SOCIAL & TENNIS EVENTS
We have organised a social diary for the year, it would be lovely to see you at all/some of the events, new members would be particularly welcome. If anyone has any suggestions please email Elizabeth Laurent at [email protected]
More details of each event will follow in due course:
Finals weekend, with BBQ on Sunday
SATURDAY 4th - SUNDAY 5th SEPTEMBER
The various rounds of the championships take place throughout the summer season, culminating in the finals being played over this weekend. It is our biggest event of the year and is always well attended, so please do come along and support the players, watch some great tennis, socialise, meet new members – generally have a wonderful time!
On Saturday there will be tea, coffee, rolls and cake for lunch. and on Sunday a BBQ is planned from approximately 2pm. The bar will of course be open throughout both days.
So that we can have a rough idea of numbers, if you plan to come to the BBQ please let Elizabeth Laurent know by email [email protected] or add your name to the list on the noticeboard in the clubhouse by the end of Thursday.
Prize giving will take place mid-afternoon on Sunday once all matches are completed.
It’s a great weekend, fabulous tennis being played and a fun atmosphere. It would lovely to see lots of members there!
Come and support the Kent over 60s team
SUNDAY 12th SEPTEMBER, 1-5pm
The Kent over 60's team will be playing Hertfordshire over 60's at the club. John Watton is captain. It would be fantastic to see some of our members at the club to support John and his team. Please put the date in your diary.
SATURDAY 18th SEPTEMBER, 9am start
To help keep running costs of the club down we welcome all volunteers. We all 'muck in' and you can meet old and new friends. Whether you're a keen D.I.Y.er or a Professional Bodger we have small jobs for everyone, such as weeding, painting and hedge trimming (to name but a few) in order to keep the Clubhouse and Grounds in a good state of repair.
If you are able to come along and help please could you contact David Paine.
Please bring with you your own work gloves. We are particularly interested in anyone who has a tow bar as one of the jobs will be emptying the trailer at the back of the clubhouse to the nearest bottle bank.

SUNDAY 12th DECEMBER
Each round lasts about 2 months, and each player gets to play all other players in the same division, up to 5 matches per round. At the end of the round, the 2 players who come top in each division gain promotion to the division above, while the 2 players who come last move down to the division below. The box league is a friendly competition intended to encourage members to enjoy singles matches. There are no fees or prizes, and while players are under no obligation to play all their matches, we encourage them to play as many as possible.
