SUMMER SPECIAL TENNIS COMPETITION

The results are in….

After the long hot summer of 2018, our Summer Special Competition concluded in a round robin final played in drizzly rain in November!!
A great morning’s tennis saw 5 couples contest for the glory of being crowned Champions.
It was close fought with Sharon and Graham winning just one more game than Laura and Jenny to take the glory – and of course a bottle of wine each!

Warm sausage rolls and coffee helped sustain players and spectators.

Sam does it again…

Our junior member Sam competed at The Learning Disability National Championship in Nottingham recently.
Having just come out of hospital, Sam played singles and doubles over three days, winning Silver in the singles Div 10 and Gold in doubles Div 6,
getting a special mention from the Special Olympics organiser for his enthusiasm.

Congratulations, Sam!
