Tennis Twitterings – November 2017
It May be Dark, Wet and Cold – but Tennis Stalwarts (?) Play On.
Most people would assume (not without good reason) that as the nights get darker, colder and wetter, that tennis players hang up their rackets, put their head bands on a cold wash and take time to whiten their plimsolls. How wrong they would be!
Those of us who are strong of heart, resolute of purpose and thick of head still continue in our pursuit of excellence, regardless of the futility of our endeavours. If you would like to ‘enjoy’ a regular knock then the following sessions are taking place throughout the winter and you are welcome to join us;
- Ladies; 6:30 – 8:00pm
- Gents; Tuesdays; 6:00 – 8:00pm
- Mixed Social; Saturdays 2:30 – 4:00pm.
Hope to see you there and don’t forget to wrap up warm!
2018 – The Planning Starts NOW.
It may surprise you to learn that your tennis committee are not sitting back, sipping tea and reflecting that the older we get the better we were (not all of us anyway), but planning for activities, improvement and progress in 2018.
This includes the upskilling of our coaches Paul and Dan to provide regular sessions aimed at improving our match play. Family focussed events to encourage Members and their family to enjoy a game on our courts and regular Section competitions to give all members the opportunity to take on the ‘better’ players, prove their worth and pick up a trophy.
Our programme of events kicks off early in January and meetings with our coaches have already taken place to organise an Open Doubles Competition. Details will be provided in our December Twitter and also on…………………..
We now have our own website which contains information about our activities and events. This is your ‘mouthpiece’ so if you have something to say why not use it? So take a look by logging on to;
