Our current Committee members

Alan Worsdale - Chairman

I see my role as Chairman as being a figurehead for the Club and representing the Club at any official functions. I will Chair regular committee meetings to ensure that the committee work in a co-ordinated manner for the benefit of the Club and its members. The greatest challenge this coming year will be dealing with the lease which is due to expire at the end of October 2022.

I have been a member of the Club for at least 25 years and was Chairman when the current courts were laid.

I hope that my past experience and my business experience of being Managing Director of a large accounting practice will benefit my role as Chairman.
