MEET THE COACH!
Our new coach, Steve Barnett, will be at the Pavilion from 6pm-8pm on Friday 22nd February to meet members and talk about his exciting programme of coaching and events planned for 2019. Wine and cheese will be served.
FUN TENNIS FOR ALL TO END THE YEAR
Members, friends and visitors convened in the lovely Ross Tennis Centre pavilion to enjoy a morning of free tennis, drinks, and great company, on Sunday 30th December.
The players’ ages ranged from 6 years to over 70 years and everyone enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and great tennis, played in a round-robin format. Mulled wine and mince pies were served to those who came to watch, and to those waiting for their turn on the wonderful new courts. Approximately forty people attended the event, which everyone hoped will be repeated next year – thanks to Mike and Ali O’Brien for organising it, and to Rosie Farr for the mulled wine.
CHRISTMAS SOCIAL BASH!
The Centre's pre-Xmas social event was held at Bishopswood Hall on Saturday 8th Dec.
The evening was a huge success, with over 80 people attending. There was a great atmosphere and the hall had been decorated throughout with a Christmassy tennis theme. The food was supplied by the local butcher and delicious puddings were donated by many of the players! What a spread it was.
Our favourite local band, The Forfeits, played some great music and the dance floor was heaving all night. There was some expert dancing from some of the local jivers and a 'not to be missed' exhibition of the "Oops Upside Your Head " floor dance !!
There was a fabulous raffle with lots of tennis-themed prizes, including a year's membership to the club, a signed Judy Murray book , and top quality tennis clothing donated by Lacoste!
Thanks to everyone's support and efforts the event managed to raise over £950! A great first social event for the CIC.
