2 Court Bubble Heating
Due to a mechanical problem with the generator, there is currently no heating available in the 2-court bubble. Rubis engineers will attend on Thursday 25th January to carry out essential repairs.
Unfortunately, this will mean that the bubble will be closed for play from 12pm until 3pm on that day. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.

Tie Break 10 Singles
The first one-day event of the new year took place on Sunday 7th January and this time the event was called “Tie Break Tens”!
A singles competition for all levels, each match consisting of one tie break with over arm serve first player to the magical ten points, with the idea of playing lots of short quick matches.
We had fifteen players taking part split into three round-robin groups of five, so everyone was guaranteed at least four matches. The matches were very competitive with lots of close matches, some going to 9 all with sudden death points being played to decide the match.
The winners of each group were Steve Syvret, Sam Carnegie and Asep!
One of the most gratifying aspects of these one-day events is the opportunity for members to face off against players they might not usually encounter. It's a fantastic way to foster camaraderie within the tennis club community.A big thank you to everyone who participated and supported the event! Stay tuned for more exciting events on the horizon!
