Now the World Cup and Wimbledon have concluded, there's no longer any exciting sport to tempt to you stay at home with the telly instead of getting out and on court for social tennis! As an added bonus, Saturday 28th July will also be our Summer Social Barbecuefor all members and their guests. Barbecue items will be provided, please bring along a side, salad or cake if you are able. As usual, it is BYO drinks. 🍻🍷 Social tennis will start at 2pm and the barbecue will run all afternoon.
From 28th July and all through August, we will be running longer weekend social sessions with players from nearby Wilton LTC joining in from 3pm while their courts are refurbished. Since the barbecue is the first joint session with Wilton it should be a lovely afternoon of tennis and the chance to meet some new players. Please do come along and join in regardless of your playing standard.
If you opted-in to the LTA Club ballot then come along on Sunday 29th April to find out if you have won the chance to buy some great tickets. You do not need to be present to win but those winners in attendance will have first choice of the available tickets. Other winners will be contacted via email afterwards. The first name will be drawn from the hat at 4pm, all are welcome, and the Club will be laying on refreshments to make the afternoon a properly social occasion.
At 2pm on the same day, Senior Members are invited to play in a fun tournament. We will be using a new format called "Davis Cup" where two teams battle it out over the course of multiple matches. This format should provide an enjoyable afternoon for all standards of play, so please come along and have fun whether you are a relatively recent player who has never been to a Club Social, or someone who represents the Club in team matches.
All are warmly invited to visit our club on Sunday 9th July between 1 and 4pm.
