The regular time for Ladies team practices during the season will be advised. During the winter regular practice sessions are held indoors at the Dan Maskell Tennis Centre on Loughborough University campus.
Ladies Charity Tournament
Each year we hold a Ladies Charity Tournament, usually on a Friday in June.
Any ladies are welcome. There will be a fee for taking part which will cover the cost of the lunch following the tournament plus the contribution to charity.
Players will play in doubles but will compete against each other on an individual basis - aiming to win as many games as possible with different partners and against different opponents. Each round will last about 20 mins. The loosing pair in each round splits and moves to different courts. The winning pair stay on the same court but split and each partner one of the 'loosing players' joining them from the other two courts.
Club Members (including Men) and guests are welcome to join the players for the post tournament lunch.
For players taking part in the tournament the fee will be £10. For those attending the lunch only -the charge will be £8.
