Recycling Tennis Balls
We are going to start using a tennis ball recycling scheme. There will be payments made to the club for batches of 200 used balls. We will donate all funds raised in this way to charities with which the club has links.

We will place an easily identifiable storage bin for collection of old balls.
Full info on the web link.

Number 3: NEW!
CT will run singles coaching on a Thursday 8 – 9pm for adults. Interested players (mixed level) need to let Ross Helmsley know (ross@challenge-tennis.com 07729553730) to sign up for a six or twelve week programme. There is a possibility of extending this to Wednesday night if it proves popular.

No excuses, get playing singles!
MacMillan/Roy Vincent Tennis Event
Many thanks to Ann Vincent for organising the tournament, and organising the players - no mean feat - and to Jill and Kate, our very own Master Chefs, who provided a lovely lunch. And thank you all who came and drank coffee, ate cake, played tennis, ate lunch and popped a few quid in the pot.
It totalled a magnificent £631which will be divided between MacMillan nurses and the Florence Nightingale Hospice. Thank you all.

Juniors' Christmas Event
Yes, it's coming up to that time of year, and Raja is onto it!

We are planning a Christmas special for juniors on one of the Friday evenings. I have a whatsapp poll open, which I will bump again for parents to vote. Look out for it, and please vote. And of course we'll need volunteers to do food in our kitchen too. Contact Raja rajram75@yahoo.com if you can help.

I will narrow down the choice of date based on both Jill and my availability as well as parents.

Come and join us!

Contact us today if you are interested in joining one of the few 'Grand Slam' tennis clubs in the UK.
