SUPER SEMI-FINALS WEEK

A reminder to all to come down to Finals Day this Saturday 20th July! The weather is looking great and the day promises to be a fun-filled affair with no less than 16 matches to be played, including 4 junior finals. 

Come down from 11am to enjoy a day of top-notch tennis and to lend your support to your fellow members. There’s also lots of other activities to get involved in including social tennis, see how you fare against our new coach and ex-tennis pro Alex Ward, test your serve in the speed gun competition, and enjoy some seasonal cocktails at our new pop up bar on Murray’s Mound. 

And of course, there's the coveted Grafton Bake Off winner's title up for grabs - bring down your baked fares on the day to enter! 

If you are able to help out (even for a short time) on the day, we need volunteers for manning/wommaning the BBQ, commentating on The Chronicle, judging the Bake-Off, behind the bar, running the speed gun competition etc. If you can lend a hand, please emailgraftonclubchamps@gmail.com.

In the run up to the big day on Saturday, there is plenty of Semi Final matches (and the odd Quarter Final straggler) scheduled to whet your appetite. Order of Play (as of Friday 12th June) is as follows:
