Play Your Way To Wimbledon Tournament – Saturday 13 April 2024
We are tying in with the LTA ‘Play Your Way To Wimbledon’ tournament again this year. The event will take place all on one day from 10.30-3.30pm.
There will be a Men’s & Women’s doubles competition in a short set format. Entry is open to anyone 19+ years (born before 2005) and with a World Tennis Number (WTN) between 23.0-40.9. This means that stronger players may not be eligible, so the event is accessible to everyone. To find your rating, you need to login to your LTA Advantage account and click on MyGame.
Winners go forward to a regional event with the chance to qualify for the Finals at the All England Club! In fact Anna and Barbara represented the Club at Wimbledon last year. Please contact me if you want to enter, or if you have any queries about your WTN, and I’ll provide more details. Entry fee – £15 per pair.

Bar & Six Nations Rugby
We always looking for volunteers to help with various activities and aspects of the Club. Currently we have vacancies to join our Bar committee, which meets four times a year. This committee is a legal requirement of our Club licence and status. Its responsibilities include ideas to increase usage of the bar, as well as organizing social events. Anyone interested, please contact me for more information.
The following Six Nations rugby matches will be shown in the bar this weekend if anyone wants to pop in and watch: Saturday at 2.15pm – Ireland v Wales. The bar will be open for drinks and snacks until 4.30pm.
