Sonning members don their whites for Wooden Racquet Tournament

18 members donned their "Winbledon whites" for the club's Wooden Racquet tournament, which was played in glorious sunshine on Sunday 12th May.

Using a range of wooden racquets from members' lofts, refurbished from online purchases and some from the clubhouse walls, everyone stepped back to a bygone era of tennis with a lot less topspin to try their hand.

The round robin format gave everyone a range of partners and opponents, with Jenny McCaffrey the runaway winner, dropping just 2 games out of the 28 she played with 7 different partners.

Everyone enjoyed a fun morning of social tennis - unfortunately the promised strawberries didn;t make it after a hot weekend and all the shops sold out, but hopefully the scones, jam and cream made up for it.

Look out for the next club competition - our early summer American Tournament on Sunday 2nd June
