We continue to be lucky with the weather and everyone seems to be enjoying being back on court


On Sunday the 2nd May 14.00-16.00 we will see the return of our American Tournament.
For those of you who are new to the club, once a month, the adult social session on Sundays turns into a tournament. This will consist of 4-5 rotations of 20-25min where the aim is to win as many games as possible within the allocated time. After each round we will be collecting your game score and ask you to split into new pairs. This is usually done by asking the losers to stay on the same court and split and the winner to move up one court and split. This ensures everyone will get the opportunity to play with different partners throughout the session.
The session is charged at £2 to cover new balls and can be booked through the link that all adult members will be sent.
