Summer Ball – Tickets now available!

Our Summer Ball takes place on 10th September this year. Included this year is a live band (the fantastic Oliver Twist), music, and a buffet. Tickets cost £25. Last year’s first ever Summer Ball was a great success, so this is another great opportunity for all people associated with the club to get together and celebrate another fantastic ‘Summer of Tennis’ at Shooters Hill Tennis Club. Our social secretary Phil Smith (see below for details) is the primary contact for purchasing tickets and answering any queries you might have but feel free to ask other Directors also in Phil’s absence.
