April Newsletter   

The sun is shining and the forecast is looking a lot better than last week. Tennis, perhaps?  

There are still places for Pawel's Easter Tennis Camps which starts on Monday(tomorrow). The camps are held in the morning each day. Contact Pawel by phoning 07929 241364 for further information.   


The good news is that we have water back in the Clubhouse. The toilets and the kitchen are all available. Thanks to Clive for fault finding and arranging for the plumber to fix our leak. It's great everything is back to normal.   

Here is a round up of tennis activities for the month of April.   

Saturday Social - Saturday 13 April, 1.30pm. - Aiming to have a Saturday social before several members leave for Portugal on April 20th. It was great to see so many at the March Social so I'm hoping for good numbers this Saturday. Sign up using SPOND.  

North East Tennis Leagues  - Matches start April 16/April 17.  

I can't believe that the North East tennis leagues will commence on Tuesday 16th (Mens) and Wednesday 17th (Ladies).  We have 4 men's teams and 3 ladies' teams. There's barely been any practice time due to the poor weather, however we are hoping that we can have a Mens' practice this Tuesday evening from 6.30pm and a ladies practice on Wednesday evening. The ladies also practice on a Saturday morning from 10am.   

Pawel's Junior classes   

Pawel's weekly classes start on Monday 15th April. For further information and sign up contact Pawel or click the link to register. Pawel's coaching 

Membership drive   

Every year, we aim to encourage new members to our club. This year is no different, we will be trying to promote the club in a variety of ways and during April we will be involved in two sessions  

Open afternoon - Saturday 20 April from 1.30pm. We are inviting members and non-members to join us for a family fun session.  Bring along a friend or family to join us.  

Community Involvement -  Friday 26 April  7.15pm . We will be providing fun sessions for local community organisations with Pawel leading these. Our local scouts will be the first group to have a session. Throughout the year we will be having one off sessions which may impact on the occasional social evening.     

Adult members coaching - Tennis Xpress - Sunday 28 April - 10am  

These free sessions are available for new members or those that have joined in the last couple of years, starting on Sunday 28th April. This will run for a four-week block with our club coach on a Sunday morning. Each session lasts an hour and aims to benefit your tennis.  

Tennis Holiday (April 21st - April 28th) - Several members are heading to Portugal for a week of tennis coaching and relaxation in Portugal. Let's hope they have a wonderful time and enjoy their week away in sunny Portugal. Thanks to Nadia and Emma for organising this.   

Box Leagues - I will be organising new Box Leagues for the month of April and May this week. If you're new to Box Leagues it an opportunity to play matches against other members and if you're new to the club meet other members. If you require further information, please email me.  

All in one Tennis Fun - Thursdays 6.30pm. We are encouraging members to attend Pawel's All in One Tennis session on Thursday. £5 per session. Sign up on SPOND, weather dependent!!!    

Adult Coaching  - Individual and Group   

Individual coaching is available from Pawel. However, you might prefer a  group coaching session for up to 4 people. I'm sure it will improve your game.   Contact Pawel for further details.  

Social play   

There are plenty of opportunities for competitive play, however if you want a more relaxed option head to our social sessions on Sunday afternoons 2pm, Monday evenings 6.30pm or Wednesday mornings 10am.   

There are lots of opportunities for you to enjoy structured sessions but of course you can use the website to book your own court. Let's get our tennis season started and enjoy the great setting we have for our courts.   

I will be sending another email updating you with other information later in the week.
