Defibrillator at clubhouse

We now have a defibrillator, thanks to the hard work of Linda Ganter in making this happen. There was a training programme this afternoon (Saturday January 20th). Here’s Zana’s Facebook post about it “Just completed a very informative defibrillator/CPR training course at the club along with 18 others. There are still spaces on the second course on 17 February – definitely worth the two hours. You could help save someone’s life. Thank you Linda Ganter for organising and to the Club for providing.”

What’s on for Juniors update : Summer 2017

We have now added to the events we are running for Juniors during the school holidays. As described in an earlier post there are holiday camps throughout August. There will also be cluster tennis and tactical play sessions. For most of the activities, we ask you to register in advance. The exception is Mini Red on Wednesdays from 4:00 during August. Just turn up, Pay and Play.

Please remember that we are having a Teen Tennis event on Friday September 8th which is free and non-members will be welcome. Please spread the word amongst your friends and encourage them to come along. It won’t just be “normal” tennis games – there will be Cardio Tennis, Touch Tennis and other tennis related games and activities.

For all the details, please follow this link Summer courses 2017 to the Holiday Courses Page (on the Coaching menu).

Quorn family event 2017

A great turnout for this weekend’s Quorn Family Cup U10 Tournament. With four courts in use, the Mums/Dads plus their U10s thrashed it out to win the day.
The winners have earned the opportunity of a day out at a Quorn Family Tennis Cup event held on the qualifying weekend of a LTA Staged Grass Court tournament in May or June.
Each pair will have the chance to play against other winners on the day as well as watch the professional players in action.

Winners: Adam and Angus
Runners up: Jacob and Richard
Not sure in the photos who looks most pleased – the juniors or the Dads!

Smiths Cup events 2017

Seven pairs turned out for the Mens’ Smiths Cup competition on Sunday 9th April. With not a cloud in the sky and temperatures in the mid-20s, it was a glorious but physically demanding afternoon of tennis. For the second year in a row, Tom Van Klaveren and Ben Martin emerged as the winners, being undefeated in all of the six sets they played. Runners-up with five wins were Mark Hill and recently-joined new member Chris Cole. Debra Norton and Linda Robson provided the usual delicious tea.
The Ladies event on the Saturday was played in equally good weather. A glass of prosecco at the end added to the general enjoyment. The winners were sisters Jane and Anne-Marie Baldwin.
