With the season now well under way, here’s a quick round up of whats going on at the club.
It’s great to welcome so many new members, especially so many ladies to the club. Membership is going from strength to strength. We must be doing something right !
Were off to great start. All of our senior teams are in the top 3 of their league and we are progressing well in the cup competitions. A special mention to Mike Whitnall and the Junior team who are currently 3rd in Div2 of the Bolton League.
The Thursday coaching sessions are extremely popular and a great advert for the club. I arrived during the 8-11yrs session last week and I counted 22 youngsters playing and almost as many watching. Great to see and wonderful advert for the club.
Steve Mannion not only runs the coaching fantastically well, he has taken four of our teenage members though the LTA Tennis Leaders qualification, It’s the first step on the coaching ladder. Great from them and their CV and obviously for the club as they help Steve on Thursdays.
Congratulations to Kristian, Abigail, Rohan & Daniel (joint 1st) Joe and Tom at the coaching tournament.
Steve Wilkinson continues working on the courts and has completed his renovations on the hut. The courts had a lot (over £2000 worth) of work over the winter. Thanks to Terry Crompton and Steve for working with the contractors (and the neighbours).
Sundays (from 10:00am) session is as popular as ever as well as a Tuesday evening (from 6:30) session which runs most weeks. If there was an award for dedication, then Andy Coomber, Tony Stilwell and Steve Wilkinson would collect after playing on Sundays through the winter.
26 June at Worsley Old Hall – Nothing formal, just a chance to get together for a drink if you fancy it.
