Welcome to fabulous February.
A lovely time of year, knowing spring is just around the corner and good tennis playing weather (hopefully).
We held our annual New Year’s Day Wooden Racket Tournament, ten of us turned up and had a fantastic morning, staying after the tournament for a game of tennis with our up to date rackets. Well done to James Cane and Lesley Simkins for your victorious performance of brilliant tennis. The prize was a certificate of your success and being able to say you beat the rest of us! The trophy is a 6ft high wooden racket, where an engraved tag is added each year. We worked out that there is well over a hundred years of tournaments to be played on this trophy. Wonder who'll be reporting in the Elmham News then?
Coaching continues throughout the winter, James runs a fantastic programme of coaching with juniors and adults. Club sessions continue on Friday evening at 6.30 and Sunday morning at 10.00. Cardio tennis shoes are also proving to be extremely popular on a Saturday morning at 9.15, so you can see there is a lot going on at your local club that is recognised as a successful village club by the LTA.
It would be lovely to see new members coming along to join in the fun.
