Tennis Twitterings Week 8

Captains Reports;

Ladies A Team; This week we played one of our strongest competitors, Cressington.  Due to injuries we changed the line-up, which in hindsight might have been a mistake!  We managed a draw, but the 3rd couple almost beat the 2nd couple, but just lost in a close Super tie break, so close!

Men’s A Team; Despite pulling out all of the stops we slipped to a disappointing defeat at top of the league Eccleston Park, but are now focussing on our local derby at Mossley Hill next week.

Men’s B Team; No game as David Lloyd have withdrawn.

Men’s C Team; Playing on Friday. Last week’s defeat to East Wavertree was a debacle due to the 50mph gales that hampered both sides and provided a few unique moments of tennis drama with subtle lobs changing direction frequently and mis-hit shots becoming clever winners. We could have earned a few bob with Harry Hill if we would have had our cameras with us.

Next Week’s Fixtures:

  • Ladies A Team; Tuesday 20th June – Away v Blundellsands ‘A’
  • Ladies B Team; Tuesday 20th June – Home v Widnes ‘B’
  • Men’s A Team; Monday 19th June – Home v Mossley Hill ‘A’
  • Men’s B Team; Tuesday 20th June - Away v Mossley Hill ‘B’
  • Men’s C Team: Tuesday 20th June – Home v Action’


Please check and confirm arrangements with team captains.


J Family Tennis Festival: Saturday 1st July from 2-5pm.

The FTF will take place on Saturday 1st July between 2 and 5pm. It is open to all Club members, their family and friends. A strawberry cream tea will be served in the pavilion after the session and the tennis section will cover all of the costs incurred.  It is hoped that all tennis section members will promote this event and hopefully we will recruit much needed new playing members. The following activities will be available;

  • Coaching provided by Club coach Paul Freeman and team member Dan Pritchard.
  • Junior activities using smaller nets on the grass courts.
  • Social Tennis


J Lost on Court (Aren’t we all?).

Our second team ‘substitute ‘captain Alan Davies appears to have misplaced his

racket on the astro courts recently and could do with assistance in recovering it.

Despite early reports that it was a Dunlop Maxply (see photo), it would appear that

it may have been a red ‘Head’ racket.
