November 2018 Newsletter
The new artificial grass courts are now ready. The feedback we’ve had has been extremely positive. They play really well and feel great under foot. If you haven’t tried them yet book a court now and let us know what you think.
October Half Term Tournament
What a success!! Huge thanks to Jill Shelvey who was the tournament referee and was in attendance all day every day! Thanks to Sarah Wright for organising the U9’s and doubles events so efficiently and thank you to the club members who volunteered their time to act as court supervisors or officials at the desk. Their contribution makes such a positive difference to the event (Val Kirkham, Linda Brentnall, Elaine Masters, Penny Richardson, Margaret Fincham, Sue Reesby, Alan Philpott and David Carter.)
The bar was the busiest it’s ever been for the October tournament and the staff provided an excellent service to members and visitors to the club.
We need your help?
Would any members be interested in helping our young players learn to compete and run occasional competitions for them?
Come and chat to us if you feel you could help in some small way.
