Sadly the weather got in the way of our matches for the next round of the Triangle Tournament, hosted by the Cricket Club. We are hoping to reschedule and we’ll let you know when we have settled on a date and time for that round of the competition. And please do put Sunday 23rd July in your diaries for the Tennis Club day for hosting the competition with play starting at 2pm until 5pm.
Meanwhile, here’s this week’s news.
Walking Tennis | New from September
Love tennis but looking for a gentler pace of play? Walking Tennis is safe, fun and inclusive. It’s a fantastic way to stay active! It’s a game that’s open to anyone – whether you’re a lifelong tennis player, a complete beginner or just need a bit more time to get into the swing of things, you can give the game a go in a supportive setting. You can play tennis at any age and Walking Tennis offers an easy way for older people to keep their body and mind active – while also enjoying the social side of being part of a tennis community. Please book HERE.
