NEW – summer doubles ladder – sign up now!

NEW – summer doubles ladder! Sign up now! Due to the cancellation of the Summer Team League Competition we’re considering running a Summer Doubles League for members. The league would run for 12 weeks and follow a similar format to our popular Winter Singles League. You will be scheduled an opponent every week and you will move up or down the ladder depending upon your results. It will be open to all adult members so men’s pairs, mixed pairs and women’s pairs will be playing against each other. It will cost £10 per player (i.e £20 per pair). You can only enter once. If this is something you would be interested in please email ian.vidgen@hotmail.co.uk. We will only run this event if we have enough interest from the members.

These are The Race Night 4 April, the Quiz Night 18 April and the Spring Fayre 2 May.  However, the 50/50 Club will still start on 1 April with all entries to be at the tennis club by 31 March, and maybe YOU will be the first winner.  If you want to enter and can’t get to the tennis club, you can mail your cheque to the club, or contact Tricia Smith on 01736 367087, or email triciasmith39@hotmail.com.
