90th Birthday 'Twenties Tennis' event on 19th July

The club held a special tournament on 19th July to celebrate the club's 90th anniversary. Members and ex-members were invited and asked to dress in twenties style tennis clothing. It was a brilliant event and thanks to Anthea for organising the event and providing the wooden racquets and to Melva, Julie and Carol Johnson for providing the refreshements.

The tournament was closely contested and Gary Edwards just pipped Linda Clark to win by just 1 point. There was also a prize for the best dressed competitor which was won by Helen Lowe. There a re few photos of the event below but it is hoped to post more, better quality ones, very soon.



 March Tournament
The weather was perfect for the first social tournament of 2015. There was a good turnout with 12 players competing. The format was the same as last year with each player playing 4 matches of 4 games each, all with different partners and opposition. Following the play a wonderful lunch was enjoyed by all, especially Anthea's delicious homemade onion soup. The winner of this tournament was Linda Davies and the photos below show Anthea presenting the trophy together with the other players.
