Marketing committee update
Part of the July Newsletter - By John Callinan

This year we have set up a new marketing subcommittee. The purpose of this committee will be to ensure that your club is providing you with value for money. The strategy is called “Your Club, Your Way, proud to be a member” . Our first task was to find out what it was that you expected and we would like to thank everyone for taking part in our survey this year. We have gotten some valuable feedback and below are some of the actions we are taking.

So what happens next:
  • Based on your feedback the various sections are publishing a calendar of events for the season in all sports Squash, Tennis and Badminton  on our new website: Check out the various Sports sections pages for details.
  • One of the things you asked from us was to have the club house open throughout the day so members could enjoy the facilities whenever you wanted.
    • To this end we are delighted to announce that from the 1st August the club house will be open from 8am. For security reasons you will need to access all areas by using your swipe card but this means that from 8am you can use the courts, changing areas and if you wish you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee in the Lounge area upstairs. (Bar will not be open till evening)
  • Another thing you asked was “why can I not book my own court online”.  
    • Well from the 1st August you can. We are currently in the process of setting up an online court booking system for all sports. This will allow registered members to book their own court online without having to call into the club. You can view available courts, book a court and you and your opponent will receive email confirmation.

Communication was a big gap that you identified for us so we are committing that every quarter we will publish a newsletter like this one so you know what is going on in your club. But we need a title for the newsletter so why not email us at with your suggestions for the Carlow LTC newsletter Title.

Our new website has specific member only area. These are webpages that only registered members of Carlow LTC can access. Here you will find such pages as the above mentioned court booking, a “Find a Member” section, you can look up other club members to get contact details. You must be registered on the website to use these pages so please ensure that we have your email address. If your unsure please email and we will send you back details.

Another item we have introduced into the club to make your experience a better one is a free WiFi zone in the club house.  You can now finish that presentation, check you email or just browse while you wait for your game. For access ask the bar staff.

To paraphrase “we’ve lots done…but lots more to do” so keep an eye on our website for regular updates on 

Your club, Your way, proud to be a member
