2017 Season Underway
The tennis season proper is now on with evening club nights starting again. I wanted to take this opportunity to update you with general news about the club. Please pay particularly attention to the coaching update – with kids coaching available on Saturday afternoons, Easter coaching camps starting and also adult coaching planned for Monday evenings.
Club night now fully underway every Tuesday and Thursday night from 6pm until dusk as well as Sunday mornings 10am until 1pm. Very likely a number of players will move on to one of the Tetbury pubs after club nights – with an open invitation to anyone to join.
Good news in that we have a new coaching set up this year. Stephen Johnson – starting up Saturday afternoon kids coaching, Monday evening coaching later in April as well as kids Easter camps. You can find more details through the coaching section of the website or by calling Stephen on 09767 188 057.
There are two teams this season. Chippenham division 1 captained by Paul Bird, and Gloucester – division 6 captained by John Esposito (thank you to John for stepping in this season). A friendly match practise is being arranged for 6pm to 8pm on Tuesday 18th April. For anyone interested in match play or keen to see what it’s about then please let me know interest and come along. A wide range of standards is catered for with one team in the lowest division and one team in the highest of their respective leagues.
We have three club tournaments scheduled in for the year. More details to follow nearer the time from Marcus but dates for you diary are:
- Jubilee Tournament – 14th May
- American Mixed Doubles – 9th July – BBQ at Club afterwards
- Hare and Hounds Cup – 3rd September
The Tetbury allocation of tickets for Wimbledon this year is 4 pairs with a ballot to be run before the 19th May. More details to follow.
As ever we are encouraging new members. We had 11 new members last year and are hoping to top that this season. Please pass the word to anyone who might be interested in joining.
