BANK HOLIDAY SOCIAL TENNIS (Mon 28 Aug from 1400)

Bank Holiday Monday 28 August means a chance for extra social tennis! Courts are booked from 1400 so just rock up and mix in. As usual all standards very welcome.

FOX TROPHY PREPARATIONS (2 Sept from 0930 till late, very late)

Yes it's that time of year again, when winning on the tennis court is not nearly as important as winning in the fancy dress arena. It's less than 2 weeks away, so make sure to start getting your outfits sorted and get ready to have a great day and night at this year's Fox Trophy! Any questions to graftonparties@gmail.com.
