It was great to see the summer camps happening during August. All the spaces were sold out. Would you believe that one of the weeks coincided with the really intense heatwave and then there was a day which was completely rained off!

A huge well done to our U14 boys team who scored an impressive 6-0 victory over The Avenue Club at the weekend. Very well played Max, Freddie, Ben and Oli.
Sunday March 10th was windy, very windy! There was an U16 Girls match and a Ladies C match on at Avondale and everyone had to play through very blustery and showery conditions. Izzy and Nina didn’t quite manage to get a win, though they with Ciaro and Emma had a good win earlier in the season. Well done to them though for trying their best on such a difficult day! The Ladies C team did win their match – well done to them too!
The Ladies B team had an away match that day. They gained enough points to secure their promotion to the Premier Division next season. So congratulations all round!
Avondale Juniors had double success at the end of November. The U16 boys (Matt, Oli, Lleyton and Kieran) beat Brightwells 3-1 in the local league, and the U16 girls (Emily and Ciara) beat Thornden 3-O in the county league.
Well done to all of you!
A HUGE Thank you to all the amazing Coaches and Leaders, Zana Fletcher, Paul Treacy, Ken Robson and Peter Fennell on parking, Debra Norton for her delicious catering, for making Saturdays Junior Tennis Festival such a great success! You were all awesome! Well done Team!
Here is a comment from one of the parents :Thanks for having us this morning, we all had a lovely time and enjoyed the activities. All your young people who were there helping and coaching were delightful!
Awesome performance from the U16 Girls yesterday, beating Thornden 5-1 in the Hampshire Team Tennis. I am particularly pleased that a parent from the opposition said “thank you for being so encouraging and playing nice shots…. we don’t always get that”. Well done Chloe, Willow, Ciara and Savanna , a performance to be proud of!!
