That said, it has not all been negative, and I am proud of how we have responded as a Club. There have been lots of challenges this year and the Club has risen to them all – from lockdowns to tier restrictions and lots more besides.
Whilst lockdown brought many problems, it was great to see our members, both adult and juniors, get together to be a part of our virtual rally video, proving that we wouldn’t let a little thing like closing the Club stop us from playing tennis.
Back on court
Even the cancellation of the leagues didn’t get us down as we turned to our friends and neighbours to arrange a series of competitive friendly (!) matches. The Annual Tournament also brought out the competitive spirit with a good level of participation and a high standard of tennis.
Tennis Camps continued, albeit in a slightly different format, with Sean and the coaching team showing their flexibility to adapt to the limitations, whilst at the same time ensuring the safety of everyone involved.
