In the days before cameras were invented we had to draw everything by hand. Look!


Presentation Prizes

What a great night for the club. As well as picking up winners trophies for Division 1, Division 3, Philips Cup, (one half of) the mens doubles, intermediate ladies doubles and intermediate mens singles, Liz Holt won player of the season, and we were awarded club of the season. Brilliant.

Great social night as well. Hope you all enjoyed it and if you have any snaps send them on to me and I’ll stick them on our web site. I think some of you might need a reminder that you were actually there!
