News & Events 26th October 2018

With one match to go to the Play off stages of the Floodlight League, our teams are very well placed to feature. All four Ladies teams won this week – with one out of the two Men’s teams winning. Our Ladies 1st and 2nd teams top their section, with the 3rd team midway and the 4th team struggling a little bit. On the Men’s side the 1st team top their section, with the 2nd team struggling. So all to play for this coming week. Apologies to those who have a regular game on courts 4, 5 & 6 between 7 – 9pm next Wednesday, because of Bank Holiday Monday the Men will be playing on Wednesday night next. Even if any of the teams reach the playoffs, there will be no matches on Monday and Tuesday, the 5th & 6th Nov, so courts will be free to book.

The sign-up sheet for the Autumn Tennis tournament is on the Notice board, it runs for two Sunday mornings (4th & 11th November), with time to be confirmed.

Ladies Morning: The Ladies Morning committee (Sarah Jane, Helen, Anne & Caroline) ran a super Halloween tournament last Wednesday with a record 46 ladies playing. They decorated the function room and oh what goodies were on show to be eaten! There were three sections and everyone had a fab morning. Particularly good to see so many of our newish members taking part, plenty of tennis, fun and chat! Well done and thanks to the Committee!
