Ladies Only Fun Tournament, 22 April 2022

This was the first ladies only tournament of the year – two more to come on Sat June 11th for those ladies that want to play and are usually at work, and the final one for the year on Fri 19th August 2022.

It was quite challenging playing in the wind but the 14 ladies who played in it played some good tennis and there were some very close matches. There was also lots of lovely food brought by the ladies to share.

The winners were Fiona Pye and Clare Murfitt and runners up were Sandra Ayres and Chris Bailey. Winners of the consolation prize were Sue Simpson and Debbie Lane.

Obituary: – Richard Shervington.

It was with great sadness that we heard of the recent death of Richard Shervington. Richard was President of the Club for many years and donated the President’s Cup. He made a huge and generous contribution over the decades to help make the club what it is today. Without his and his sister Jan’s commitment and contribution, it is probable the club would not exist at all. Richard will be remembered for his good humour, outstanding achievements and dedication to the club over the years.
