GLTC Newsletter August 2020

Dear Members

Just as our 2020 Tournament is about to begin this month, so too do all the rain showers.  So we are in good company, remembering some of the Wimbledon downpours in the past!

Club Tournament 2020
We cannot begin this year's tournament without a special 'Well Done' to some of our mpst talented and prolific club players from previous tournaments, Liz, Judith and Barry.  Well Done!

Please do sign up for the Club Tournament at [email protected].  As usual we will be contesting

  • Ladies and Men's Singles
  • Ladies & Men's Doubles
  • Mixed Doubles

Please let us know your 'double', if you would like to play and are not in a pair, we can pair you up so no excuse!

Sign up by 28 August please.

We will be running a play 'deadline' this year with the final being contested by 31 October, possibly with a Halloween SD BBQ, guidelines permitting!

All winners will receive a bottle of bubbly or chocolates of your choice!  Good Luck.
