Stuart Murray at Wimbledon and the Mini Reds triumph in their county finals

Main Image
This week Head coach Stuart Murray was invited to the Presidents lunch at Wimbledon in recognition of his achievement as the Lawn Tennis Association Northern Region Coach of the Year. Stuart and his wife Aisling enjoyed lunch with Martin Corrie, the President of the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) at Wimbledon last week. Stuart, Head Coach at Alderley Edge Tennis Club was invited to the Championships after winning the accolade of LTA North Coach of the Year in 2016. Stuart and his wife Aisling joined his fellow regional award winners at the celebratory lunch before enjoying tennis in the sun on Centre Court. In the same week as Stuart was at Wimbledon, the club's mini-red A team triumphed in their county finals against Cuddington and Sandiway. Not quite the same as centre court at Wimbledon but a great event for the youngsters. The victorious team comprised of Moses Musonda, Ted Black, Eva Jenkins and Harry Hardcastle. With two of the team regulars (Kit Campbell and Seb Stewart) away on holiday, Moses and Harry stepped up and played some fantastic tennis in supporting the regular members of the team - Ted and Eva. The final result could not have been closer - at 16 sets all, the points scored were counted up. Alderley Edge won by a whisker - with only one point separating the two teams. Stuart commented 'It's great to see the youngest team in the club doing so well. It is the start of their tennis journey' Ruth Samuels, Junior Chairman commented 'Stuart Murray the Head Coach and Allan Morton, Assistant Coach, have developed the children's tennis in the last couple of years. It is now great to start to see the fruits of their labour. The children thoroughly enjoy their tennis and there is a great team spirit and camaraderie. It is fantastic to see them supporting each other at such a young age' This weekend sees the Under 18 boys competing in their county finals      See full story...
