Well done to all members who represented the club over the weekend.  Only 4 fixtures this weekend, so not plenty of time to use the courts.

Please note, there are still spaces for our upcoming American Tournament on Sunday 29th May 2-4pm.  Please use the sign up sheet inside the clubhouse to avoid missing out.

Furthermore, there are still spaces for our club doubles and club singles tournaments in June.  Ideally we can break more records and have the biggest entry in both events, just like we did with the mixed!

Breaking News!  Davis Cup Trophy:  The Davis Cup trophy is coming to a venue near you!  Bromley Tennis Centre will host the Davis Cup trophy on Wednesday 8th June 4-7pm.  Our very own John Ratcliffe is organising the event!  Special quest Annabel Croft will be there from 6pm.  However, the highlight of the evening will be the chance to beat the coach, with the coach being our very own Luke House!  Please come and join us for a fun evening of tennis and celebration.  All juniors must be in their tennis outfits to enjoy the on court activities.  I will email you all this week with more details, including the address.

May Half Term Tournaments:  The coaching team will be running our club junior tournaments during the May half term next week.  Tuesday to Friday 10-5pm.  We should not need all the courts and some tournaments may merge together, which would free up more courts for members to use.  Thank you for your understanding as always.  The coaching programme in the evenings will be suspended for one week, so please use the courts as much as you can.

Many thanks,

Club Captain

Phil Layfield.
