Booking is now open for the Ladies' Spring Tournament on Friday 13th May at 9.00am, kindly organised by our present cup-holders Feena Graham and Cherry Hughes. Please join us for a 'no fears', fun event open to all lady members, and raise money for charity too.

Tennis will start at 9.00 am. with a break for coffee and a delicious lunch at about noon. Entry is just £5 - with the added incentive that you will not have to organise the next tournament if you win!

To book: Check out the website. You need to go into Classes/Events and look for Ladies Spring Tournament, 13th May. (You may need to 'select event type' from top line).

There will also be a very special raffle in aid of The Lullaby Trust who support research and families of babies and small children who have sadly experienced Sudden Cot Death syndrome. This is a cause close to Cherry's heart and many of us know somebody who has been affected.
Many thanks for all my birthday wishes last couple weeks. Celebrations are on-going! I never realised how kind you all are!!! 
Don't forget you can buy tubes of balls behind the bar.. Only a fiver! 
Forgot to mention Carmen & Jo winning in the Grace finals... Combined age 149 years old.... Ridiculously amazing!!! 
AGM last night... Congratulations to Tricia, James and other board members for the work and commitment they have given to the club. We mustn't forget that positions at the club are voluntary. We may not always agree with decisions, but huge respect to everyone that gives up their valuable time for our club. We appreciate.... Thank You!
