Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Mens Doubles Final could not happen on Finals' Day so it was played on a grey and blustery October day. Nev & Warren won the day 6-0 6-4 against James & Ryan. Congratulations to all players for some fantastic tennis!
Our Winter Doubles competitions are now underway, as well as our 2020 Singles Championships. The Singles finals will be played on Saturday 28th November. While sanctioned tournaments may continue in High COVID risk conditions, spectators are only permitted when the COVID risk is Medium.
Our first three Pop-up Café events proved to be hugely popular. Donations and proceeds from the sale of refreshments, homemade cakes, candles, jams and other donated items exceeded £390 for Macmillan Cancer Support! Many thanks to everyone who has donated or attended, with particular gratitude to the bakers who supplied amazing home-baked goodies.
Unfortunately due to London moving into High Risk COVID-19 restrictions from Saturday morning, the remaining Pop-up Charity Café dates will have to be cancelled. Tennis activities such as club and coaching sessions will continue as planned. Members can read the latest LTA advice at https://lta.org.uk/coronavirus.
To raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, we will be hosting a Pop-up Charity Café and Homemade Goodies Shop at a number of Club Social sessions throughout October (full list of dates below). There will be tea, cafetière coffee and sweet treats available, as well as home-made items to buy (including candles, jam and face masks) with all the proceeds going to Macmillan. Donations can be made via cash or directly to Macmillan on your smartphone.
Saturday 10th – there will also be coach-led social!
Please note that the pop-up café will be qualify as a hospitality venue for the purposes of COVID regulations. Please bring a mask, and signing in, via NHS App or paper guest book, will be mandatory.
