for the entry into the various leagues we compete in.  We would like any remaining membership fees paid in full ASAP before the AGM.  Captains – it is your responsibility to collect this money especially if your team members do not attend monday practises and get it to either Andy Smith or Rob Rhodes.

Failure to pay the clubs annual membership fee before the clubs AGM in April will result in you not been registered for future leagues starting with the 2018 summer league.
