Hi all

Quorn Family Tennis Cup 2017:

Congratulations to Rob and Daisy Rowland who won the red ball event at the prestigious AEGON International Eastbourne.  This is a wonderful achievement and really puts Shooters Hill LTC on the tennis map!  I hope you like the photo of the trophy!

 

Results:

North Kent Ladies 1 beat Blackheath (massive win against one of our local rivals!)
North Kent Men's 1 lost to Bexley
North Kent Mixed 1 beat Bromley LTC

Kent Ladies 1 lost to Parklangley
Kent Mixed 1 beat Bromley CC
Kent Men's 3 beat South Hill Woods TC

AEGON Boys 16&U lost to Bexley
AEGON Girls 16&U postponed
AEGON Boys 12&U lost to Old Wilsonians
AEGON Mixed 10&U lost to Old Wilsonians
AEGON Boys 9&U A Team beat Ladywell Fields
AEGON Boys 9&U B Team beat Old Wilsonians

 

This means our mini orange A team won their division, with our B team coming second!  Well done Captain Dan House and the boys!

I will finalise the positions soon as I believe we will have won some more junior divisions!

 

Well done to all players who represented the club.  That should be it now for the junior summer fixtures, which will ease the pressure on court usage.  A few midweek fixtures this week and some over the weekend.  Good luck to all players!

 

June American Tournament:

Well done to Phil Smith and Ruthie Frost for winning the June AT.  It was a good turnout and the standard of play was first class. Thanks to Club Chairman John Ratcliffe for stepping in and doing a wonderful job of running the day.  I hope you like the photos!

Looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday for our club singles tournament.

Many thanks,

Club Captain

Phil Layfield.

The club is collecting old used tennis balls so could people not throw them away but give to Phil or Luke.
