The 2017 senior club championships were held on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 April. We were blessed with glorious weather which meant all five events were completed on schedule.
There was some very exciting tennis played in a friendly atmosphere with particularly big draws in the Men’s Singles and Mixed Doubles.
A special thanks to Roger Parker for manning the barbeque yet again and cooking up a storm with able assistance from Chris Garmonsway.
