Hi everybody – this post deals with several reminders for members so please read it all!!

The order of play is:

1pm – Ladies Singles (finalists still to be determined), Men’s Veterans Singles (Simon Page v Alan Hopkins), Boy’s Singles (Jacob Smith v Freddie Godfrey)

2.30pm (approx) – Ladies Doubles (Gill Webb & Jane Pope v Lisa Stuckey & Jane Gray) Men’s Doubles (Chris Henshaw & Mike Bacon v Simon Page & Calum Tween)

The date for our AGM is Friday 8th November, 7.30pm for an 8pm start – as last year, we will publish reports in advance and enjoy pizzas and a few beers (Prosecco??) after the main business of the meeting has been completed. We are always keen to welcome new committee members so if you’d like to find out more about what it entails, please contact me here.

Social Doubles sessions through the winter – diary dates

We have booked courts for three Friday evenings so that we can arrange some social Doubles tournaments on those nights – the dates are:

Friday 22nd November, Friday 24th January, Friday 13th March

Please look out for emails nearer the time so we can ensure a good attendance on all three evenings.
