Many thanks to all the players for making the Club Champs this year very special again. We had a massive entry and all the matches were played in a great spirit throughout the 3 weeks.
Committee members, ground staff, catering team, coaches, members, burger vans, umpires, juniors, volunteers, partners, sponsors (Mike & Jo Richards) all made the event tick and produce a special finals weekend.
Marc Hughes did a wonderful job of opening the viewing area and bench in memory of my dad, and I hope many of you enjoy watching the tennis there for many years to come.
Well done to all the finalists, it's hard to play a tennis match at any time, but on finals day, in front of the crowds we get, is a real test. You should all be incredibly proud ????
