Should also be noted that Keith, Duncan & Ray are the Directors listed at companies house for GB Racketlon Association CIC.
We have also started a fairly new initiative where Keith, Duncan, Ray, George, James & Dan speak monthly via Skype.

f) Regionalisation of the sport (this is linked with the point on membership) - (5 mins)
Use of county structure to start setting up regional community companies (EG is Nottingham Racketlon Association, Kent Racketlon Association, etc). I think this is a good way to start. So each region would effectively act as a local club rather than joining the national body direct. The local clubs then affiliate to the national body.

7. Membership scheme election of sub committee (5 mins)
