Welcome to Kenton Lawn Tennis Club

Latest news

 

Despite a petition and lobbying by the LTA , it is confirmed that  all tennis is now stopped as part of the government lockdown measures until at least December 2nd . Our courts and club  are now closed and all matches are postponed. 

 

Our tennis AGM is due before the end of the year. More details will follow nearer the time but as meeting  in person is not possible we'll do this via zoom. 

 

Stay safe everybody and hopefully  we'll be back on court before Christmas.

As you will propbably be aware , we have had some coaching challenges in recent months  with James resigning during lockdown and his replacement Kingsley being unable to start work due to a back injury. Kingsley has subsequently resigned as this injury means he will be unable to coach for a period of 6 - 9 months. We are very grateful to Justin for stepping up and delivering all the coaching at the club over the few  months . 

 

As a committee we have been looking at different options and have reached a conclusion after discussions with James . James  resigned to pursue an alternative career in IT programming which is going  well but, in addition, is maintaining some coaching activity on a part time basis. We have agreed with James that he will take back full management responsibilities for the coaching programme and also conduct limited number of mainly group lessons himself. ( ie with a  time commitment that is compatible with his new career), working with Justin who will continue to play a big part in delivering the coaching.  Going forward you should contact  James  for all coaching enquiries  you can contact James on   07852180905    Details of the coaching can be found through this link .   https://ignitetennis.co.uk/junior-courses/      Welcome back James . 

 

We are delighted to have completed our Club Tournaments,  resumed competitive inter-club league  tennis and welcomed lots of new members since lock-down, but are also very mindful of the need to remain vigilant and operate within government and LTA Covid-19 guidelines.   All members and guests are required to follow track and trace procedures when visiting the club.  We have our own QR code that is on the shed.  If you have the NHS tracking app please scan this every time you come to the club – it’s very quick and simple to do.  If you don’t have the app a book will attached to the shed: please write your name and the date/time in that.

On Saturday September 26th we held  our delayed 2020 Finals Day.  Overall we had 23 finals and 62 trophies and medals to give out.  The matches started at 10am and finished at 8pm with sunshine, wind and a little rain, adding an extra dimension to proceedings but the quality of the tennis still shone through.   Thanks to everyone who has helped organise the tournaments and all the players who have hopefully enjoyed the 175+ matches that have been played.   We were pleased that this year BLJ Law (see https://bljlaw.co.uk/) made a very generous donation towards the costs of the trophies we awared.

As we couldn’t hold the traditional evening presentation and not everyone could be there to watch we thought our members would appreciate this record of events.  Read the link to see who got all the silverware….. Finals Day results

Key dates

Our annual Martin Galvin American Tournament will be played on Sunday November 29th at  2pm.   We had planned to hold our A. G. M .   immediately after that  tournament but that may need to be changed due to Covid-19 regulations. 


Social Tennis

Our social tennis times - when all players mix in - are every Wednesday evening 7pm till 9.30pm and  Sunday afternoons  3pm to 6pm.    In October and November every Sunday will be a "managed social" with a committee member organising play to ensure balanced games
