Welcome to Kenton Lawn Tennis Club
Welcome to Kenton Lawn Tennis Club
Kenton Lawn Tennis Club is reopening.
COVID 19 Update as of 24th May .
As you will have seen from government announcements it will be permissable to play tennis from 13th May. Whilst this is excellent news for all desperate to return the club does need to proceed cautiously . The risk assessment to play is a decision you need to make and be responsible for individually - the tennis club cannot make guarentees or commitments. We trust all members will behave responsibly and anyone playing is required to read and accept the rules set out below.
Keeping active and supporting St Luke's Hospice 2.6 challenge during lockdown
Update as of May 2nd 2020
A big thank you to all our members and friends who have participated in or donated to our “2.6” challenge to support St Luke’s hospice over the last week. We’ve smashed our 26 * £26 target and now raised over £1200 (including gift aid). St Luke’s are very appreciative of our efforts.
The imagination, agility and generosity of everyone was fantastic and the pictures and videos kept us all entertained on the “Let’s Play Tennis” What’s App channel. Here’s a selection of what people did whilst conforming to social distancing guidelines:
- Walked/ran/cycled variants of 2.6/26 minutes/km/miles indoors and outdoors ... and good luck to Chris B who is hoping to complete 26km’s of rowing this weekend
- 26 juggles, skips (backwards), rolls, cartwheels, backflips, press ups, pull ups, bench pushes, jumps, squats and dolphins
- 26 seconds of handstands, planks and the “bridge”
- 26 prayers and 26 minutes of silence
- 26 minute waltzes
- 2.6 hours of grass cutting, 26 fence panels painted, 260 weeds removed and 260 bricks moved
- Sports medleys of golf, darts, table tennis, basket ball – plus a few tennis tricks thrown in of course (or hat-tricks in Nick’s case)
Special calls out to Chris S who has raised the most money so far through 26 hours of (almost!) not swearing, and to Mena’s triplets, the Aulnettes and the Bignones for the most inventive and talented household contributions (sorry Pilides – you don’t count as you are isolating apart). And a passing mention to the cat, jacuzzi and Superman for their cameo video appearances.
Our just giving site is still open if anyone else wants to make a contribution:
