COVID 19 – Message from our Chairman

Since the Government’s statement on Monday 16th March, we have reviewed the Clubs activities, and are following Government and LTA guidelines and advice. First Service Cafe will severely restrict its operations with immediate effect. It will remain open for the present but only for Teas, Coffees, Soft Drinks and light refreshments. The bar will be closed this Wed/Thurs/Fri evenings18th – 20th March. After which openings will be further reviewed. Coaching will continue for the present time but all Tournaments and large gatherings for the time being are suspended. Previously planned social events are all postponed and will not take place, we hope to re-schedule them. 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. The Clubhouse and courts will remain open, with cleaning and maintenance enhanced as per advice provided each day. It is currently the intention to keep the clubhouse and courts open for as long as possible, however this could change at any time. We may have to close the clubhouse completely, but hopefully the courts will remain useable for the duration, but even that may change The situation will be monitored regularly in view of changing circumstances. We hope to reopen fully in due course but that could be many months away. Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time. Regards, Trevor Newborn, Chair Penzance Tennis...

Fun evening of Scrabble!

A fun evening of “Scrabble” took place on Friday to help raise more funds for the CRF (court renewal fund). 18 people played two rounds and lots of laughter could be heard around the groups with some “interesting” words! There were clearly some scrabble “experts” who scored incredibly highly and Brett Dye was just pipped to the post by Dave Forrest who was the highest scorer on the night. Thanks to Dawn Roberts for arranging another great social event and £41 was raised for the...

Record Turn Out for Quiz Night!

The clubhouse was packed on Saturday evening, when 20 keen quizzing teams battled it out, with “Penheads on Tour” (Head Coach, Ian, Anna, Carolyn and Alan) narrowly winning against some fierce competition. They each won a beautiful hand turned pen kindly donated by Bill (Dawn Roberts Dad), so thank you for these unique prizes. Our sincere thanks to the Quiz Master Chris Williams for such a fun and varied set of questions that tested everyone! There were over a dozen raffle prizes, all generously donated by members, and it raised £129. Adding this to the entry fees, the total profit for the whole evening came to £355, which has boosted the CRF (Court Renewal Fund) to over the £8k mark! Thanks also to all the volunteers on the night for manning the bar and helping with the setting up to squeeze everyone in! As it was so popular we will organise another quiz night soon, and make sure you enter your team early next time, as we will be limiting the number of entries. A fun evening enjoyed by...
