In accordance with Government and LTA guidelines, the club will be reopening on Monday 29th March.  Singles and doubles are both permitted so please organise your games and use the online booking system as before.  Graham will be coaching from this date, both individual sessions, adult and junior group coaching, plus Easter school holiday camps.  The courts are looking pristine ready for our return and the patio area has been improved to provide more space.  Many thanks to Bill, Mark and Andy for all their hard work at the club during this lockdown.

Halloween coaching fun!

Whilst the Halloween Tournament scheduled for Saturday 31st October had to be cancelled due to bad weather, the usual Saturday morning coaching went ahead. The juniors entered into the spirit of Halloween as did Martin pictured here with Konrad aged 8 in full fancy dress! The photo came from Konrad’s mum with a message “Thank you for a great and fun morning! Martin and the crew have been great today, as always. Best regards to all the coaches.”

After six rounds luckily with no rain interruptions, our American Tournament winners were Caroline Gaitley and Chris Rackham. Congratulations to both! We were pleased to welcome Deb Saund’s husband Paul and brother-in-law Dave to the club to present the trophies. Caroline received the new Deb Saund Memorial Trophy from Paul whilst Chris received the Beresford Marshall Memorial Trophy from Dave.  Many thanks to Steve for organising the tournament and Hazel for making tea for the players at the end. Also thanks to Andy for opening the bar. Good to see so many new members playing in their first tournament at the club.
