What's on for the new season

On SATURDAY, 7th APRIL we start  off with a tennis get together from 2.00-4.00pm.  Play some tennis, have a chat, table tennis, boules or just watch what’s going on and enjoy home made cakes and tea.

SATURDAY, 12th MAY  it’s the Great British Tennis Weekend from 11.00-1.00pm.  This is a fun time/tennis playing occasion for members and non-members with emphasis on trying to get new members to join.  Please give this date to anyone who might like to join in.

SATURDAY, 23rd JUNE  is Fast Tennis from 11.00-1.00pm where we play tennis with slightly different rules and shorter sets.  So you get to play lots of tennis with different people.

SATURDAY, 14th JULY is an Adult and Child Fun Session/Tournament from 11.00-1.00pm.
This is where an adult partners a child and has lots and lots of fun.  It’s open to members and non-members (free to members, £5 for non-members).  This was cancelled last year as there were not enough entries so please put this date in your diary now and tell your friends.

During the month of SEPTEMBER we are going to run the Club’s Annual Tournament – singles and doubles depending on number of entries.  This is a knock out tournament just like Wimbledon.  FINALS DAY IS SUNDAY, 30TH SEPTEMBER from 10.00am onwards.

I will be organising the tennis events so please put the dates in your diary and I look forward to seeing you there.  The more the merrier.

Latest from the Chair

I hope that we can all look forward to some better weather in the not too distant future!

The events planned for this year at the tennis club are available on the Tournaments & Events Page and I will be looking forward to seeing all of you at some of the events. Please have a look at the events and put the dates in your diaries.

I will be sending out reminders nearer the time.

The committee is trying to secure grants to update the two top courts with an outdoor carpet surface which is called Match Play 2. This surface is softer on the feet,not slippery after frost or rain as is hard wearing and requires little maintenance. Details of the surface can be found on the club notice board.

We are planning to arrange an opportunity to play on the surface at Charmouth tennis club  in the Spring. If anyone is interested in trying out the surface or has any comments to make on the change of surface  please let me know.

See you soon.
Jacky Boothman, Chair
