Great entry for Over 50s Tournament

The weather stayed kind for our Over 50s tournament today. A good entry saw all 5 courts being used and unusually the male entry of 13 was almost double that of the ladies entry of 7 (due to illness and injury 2 ladies had to withdraw on the day). After some excellent play the top scoring man, David Reynolds was partnered with the second placed lady, Suzie Sinclair (who drew on points with Jenny Turner but won her finals place on the toss of a coin!). They took on 2nd place Brett Dye and 1st place Elaine Bassett in the final. The watching spectators were treated to some fantastic rallies and the victors were Suzie Sinclair and David Reynolds winning by 6 games to 2. Thanks go to Lis Jenkin and Brenda Charlton who ran the...

Entry for Club Championships 2017 now open

Due to our Tennis Manager Martin Coates leaving in early September the Club Committee has taken on the role of Club Tournament Organiser. In order to have Club Champions in 2017 at all we have decided to change the format slightly from last year. On a positive note we have reduced the entry fees to £3 per event but, unfortunately, we will have to go without the Over45s Vets Mixed Doubles for 2017. The tournament will be held over ONE WEEK (starting Sunday 17th September) only and please note the tournament schedule. In fairness to the organisers please do not enter the tournament if you are not available on the weekends/evenings stated. Should numbers be so large that the organisers have to amend the schedule we will let you know in good time. An entry form is attached (click here) and there are copies of the entry form in the spinner in the club’s foyer. As always please stick to the closing date and do not enter without payment. Many thanks and good luck with your...
