Ashtead 1 - RPRLT 3
An hour's effort to de-ice the Ashtead courts with brooms,hot water and salt was all worthwhile as the 2nd team (Axel,Peter,Anthony and myself) won a closely contested match.

Congratulations to the mens second team who achieved a fine 3-1 victory over Dulwich in their inaugural Home Match on Sunday 20th June.
Mens 1 played St. Pauls away & managed to come away with a 3-1 win. Thanks Jacek for ferrying most of the team to the venue & thank you Steven for being Captain for the day. Well done all!
Dishan & David were the rest of the team, they obviously don't need me.
The next open day will be on the first Sunday in September, from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm. Anyone who may be interested in joining the Tennis Club is welcome to come along. Bring a racquet and suitable tennis shoes, and you are welcome to have a game, with no obligation.
Following the granting of planning permission for the redevelopment of the LESSA sports ground, in October 2009, the site has recently been sold to Bellways. It is understood that it is Bellways intention to implement the scheme which has been granted permission, and to respect the obligations which were entered into by the previous owners. These obligations include the offer of new tennis facilities to the Raynes Park Tennis Club, including 5 new tennis courts, and a new clubhouse. Over the coming months the club will be considering the pros and cons of a move and will be seeking the views of Club members.
More information will be posted here and in the newsletter as it becomes available.
