Morpeth Tennis Club Autumn Social Doubles Tournament - Saturday 9th October 1-5pm

Following on from the successful social doubles tennis tournament held on President's Day in August, we are holding another tournament in the same vein on Saturday 9th October.  As well as providing the opportunity for some light-hearted competition, another aim of this event is to raise funds for the resurfacing of the top courts, as outlined below in the 'Club Development Plans' section, to supplement the awards we have from Suez and NCC.

Entry for the tournament is free, via this entry form, but we would very much appreciate it if you could make a donation to the crowdfunding campaign when it goes live shortly.

Numbers for the tournament are limited to 24, with any entries coming in after all the places are filled going on a reserve list, in case there are drop-outs.

Club Development Plans

Replacing the playing surface on our top three courts is our priority for next season.  This will allow us to host local tournaments, attract more members, offer more courts for public play and benefit our coaching programme.   If we are sucessful with our funding applications, we also hope to improve court access, the environment around the courts and install an automated gate and floodlight management system.   Please read about our development plans and how you can help the club.

Update (20/09/21): the club has received grants from Northumberland County council (£5000) and Suez communities Trust (£50,000) towards this!

Have you left anything at the club?

We've been picking up an increasing amount of clothing, water bottles and other items off the courts lately.  If you think that you have left anything at the club please check the lost property webpage of the MCHTC website.  Here you will be able to claim any piece of property as well as ask the club manager to look out for anything that you may have lost recently.

Morpeth Cricket, Hockey & Tennis Club President's Day & Social Tennis Tournament - Sunday 29th August 1-5pm

As part of the celebrations for President's Day, Morpeth Tennis Club held a fun social tennis tournament, with pairs drawn from a hat competing against each other in 15-minute mini-matches, utilising all six courts.  A handicapping system was in place to level the playing field and yield a nail-biting finale to see which pair would come out on top.

Third place went to the team of Paul Ward and Les Hall, who gleaned 29 games from the nine matches played.  Just two games ahead came the runners-up, Ben Ord and Mike Hildebrand, on 31 games.  Eclipsing everyone, with a hefty 33 games, came the new champions, Paul Johnson and Albert Ball.

Special mentions must go to Paul Ward and his time-keeping helpers for organising the event and ensuring that everything went smoothly.  All the feedback from the event was positive, and it seems that everyone had a great, if tiring, time.  At least the clubhouse was open for recuperative drinks in the aftermath.

Well done to everyone who participated in and supported the tournament, and the general consensus seems to be that we should do it all again before too long.
