Christmas News

Included in this newsletter this month is the details on the Gordon Bennett Trophy, Club handicap doubles, Christmas Eve Doubles and some other bits and bobs!!

Gordon Bennett Trophy – Father and Son’s

Final entries are now being taken for the Father and Son’s (Parent and offspring) on the weekend of 3rd/4th January. We have a very strong field already with over 12 pairs taking part. The draw will be done this weekend, and it is hoped to have a Sunday morning group, so if anybody has a preference on playing time, please let me know.

Club Handicap Doubles

The closing date for the Handicap Doubles will be the Friday the 2nd January. I have spoken to many people and they are starting to pair up for the tournament over the 10/11/12th January. It is hoped to have a Friday night group for this event, so again, if this was to suit please get in touch.

Christmas Draw

Once again this year we have the club Christmas Draw. The prize this year is a limited edition Rob Fahey signature racket. The squares are priced at £5 each, if you would like us to put your name down, then let me know, and we can square up next time you are in the club. This draw is one of the very few fundraising events where the money goes straight to the club, so please help out and buy a square.

Christmas Eve Doubles

Our annual Christmas Eve doubles will be taking place again this year on Wednesday the 24th from 9am until 1pm. Mince pies and champagne will be available for a final catch up before Christmas. This event is just a turn up on the day, hopefully we will see a good number of you there.

Opening Hours

If anybody would like to book a court over the weekend of 27/28th December, please call the club to book a court, as opposed to using the online system please, this will help us with organising our staff schedules.


Finally, all the staff at the Sports Centre would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year. Hopefully we will see you all at some point on court before now and New Year.
