Last Saturday saw the club host a Monster Smash Benendentennis tournament. The trick or treat cards certainly mixed the games up for our doubles pairs, with cards tricks making the pairs only play backhand shots or having to make a 360 turn out after each shot. All good fun and a nice change to our usual American Tournaments!
Thanks to all the members who played.
Summer Tennis Camps.
Today saw the start of Leyland Tennis Club Summer Camps. The children enjoyed a variety of games and fun matches. Pixie the dog also came along, watching from the bench!
U16's are currently in 4th position in their league with 1 match still to play against Ribchester. A win of 4 points or more could see them finish in 3rd place.
U14's had a tough season. The experience that many of our U12's players received by playing up when they were needed should provide a stronger team for next year.
U12's have finished their season with only 3 teams in their league. They went into their last match against Broughton needed 3 points to top the league. Unfortunately after some hard fought matches against a good Broughton team, they only managed to bring 1 point home, therefore finishing in 2nd place. Following great play, effort and fair matches the future of tennis at Leyland looks bright.
On Saturday 1st July, Leyland Tennis Club held their annual American Tournament for Fox Lane Sports and Social Club Presidents Day.
We had a great turnout of Ladies, Men and Junior club players who did themselves proud with brilliant and fun tennis games.
The winners, Sue Barnes and Colin Gibson were presented with the trophy after the final by the President, Dave Wane.
Well done to everyone that took part and especially to the winners.
