After the downpour on Sunday morning we thought all our planning and preparation was for nothing, when something unexpectedly happened for Scotland in May, the sun started to shine, and by the end of the day a good number of people, of all ages, turned out to our Try Tennis day and over £300 was raised for club funds. We’d like to thank everyone who donated raffle prizes, food, time and facilities and equally, thanks to those who turned up, bought raffle tickets, ate food and even played tennis as we couldn’t have done it without either of you. Although the fundraising aspect is important it was really about raising awareness of the game, and club, and we hope to see some new members as a result, but just getting the courts used more often would be a positive result and from my perspective, getting an opportunity to eat, drink (sadly just tea) and play Tennis in the sun on a Sunday afternoon made it all worthwhile.
Oh, and remember Tennis Express is on for the next 5 weeks on Tuesday, 9.30-10.30am at no cost to participants.
Best wishes, Keith (I was the one with President written on my back)
