I hope you enjoyed a very merry Christmas and are now getting geared up for lots of tennis in the New Year.
The New Year traditionally starts off with the Hangover Doubles and KK has 5 couples lined up to take on the challenge. Non-participating members are welcome to come along and barrack from the dedans!
The weekend of the 5th and 6th January is given over to the Boasters Rackets Weekend, which is another regular annual event.
Other important diary dates include:
Saturday 12th January - an away match against Middlesex University Tennis Club, based in Hendon. It will provide an ideal opportunity to play on a totally different court. Talk to KK or Ben if you are interested in going along as I am sure that there will be car sharing available
Sunday 13th January – the Yearling Cup
This is a Club competition open to all members who have recently joined or have been playing for less than 12 months. Talk to KK or Ben if you are interested (and eligible!) in playing.
Saturday 19th January – A Parents and Offspring Fun Day
This is a KK and Ben special and, as the name says, it is open to all parents and offspring who are interested in playing. So get your names down and come along and have some fun.
Saturday 26th January – a home match against Oratory.
And don’t forget the regular Monday and Wednesday Club nights and the box competitions, which will continue throughout the month.
You might also be interested in putting your name down for an away match against The Hyde on Saturday 2nd February. This is a lovely court on the outskirts of Bridport and it’s a great day out – or you can even make a weekend of it!
Finally, may I take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year with plenty of tennis.
