Junior Newsletter - 5th July
What a busy week it has been at the club, with lots of junior tennis action.
We had the schools tournament on Wednesday afternoon a week ago (sorry, missed last week’s newsletter deadline!) when most of our local junior schools each entered a couple of teams for the event. It was wonderful to see our club so busy on a school afternoon, when it’s normally really quiet. There was some excellent tennis and really good behaviour from the children. The winners of the tournament were St Martins and North Downs who came joint first.
This previous weekend was also busy at the club, with our mini junior tournament on Friday afternoon and the adult club tournament finals on the Saturday. The junior tournament was a real success with lots of really good tennis being played. Well done to all those who took part and all those who helped out.
