'Exercise to the Grand Slams' Challenge - US Open arrival - now we are heading to the Australian Open! All welcome to join us....
Stuart Murray, our Head Tennis Coach, has set all the tennis players a lockdown challenge to collectively take part in the 'Exercise to the GRAND SLAMS' Challenge.
The aim is that during this lockdown, everyone should record even the smallest, walk, run or bike ride, to our 'Club page' on the Strava App, so we can see how far the members of the club can travel together as a team. This is a team effort to show what we can achieve as a community.
We have already visited Wimbledon (207.4m), the home of the French Open - Roland Garros (480.5m) and Flushing Meadow in the US (3338m). Our next target is Melbourne Park where the Australian Open is played (10543m) and we are nearly two thirds of the way there now. Let's aim to be there before March 29th. There is still time to help us! This last week our team did 183 hours of exercise and cover a massive 1256m (2022km) - only another 3645m (5866) to go!
66 Athletes, 970hrs of exercise, 6898m (11,101km)
