Our next project – new LED floodlights on courts 4, 5 and 6 – gets a mention in the Echo. After damage occurred recently to the existing lights between courts 4 and 5, those lights have been removed so courts 4 and 5 are safe to play on though with reduced lighting around the net area between these courts. Installation of the new LED floodlights will commence on the Tuesday after the Easter weekend (mid-April). Thanks to Bill and Mark for all their hard work so far on this project.
Southend & District Winter Tournament successes on finals day for Tim Willcock and Gill Sanderson in the Mixed Senior Doubles, plus Jason Watkins with partner Richard (Westcliff Hard) in the Mens Senior Doubles. Commiserations to Dan Thrale who was defending his Mens Open Singles title but lost in a close fought two sets. Congratulations to our winners and thanks to tournament referee Steve for another well organised finals day.
