British Junior Open 2020

We are happy to announce the British Junior Open is back with us from Thursday January 2nd to Sunday January 5th 2020.

Some of the world’s top junior players will be competing in this premier Junior Tournament.

Members can come down and watch some top quality competitive squash from early morning to evening every day, free of charge.

This will mean that each day from the 2nd-5th there will be 4 squash courts booked out for this event, so there will like last year be less courts for our members to book.

There will also be practice courts booked from Saturday 28th December until Thursday the 2nd when the tournament begins.

We really need volunteers to help with this event, if you are willing to help, please email Michelle Moore via the contact form.

Opt-in for Wimbledon

It’s here again! – Wimbledon Ballot Opt-In time !

As in the past 6 years tennis members are asked to ‘opt-in’ to Wimbledon via the LTA web site.

Even if you do not intend to apply for Wimbledon 2020 tickets via your club ballot PLEASE ‘opt-in’ in order that the club allocation of tickets is as many as possible for us to put into our own ballot. The number given to the club directly relates to the number of members that take the time to ‘opt-in’.

Please be aware that you need to be a British Tennis Member to ‘opt-in’. This is free and can also be done via the LTA web site.

Please note the minimum age for ‘opting-in’ is 11 years old.

If you have any queries please contact Pat Cropper (Ballot administrator).
