New Nets
If you haven’t tried them out yet, you’re in for a treat! Unfortunately the wind seems to have loosened the centre ties and we may resort to stowing them in the locker bench to protect them. Also we want to tie them up with bungy cords to prevent fraying, though it is proving difficult to get all parties to agree to this.

2 lights are currently out of action, one on court 1 and one on court 3. The CRA are investigating the most economical way to replace them.

CTC Summer Tournament
We will shortly be finalising the entrants and making the draws for this years club tournament. If you have not already indicated that you wish to enter please can you let Andy know a.s.a.p. ( or 0183782169). Finals day is 7th September. Just a reminder that the tournament entry fee is a one off £4, which covers all entries.

Desperately seeking someone to help with the Chulmleigh Fair Tennis Tournament on Thursday 24th July. Also needed are members to turn up and promote the club on Wednesday 23rd July in the afternoon on the cricket pitch. Phone 01769 580819.
