In this edition of "Between the Lines:"
  • Member Survey Results Now Online
  • End of Season Party: November 7th
  • Proxy Reminder


Member Survey Results
In August, we invited all our Adult and Intermediate Members to complete a brief survey that would tell us how courts were being used, how members would like to use them, and any suggestions that would enhance their LPTC playing experience. Approximately 1/3 of you took the time to fill out the survey to tell us what you thought. This is a fantastic response rate--thank you to all those who participated. Your opinion counts. And, if you recall, we promised some swag to a randomly selected number of survey participants. Those names will be announced and the swag awarded at our closing dinner on November 7th. 

We have been analyzing the results and are pleased to say that members are generally very happy with the tag up time/reserved time available, and the organized activities. In fact when asked what changes would encourage members to play even more tennis, almost 40% said they were already playing as much tennis as they wanted!  

The actual survey results can be viewed by clicking on the Member Survey Results Button above. Here are some key findings:

- 36% play 5-6 hours/week, usually during weekdays
- 53% prefer tag up play vs organized activities
- 95% participate in any/all of:  Early Birds, Round Robins, House League
- 50% prefer to play before noon on weekdays (a real change from years ago when evening play was considered prime time)
- 46% said the reserved court was important or very important to them
- 26% said they would like more organized activities at night

A number of write-in suggestions were received (thanks to those who took the time to submit them). More discussion will be held at the AGM on October 24th. 
         END OF SEASON PARTY:           NOVEMBER 7TH
Sadly our 2015 season is winding down, but it won't go quietly. Come one, come all to our "END OF SEASON GET-TOGETHER" ON NOVEMBER 7TH at the MILLER TAVERN, 3885 Yonge Street, just south of York Mills. Drinks, food, prizes and lots of good cheer await members and their guests. More details and an online sign-up form will be available shortly--stay tuned for the next "Between the Lines." OR, you can sign up now in the clubhouse on the sign-up sheets provided.  Don't miss this every popular event. 
Just a reminder that all personalized proxies have been delivered to those Adult and Intermediate members entitled to vote at our upcoming AGM on Oct. 24th. If you plan on attending the meeting, you do not have to do anything with the proxy. If however you are unable to attend and want to entrust someone else with your vote, you must register your personalized proxy with our Club Secretary, Caroline Gray, by mail, by scanning and emailing it, or by bringing it to her in the clubhouse on the designated days/times cited in the Proxy Instructions. If you have any questions, please send them to Caroline at
