Welcome to the first of the summer’s “What’s On”.
I will begin by thanking Jan Fuller and her team of helpers for putting on a very enjoyable, successful Barn Dance on the 25th of May. Those that I have spoken to had a very good time.
Still on the theme of May’s events, I must congratulate Jon Lennon for winning this year’s Chairman’s Cup competition in three sets, 3/6, 6/4, 6/4, against Basil Hollington in what was a great game. Also congratulations to Tim Turley for winning the inaugural Chairman’s Bowl competition against Paul Butler in a very good game, 6/5, 6/4. Well done to all four finalists.
Remaining on the theme of club competitions, the Michael Jones Trophy, being the club’s main handicap singles competition, begins on Wednesday the 7th of June. Please remember to enter this enjoyable competition by calling Kevin in the next few days. The two finalists in this competition are eligible to play in the Chetwood Trophy, the national clubs’ handicap competition played in January at The Hyde. On Friday 9th June, Jan Fuller is organizing a wonderful Moroccan themed supper at 7.00pm, giving members the chance to meet friends over a lovely supper and also watch some of the competition play. Book your place at the dinner by contacting Kevin at the club.
Later in June we have doubles and singles medal days on Sunday the 18th and Saturday the 24th respectively, so sign up to join the fun. We also have a singles medal day on 22nd July.
Beginning on Saturday the 1st of July, and running through July and August, we will again be running the “Sunshine Cup”. Entry will be £10 each and the winner will receive a new racket.
Enjoy your tennis; with best wishes, Denis
