It is with great sadness that we advise members of the sad passing of Pam.
Pam had been a member of this club since she was 21. Pam joined as a “B” member shortly after MLTC instigated a “B” section to allow people with no tennis experience to join our club. Pam always recalled being initially ignored by “A” members who only wished to play with those who could play a decent game. How things changed! Within a very short time Pam had progressed into our Ladies 1st team and won her first club Ladies Singles title in 1968 at the age of 25. Between that win in 1968 and 1979 Pam went on to win the Ladies Singles ten times. She also won many Ladies Doubles and Mixed Doubles titles during that time. Pam was selected to play for Berkshire at County Week and for a couple of years was proud to captain the side. One of her proudest playing memories was to play in Division 2 for Berkshire Ladies against Kent who had been relegated from Division 1. In that match Pam played against a pair that included Virginia Wade.
Pam also served MLTC as Hon. Secretary for a couple of years, she later became a Trustee of the club, a position she held until her death.
Prior to tennis Pam played in goal for Maidenhead Ladies Hockey Club. Pam was also a very keen table tennis player. In the days before our old clubhouse burned down the club had six teams in the Maidenhead and District Table Tennis League and Pam ran the Ladies team. Pam represented Maidenhead Town team on numerous occasions. Her table tennis career went on far longer than her lawn tennis career as she was still playing league table tennis until recently and competed in many Veteran Events.
In essence Pam will be remembered as a great person to play with and against, always full of fun and willing to join in and help with anything at the club. She will be very much missed by all who knew her.
Pam is survived by her younger brother Malcolm.
Pam’s funeral has been arranged for 12.00 on Wednesday 30 August at Slough Crematorium.
A reminder that the code for the padlock at Oaken Grove is included in the confirmation email you receive when a booking is made for one of these courts.
The bar will be open on Sundays, from April 23rd until Finals Day, between noon and 3pm.
Our car park is small and spaces are narrow, it is intended for use by Members only and we ask that visitors park along All Saints Avenue.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND CONSIDERATE ! Our car park is unsuitable for large cars, SUV’s, people carriers and similar vehicles. If your vehicle is wider than 1.9 metres (6 feet and a bit in old money, or think BMW 3 series) then please park along All Saints Avenue.
The Council have painted white lines either side of the entrance to the car park but their dimensions are limited by local by-laws – if vehicles are parked close to the limit, visibility is restricted so please do take great care when driving out of the car park. Equally, when parking on All Saints Avenue please try to leave a 2 metre gap between the end of your vehicle and the white line.
As some of you will be aware, the club purchased a defibrillator several months ago and is now attached to the wall in the entrance lobby of the clubhouse.
We have had several requests for more information about how to use the defibrillator. The key points are:
