We will be holding our Annual General Meeting at 4pm on Sunday 4th March. Please do consider running for a place on the committee to help the club continue to thrive and be a great place for our members to play tennis. To help make the afternoon enjoyable there will be a fun American Social tournament prior to the meeting and then cheese & wine during the meeting.
An American tournament is a fun way to play doubles with a variety of different partners and opponents over the c...ourse of an afternoon. Each player keeps their track of the number of individual games he or she has won in each set and the nominal winner is the person who has won the most games at the end of the day. It is a great introduction to social tennis for newcomers to the club, or those improvers who want to try out their new skills at a club session. For regular club players it is a fun alternative to the usual tennis format.
** 1:30pm start, arrive early to warm up **
