Dear TCI Member,
This is the last of 16 `News Updates` sent to you in 2012. I hope you have found them useful; please feel free to suggest any areas you would like to see covered in future editions.
It is coming up to time to renew your membership for 2013, and I recently sent you (on December 11th) a renewal form to use if you wish to pay by cheque. Our website developers are currently working on putting together the page on the website where members can renew their membership and pay online. As soon as this facility is available I will email you to let you know that this option is available (should be within the next few days). We do hope that you will rejoin for 2013.
I recently attended the ITF ‘Play and Stay’ conference in London, and am working on a report to all members to let you now about the new developments and ideas that were discussed. I’ll be in touch again on that soon.
Meanwhile, can I take this opportunity on behalf of myself and the Tennis Coach Ireland committee to wish you a very Happy Christmas!
All the best,

A MESSAGE FROM JOHN YANDELL OF www.tennisplayer.net
“The December issue is now available, in which the question is posed should you play “modern” or “classical” tennis? Followed by a further question–is the first question legitimate?”
