Our handicap tournament event took place at the weekend and proved to be an overwhelming…
On Sunday we hosted our annual Christmas tournament (has it really been a year since the last one?!)
As ever it was a popular event with 31 participants taking part, followed by over 60 for the sit down Christmas meal. Always a great way to kick off the count down to Christmas.
The tennis was played in the spirit for which the club is known – fun and social. Everybody who braved the cold had a fantastic time – this was partly helped by Len and Mary’s half time mulled wine and mince pie break!
Well done to the winning team of the Gold W’s, expertly managed by Judith.
We’re looking forward to next year’s tournament already!
