Spencer Crest Seeking new Membership Officer

We are seeking to recruit a new Membership Officer - part time, hours flexible. He or she will be a vital part of the team, particularly for our junior programme, responsible for membership and registration including renewals, new and prospective members and junior courses, helping well over 2000 members and volunteers enjoy their sport.

Spencer Crest Sophie leaving

After two and a half years helping us to get some order into our membership systems, Sophie has decided it is time to move on. For many Sophie has been a most visible and welcoming face of the Club, dealing with hundreds of membership and junior course enquiries, then quietly and efficiently doing the admin.

We will very much miss you...but fortunately not just yet. We have until the end of June to celebrate your time with us, thank you for all you have done (and find a suitable successor!)


Spencer Crest New Club Manager

I am delighted to say we are looking forward to welcoming Chris Rowland to Spencer as Club Manager in early May. Chris is joining us from the Hallamshire Tennis and Squash Club in Sheffield where he has been a member of the Management Team.

More details later.


Spencer Crest Welcome

A warm welcome to Paul Johnson, who has joined the grounds team to work with Steve. He is on site weekdays except Monday, when he will be away training; also on Saturday mornings during the cricket season for final pre-match ground preparation.
Spencer Crest Farewell Louis

Congratulations and farewell to Louis Maguire, after five great years with us, as he goes a more senior grounds role elsewhere. A big thank you to Louis who was a key part of the Spencer community, always friendly and helpful.

Spencer Crest Elaine Leaving

There is the prospect of saying farewell to a real friend of Spencer, as Elaine Wishart our Club Manager has decided it is time for her to move on.

Eight years have seen her role evolve unrecognisably as the Club has developed. Elaine's work has been key to that growth and development, sometimes very public but more often quietly unseen, getting things done, making things work and sorting out problems.

Elaine will often use the description 'a real Spencer person' - for someone who understands and contributes to what makes the Club special - and she has been just that herself. Thousands of members, volunteers and their families have benefited from Elaine's energy and commitment; also our neighbours, partners and the wider local community. We all owe her a big debt of gratitude and will miss her enormously.

Elaine says "It is with great sadness that I am resigning my position. I have hugely enjoyed my time at Spencer but it is time for me to move to pastures new and for someone else to take on the exciting challenges the job offers. I hope that all members appreciate the love and regard I have for the Club. I wish Spencer all the best for the future and look forward to always being part of the Spencer family"

Elaine has kindly agreed to stay on into the New Year while the Club looks for a successor and to make the handover as smooth as possible. I am grateful for that, and it will also give us time to arrange a proper celebration of all Elaine has achieved here.
