Wimbledon, Thursday Squads and Singles Ladder

Wimbledon, Thursday Squads and Singles Ladder

It's Wimbledon time, which might make you want to brave the chilly weather and try a few of those highlight reel shots yourself, out on the court.

We have just the thing for you: Thursday squads with coach Peter Blow. For a few years now Peter Blow has been putting on a winter squad session on Thursday evenings. This year's session has been going well so far and we have had some decent sessions when the weather has allowed it. Everyone is welcome once you are willing to sweat and pay a paltry $10! There would be room for another 3/4 new participants at the moment.

Thursdays 6:30pm start. See Peter Blow for details.


And for everyone that's interested we are proposing to restart the Singles Ladder.  The idea would be that we would take some pointers from the successful (former) Dog Run website that has been running in Auckland. My personal wish is to eventually have players who are from other clubs and even not affiliated with a club, participating. The goals of the Ladder in any case, include finding more players who are at your own level to play against, to improve your tennis skills and enjoyment, and to help with Interclub team selection. Let us know your thoughts. in the comments.

All the best for a fine winter of Tennis.

See you at the AGM!
