A note from our staff member, Beth Jelpke.
“As some of you may have read from my poster, in January I took on the Run EveryDay (red January) challenge for Mind Mental Health. I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who encouraged me, either by donating or by your kind words! I managed to run a total of 105k over the 31 days and raised £500 – the bulk of which came from the members of our amazing club. So a big thank you from me and from all the people all over the country who will benefit from the amazing work of Mind! Beth Jelpke “

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.
