A few reminders this week as I'm sure school holidays and trips away take your mind off the club's diary of events.

There is still one more week of Summer Camps - Monday 21 August - Yellow ball (beginners) 10 - 11.30am for ages 11 - 14yrs;  Monday 28 -  red ball 9.30 - 11am for 6 - 8yrs; Tuesday 29 August  yellow ball (competitors)  and Wednesday 30 August - Orange and Green ball players - 12 - 2pm. There may be a few places still available so if you are interested ring Ian Watson 496293 or e-mail

The full club coaching programme will re-start from Saturday 16 September.

There are a few spaces at all three sessions from12 - 2pm, so again contact Ian. This is part of your Mini/Junior club membership. New applicants can attend for three free sessions, then will be asked to join if they wish to continue.. Contact Jan Gaskill by e-mail for membership details and fees. 

The tournament forms for the following events will be available shortly; 9 - 17 September - Club Auxesia Senior Closed Championships - 9 - 17 September, Club Auxesia Closed Junior Tournament 16 - 23 September, Albany Chrystals Senior Open 7 - 15 October, Albany Auxesia Junior Open 14 - 21 October. The date for Presidents Day - Senior/Junior Doubles has not yet been decided.

Finally may I say a really big "Thank you" to all family and friends who came to lunch at the club on Sunday to help me and Bryan celebrate our Diamond Wedding anniversary. I will be doing a personal "thank you" to all who made a donation for charity, the total for which has reached £620.The lounge looks really good now, decorated and with new carpet and is now ready for hire.  It has room for 54 people, with use of a fully fitted kitchen and the rates are very reasonable and tennis parties for children are available.
