Surrey Tennis have introduced a new Mixed Doubles Team knock-out competition for this winter. In the first round our team of Nicky, Lizanne, Warren and James were drawn away against local rivals David Lloyd Raynes Park B and were very pleased to come away with a convincing and thoroughly deserved 4-0 victory. Congratulations!
Next up is a home tie against also near-by Westside LTC.
We are very proud of the Club’s teams playing in the Surrey League who had an outstanding summer of tennis. Both of our Ladies teams, plus the Mens’ Second and Third teams, won their respective divisions. Congratulations to all who participated, and thank you to the Captains for organising the matches. Best of luck for the forthcoming Winter League.
Congratulations to our two ladies teams who won their respective divisions in the Surrey Winter League. This was a our first season fielding two Ladies teams, so a really great result.
If any member is interesting in playing team matches against other clubs, please speak to a Committee Member.
Congratulations to our First Team Men who finished second in their division of the Winter League, receiving a deserved promotion to the division above for next season. This is their fourth promotion since 2013! Seven players participated in five matches throughout the cold and often windy winter season so do congratulate them when you see them around the club. The seven players are: Warren, Neville, Arunan, Alex, Mike, Axel and Milen.
