A good turnout for Tuesday social tennis.
Social tennis evenings have been taking place on Tuesday evenings for a while now and are proving to be very popular & well attended. Thanks to some good weather we have been able to get a good mixture of ladies, mens and mixed doubles as well as some singles matches. We will be keeping going as long as the weather holds out so why not come along and join in.
The pony race night back in June was a fun night & raised £474 towards club funds. Many thanks to everyone who was involved & hopefully more people can make it along to any future events.
Wendy has arranged Summer Coaching Camps – please go to the coaching page on the website for further information.
We hope everyone is coming along to our fun pony racing night on the 8th June, at the Police Club, 28 York Place. It should be a fun packed night, an interactive event where you can own or jockey a pony & win great prizes. The racing starts at 8pm so be there at 7:30 sharp. Tickets are only £5 and the venue is nice & central and drinks prices are very reasonable. Last orders is 12:30 & there will be some music & dancing for those that want after the racing. So come along & bring as many friends as possible – all money raised will be going to the club funds – with a long term plan of resurfacing the courts.
For any further details, to buy tickets, own a horse or be a jockey on the night contact Donna on email@example.com
We hope you are all dusting off the rackets and getting ready for a new season of tennis. Please find below a link to the Club Calendar – this gives everyone an idea of what is going on and when (there is also a copy on the main noticeboard). As you will see there are lots of coaching opportunties with our new coach Wendy and we are also hoping for more social tennis when everyone can get together. The cafe made a profit of over £40 last season, so it is now fully restocked and ready for another busy year.Good luck to all the players who will be playing in the teams and fingers crossed for some good weather and lots of tennis! Don’t forget the Club Openday on 20th April with free coaching for juniors from 10-12hrs & adults 14-16hrs, come along and bring friends, relatives and neighbours.
Happy New Year to everyone. We hope you are all looking forward to 2013 & some better tennis weather! Our winter clean up day went well & resulted in over 30 bags of leaves & rubbish (there are still a few lying behind the main gate if people are able to pop by & remove them). The turnout was still a little disappointing & we will need another morning in the spring to prepare the courts for the new season, maybe more members will be able to come along & lend a hand – watch this space. This year’s AGM is planned for 26th Feb, 1930 at Murrayfield Church halls, please come along & have your say.
Mens doubles winners Dylan & Graham.
The finals day on 1st September was a great day. The rain stayed off & the matches were a real spectacle. There was even some pimms & nibbles for those not actually involved in the matches. We hope to upload some of the pictures soon so keep an eye on the website. For those who couldn’t make it the results were as follows -
Mens Singles – Winner : Alan Savage, runner up Dylan Egelstaff
Ladies Singles – Winner : Lynsey Watt, runner up Eileen Gillespie
Mens Doubles – Winners : Dylan Egelstaff & Graham Hood, runners up Alan Savage & Ian Stewart
Ladies Doubles – Winners : Lynsey Watt & Eileen Gillespie, runners up Tania Deacon & Linda Humphries (the ladies doubles match had to be played on Tuesday 4th September, but there was still a small crowd of spectators to cheer them on).
We are pleased to say Cafe Corner seems to be doing well. We are keen to get feedback on any additional items you would like us to stock, so please feel free to make a note on the posters in the clubhouse. Remember any profit from the cafe will go into the club funds.
Did you know the club had a Facebook page? Why not add us as a friend & keep up to date with all that’s going on at the club and keep in touch with others to arrange matches & social tennis.
Welcome to all the new members that have joined recently – it’s great to have you on board! We would love to see you at our Ladies / Gents / Juniors Nights and if you have any suggestions or feedback on the Club then we’d love to hear it!
The new website supports a members contact system. Going forward we plan to send news, updates, notices etc by email (obviously you can opt out of these at any time).
As such we need an up to date email address for as many members as possible. If you would like to keep up to date with all the goings on at the club & receive future communications by email (and save the club money!) then please send an email with your details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
