We had our first match in the Slazenger League last Wednesday. Unfortunately the result didn’t go our way, but we were able to put out a team and have a number of players interested for the next game which is encouraging.

Coaching Corner
We are so very lucky at St Columbas Tennis Club that through our Club Coach, David James, we can offer such a varied programme of coaching all year long for both adults and juniors. It includes both adults turn up group and workshops and a full junior coaching programme during both junior term time and holidays to cater for all.

For all details on David’s coaching please view the 3 attachments – Adult coaching, Junior coaching and Holiday camp coaching or visit the website; http://www.stcolumbastennis.co.uk/coaching/ or contact David directly on debdavidjamestennis@tiscali.co.uk or call him on 0208 428 6042.

Daytime tennis
A few members have suggested that it would be useful to have a ‘managed’ list of players who are available to play on week days, in order that anyone wanting a game during the day would know whom to contact. Joe Mannion has agreed to coordinate such a list so if you are interested please send Joe details of the day or days you are likely to be free together with your contact details. His email address is ‘joseph.mannion211@btinternet.com’ and we have already had some interest.
