All the details about our holiday camps over the May half-term are now available, with booking details. You will find this under the Coaching tab.
We have added to the programme for the Monday Junior Social evenings. They now include Mini Red and Family sessions.
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.”
Our AGM is on Wednesday November 15th at the clubhouse starting at 7:30pm. Please try to come along! Click here to see the agenda

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!
