Secretary's Report 2009-10
Membership
At the end of this season we have 23 active members, up by one from last year.  On this measure the club is the same size as last season. 
Recruitment and Publicity
Anyone in the Swindon area, who wants to play, can find us via the Internet. There is probably no other reliable way of finding us. I get a steady trickle of emails, via the web site, plus a few phone calls, from people expressing interest in playing.  Best as I can tell fewer than half of those ever turn up at the Lime Kiln.
The site gets about 800 visitors per month (up from 700 last year). They see about 17,000 pages/month (up on last year’s 15,000).  The forums are the most read pages by over 4:1.  I expect most of that will be from the members and our huge fan base.
Wiltshire Leagues
We registered six players for the Aces Team in the Premier Division - the minimum we can get away with. We registered 18 (22 last year) players for the Bees in Division 1. We were able to run the 'B' team without sharing players with the 'A' team. However we did have some surprising instances when we struggled to get a team we did not have to concede any matches.
Lime Kiln Centre Facilities
This season we trained the Link Kiln Centre staff to assemble the Volleyball equipment. Now they set up the court ready for our training sessions and they dismantle it afterwards.
The centre’s staff has been good to us this year. There have been a couple of instances where our matches have overrun the official 10.00pm end of our session. On both occasions they happily stayed behind until we had finished.
