Due to circumstances beyond our control, the advertised charity fund-raising will not take place on Finals Day. We hope to run some events later in the year.
However, the day itself [this coming Sunday 3rd July] will take place, as usual, with amazing tennis, a delicious BBQ, and tea & cake in the pavilion.
Please come along and enjoy the fun. Events start at 12, but there is an opportunity for social play before that.
A new lock to the side gate has been installed. This is in response to blatant theft of fuel from the storage facility used by the groundsman. It is a code lock. Please email me to learn the code as we do not wish it to be published on the club website.
Also, could you please re-lock the gate after entering and leaving.
A Farm Avenue resident was awoken last Thursday, a public holiday, at 06:15 by play on one of the back courts. This is unacceptable. The earliest start time during normal weekdays is 07:00, and 08:00 on weekends and public holidays.
Dear tennis members,
This is an open invitation to join us on Finals Day and help revive the pre-pandemic ‘family’ atmosphere of the club. Numerous events will be taking place throughout the afternoon, and all funds raised will go to UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees). Obviously the situation in Ukraine is currently foremost in our minds, but there are displaced people suffering all over the world - and UNHCR has the experience and the tools to provide aid in the most effective way.
Tournament finals will begin at 12 o’clock and, as ever, there should be some spectacular matches. Tea and refreshments will be available all day, with the addition of a hearty BBQ from 1pm.
Other events planned include:
- Mass warm-up
- Outdoor yoga class
- Kids races
- Great Brondesbury Bake-Off
Please keep your eye out for follow up newsletters, where I will clarify events and timings. As ever, we have a day of community to look forward to, and, unlike Wimbledon, everyone is welcome.
See you all soon,
If you're looking for a game midweek daytime, come along on Tuesdays and Thursdays from about 1pm.
Our next Mix 'n' Match tournament will take place on Sunday 22nd May. Head down to the club for 2pm if you want to play some relaxed, friendly tennis and meet other members. We'll assign you to partners for 4 rounds of tennis, with a different partner each time.
Bring along some food or drink and we'll tuck in from around 4pm.
