Match-Play Dates - for Teams (Free for members / £3 for non-members; reminder that all team players MUST be members and should also have a BTM number) We have assigned specific match-play dates to teams - one for each age group. All children can STILL come along to ALL match-play sessions, but we are specifically allocating a date to each age group, so that the team managers can encourage their squads to turn up on those dates and get some match practice - either singles or doubles. The dates are as follows: 7th May: Normal match play PLUS: Mini-Reds - 1-2pm Mini-Orange - 1-2pm 14th May: Normal match play PLUS: Mini-Green - 1-2pm 21st May: Normal match play PLUS: Under 12-15 Boys - 12.30-2pm 18th June: Normal match play PLUS: Mini-Green - 1-2pm Under 12-15 Girls - 12.30-2pm 25th June: Normal match play PLUS: All Mini Tennis Under 12-15 Girls & Boys - 12.30-2pm 2nd July: Normal match play PLUS: Mini-Reds - 1-2pm Mini-Orange - 1-2pm      See full story...

Wimbledon Draw - Wednesday 26th April - 8pm

Wimbledon Ticket Draw: Wednesday 26th April, 8.00 p.m. Please note the above date for your diaries. But there’s also a couple of changes and big please here…… This year the LTA rules say that if anyone has opted-in then their name will go into our draw. This means that you no-longer have to put your name on a list on the board in the club-house to enter the draw. If your name is on the list in the club-house it means that you have opted-in and will be in the draw. (It’s worth checking that you are on the list because last year the LTA lost some names between opting-in and making the list available) We know that some members have opted in because we asked as many as possible to opt-in because opt-ins = prizes, the LTA use the number of opt-ins to decide how many tickets we get. So, there are possibly some members who may go into the draw who do not really want to be in the draw. If you fall into this category, please email me and I will remove your name from our list. Many thanks for your help. Paul Murray      See full story...
