Change of Location for 1st of February

On Sunday the 1st of February, 2015 we will be playing at Belrose Tennis Courts rather than Wakehurst Courts. This is because of a Junior Tennis Tournament at Wakehurst Tennis Courts which received at the last moment a larger than expected entry (perhaps due to the success of the younger Australian tennis players at the Australian Championships).

On the Sunday morning now at Belrose we will be presenting the trophies for the winners of the Wakehurst Club Championships. It would be appreciated if those players can attend. The presentation will take place at about 10.30am and play will be stopped for a short while. Even if those winners are unable to play through injury or other reason still come to enable us to complete the trophy giving.

We will have four courts from 9am until 12 noon to provide plenty of competitive social play.
