I've been rolling this idea around in my head and I think it may be very beneficial for the forum and members of clubs alike, but I'd like some feedback from as many existing members as possible. As the title suggests, the idea is to have a section or sub-forum dedicated to TT clubs news from around the world. I'd envisage each club (or a member of a club) that wants to would have a thread in the section which would have the clubs name and country/location as its title.

We could have a "first post template" to have some standard information about the club like how many members it has, what competitions it runs and when, club contact information, a link to the clubs website if there is one, what fees are paid to play there.... in other words a club profile! Then members of the forum who are members of the club could post to indicate they are members if they wish (which may get some members together for a hit if they didn't realise they both belonged to the same club). Members of the forum could get an idea when they travel of what a club is like and who to contact (either at the club or on the forum) to get a hit there.

In addition to this then the clubs members can update the forum members on news about what is going on at their club, have members asks questions and generally share ideas across clubs. I know at my own club I am not always aware of some of the things that are going on and this may provide an avenue of information that was previously not there.

Obviously for this to work, we would need some members to stick their hand up to begin with and say "yep, I'd be happy to start a thread on that for my club cos I think it would be valuable". Obviously the more club threads we have running, and the more regularly they get updated, the more interesting it would be. But even if we just had an initial template on some clubs and some that were updating here and there, I still think it would be good information and could even tie in somewhat with the map of clubs worldwide thread we have here.

So, if having read this, you have any ideas, questions, or feelings you'd like to express about the idea, please make a post about it here. ;) :up:

I quite like the idea, and will certainly list my club!

It would also be an opportunity to for people to promote their own club. The first post could contain club information, and any members here that belong to the club (if they wish to be listed). This would give them a contact person if they want to play at the club as well.

Excellent MM, I'll count you in! :up: :rock:

Any other takers? Don't be afraid, it will be up to you as to how much or how little you contribute.

Good stuff debater. We might get this off the ground yet! ;) Can't hurt a club to have it presence felt out in the world surely?

I constructed a web site for one of the clubs I played, upon request from other members. It was done sometime ago and I have not done any update since. May be you would find it interesting the way we played TT with fun here. :oops:
