American Tournament and Wimbledon Draw:

Well done to Tracy Davy and Mark Jenkinson for winning our April American Tournament on Sunday.  I hope you won tickets for Wimbledon?  Thanks to Caroline Ratcliffe for organising the draw.  Not an easy job!


Mixed Doubles Tournament Sunday 1st May:

So far we have 16 pairs for our mixed doubles tournament on Sunday.  This is a club record!  Luke and I are looking forward to seeing you all then.  Please note, even if you cannot play on Sunday, we would love to see you at some point during the day and the members competing would love the support.


Regional Award Presentation Saturday 14th May:

Hopefully you have all heard the wonderful news that we have won the Regional Award for Club of the Year 2016!  This is an amazing achievement for the club and highlights all the good work which takes place within the club.  However, we could not have won this award without all our fantastic members, so the club would like to invite you all to celebrate with us in receiving this award.  You are all invited to come along to the club on Saturday 14th May at 10am to take part in the presentation.  The new decking will be finished by then and we can all celebrate on the new viewing gallery!  We all look forward to seeing you then.


Many thanks,

Club Captain

Phil Layfield.
