PREVIOUS EVENTS:

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.

Sunday 12 May 2019 OPEN MORNING

Our Sunday Club Session was advertised as an Open Morning. We had several players turn up to try our indoor and outdoor courts. Thank you to members who joined in too.

New memebrs: Please feel free to come along for a taster session on any club session Sunday 10-12 and Tuesdays 8-10pm. (check website diary for any changes)

Sunday Tournament April 7th 3-6pm.  Open to ALL Members. American Doubles Format. 

A fantastic turnout of 25 members for a 'Clothes Peg' Format of doubles with  competitive tennis in a friendly atmosphere allowing chance to socialise as your turn came to stand out and enjoy tea and flapjack or biscuits. Everyone played 5 matches with different partners using a short set format (first to 4 games) with the 4 highest scorers playing a short final match as a championship tie break.

Congratulations to Janie Bullus and Margie Christison who won 10-7 in a close fought final against Ray Clarke and Tina Lindley. The winner received a tube of tennis balls each for their efforts.

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.

 

Winter Mixed Leagues 2018/19

Memberships

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.
