They’re under starter’s orders…

It’s that time of year where the new League season rolls into view once again – and this year there are a few differences!

The biggest change is undoubtedly the addition of a third night just for matches.  With the large numbers now turning up regularly for club nights, and no possibility of booking extra courts on those nights, taking two courts away for matches wasn’t really an option.  So the decision has been taken to book two courts on Thursday evenings for all our home matches.  Club members are welcome to come down and cheer our teams on in any of the matches – pom-poms are optional!

As well as an extra night, we’ve also entered a second Mixed team in the League.  Sadly other clubs have had to drop teams resulting in just the one division.  This means plenty of games for each team including, of course, two inter-club matches – a  chance for some friendly rivalry no doubt!

And finally the summer has brought some new faces to our teams for the upcoming season, the unfortunate loss of Alan Lee as his job search took him to pastures new and the exit of those returning to their studies away from home.  Good luck to Simran and Beth as they start university, and to Isha, Dan and Sunil as they continue – we look forward to seeing you back at the club sometime in the holidays.
