Sunday July 21st Friendly Club Tournament followed by Lunch at Christine's house @ Faulkland
A good turnout for the tournament using all 4 courts outdoors on a sunny Sunday just dodging a shower. Each match played as a Championship tie break with continuous play. A tally of points at the end lead to the 2 highest scorers as the winners. Well done to Sam Perryman and Rachel Gibbs.
Lunch was a joint effort as members brought the lovely salads to go with burgers, sausages and quiche. 25 attended and gathered under the cherry tree in the garden for a friendly get together.

Quiz Night with Supper March 20th 7-10pm- open to members and families
This was the first time an event was organised outside the tennis courts. The first to help celebrate 10 years of the Indoor Facility. Christine (current chair) organised this with the help of some members on the night. Jeff (Christine's husband) was our quiz master. A hot supper was served beforehand and a bar available, with cake, cheese and fruit served at half time. 8 teams of 4 entered and the winners (Baldwin family) took home a bottle. Great Fun was had by all.
2018 Closed Club Championships
With the keenly contested rounds all completed during September our 9th Annual Club Championships Finals Day rounded off the month on the last Sunday . And with the Writhlington Junior Championships finals running alongside as well we had players in action from 13 to 65! The centre saw action on court all the way through from 10am to 4pm with some fantastic matches and brilliant tennis, all were overseen by Patrick Lodge, who continued to do his great job in the role of Championships umpire.
A good group of specatators started to gather in the centre as the first matches progressed, giving a great atmosphere throughout the day. The young players in the Junior Finals were defintely not to be outdone bythe adults either and provided some really impressive tennis, with Sam Perryman pulling off a remarkable hat-trick for the day!
The finals match were rounded off with the ever popular 'Coaches Exhibition match' before Afternoon Tea was served, another great spread of sandwiches and cakes, organised by Chris Hunt and generously donated by various members. Whilst seconds of cake were polished off, the champions and runners-up were presented with their awards, whilst a few other unsuspecting members were also rightly recognised for their contribution to the Club.
Alan Gammon was our very deserving 'Club Member of the Year' for 2018, whilst Pat Lodge was 'Volunteer of the Year' for his unstinting contribution to the club and the Club Champs in particular.
Thank you to all those who came along to support, who entertained us with their tennis on court and who helped organise, set-up and clear up on the day, committee and members alike. The whole day had a lovely atmosphere and great Club feel as always and could not take place without a fantastic team effort from the members.

We offer a range of memberships that are available to players aged 14 and over. Our membership prices reflect that fact that members do not have access to courts outside club activities without an additional Leisure Centre membership. However we think that the range of club activities available to our members represent great value for money.
