CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS 2018
The club champs are changing!! The annual club tournament will be held this year over a 4 week period starting on 23rd April running through to finals day on Saturday 19th May. We hope this new format will prove popular and help to reduce the amount of matches that are cancelled each year. Specific court times will be designated throughout the 4 weeks and we hope as many members as possible will get involved. The usual events will be running including all Open, Handicap and Vets. The Junior and Mini Championship finals will be on Sunday 8th July so SAVE THE DATE!
We also have a charity event running in conjunction with the finals. Sarah Wright will be attempting to play 24 hours of non stop tennis finishing at midday on Finals day. We are supporting our local Rainbows charity with this event. Lets see if we can help raise plenty of funds to support this fantastic charity. More details coming soon of how to get involved.
