Club Championships 2020
Sun, 23 Aug 2020 00:00
Riseley Tennis Club happily managed to find a dry day to complete our annual Club Championships competition on 22 August. With a pause in our competitive leagues, the event was extremely well supported with many players from all categories entering to compete for the various titles up for grabs.
With the sun shining, and being fortunate enough to be surrounded by fields, spectators were able to attend and create a wonderful atmosphere whilst protecting one another with sensible social distancing. Supporters sat on picnic blankets and chairs and cheered/ jeered from the sides, ensuring the players had some palpable support and pressure to contend with. By the end, the winners had won, the losers had lost and some of us were held together by sports tape.
