Jackie Twitchett’s Isle of Wight Challenge 2017

One of our members, Jackie Twitchett, recently took part in the Isle of Wight Challenge 2017, to walk 106km around the Isle of Wight in support of Cancer Research UK!

Read how she got on:

 

Hi Everyone

Challenge completed!

Whole team made it home with Gem coming 1st Lady home in the two day event followed by Nic who was the fourth lady home. Myself, Hayley, Hope and Sam came in a respectable 56-59th respectively as a team. Exhausted but pleased with my time 106k in 21.58 hours.

A great team event and for me a personal high. Loved it. Now is mainly about rest and letting my feet and blisters heal. All worth it though and our chosen charities all receiving such generous contributions is the icing on the cake.

Thank you everyone for all your support. When I was low your support and messages of encouragement got me through. There is still time to donate as my JustGiving Page is still up and running – see link below.

A very tired but happy bunny Jax xx

 

It’s not too late to support her. Her JustGiving page is still active if you wish to donate.

Well done Jax!

2016 Club Tournament Finals Day

The Club Tournament Finals Day is being held this coming Saturday 10th September, with matches starting at 12pm.

The mens and ladies singles will kick off the day at 12pm, followed by the mixed doubles at approximately 2pm, and the mens and ladies doubles finals at approximately 4pm.

The bar will be open and there will be homemade cakes available throughout the day and a BBQ from 4pm, so please come along, support the club and enjoy what’s sure to be some fantastic tennis.

Perimeter Fencing

The perimeter fences around the courts are due to be replaced soon. Until this happens, steel poles have been fixed temporarily to the bottom of some fencing to keep the fence flat and prevent balls escaping onto the river bank. All members are advised to take extra care at the back of courts where these poles are fitted.

Net Post Scorers

Three net post scorers have been purchased by the club and are available for use in matches, so spectators can follow the match and know what the score is. They are currently in the bar lobby, so if you don’t have a key just ask a committee member prior to your match who can make them available.
