Congratulations to our 2017 Champions

Ladies Doubles:

After some hard fought sets Ann Walker and Sue Newell emerged as worthy winners.  The runners-up were Brenda Levitt and Emma Fox

Men's Doubles:

The Men's title went to Michael Clarke and Keith Glenn.  This was an absorbing contest which resulted in a tie-break in which Jon Dilena and Peter Barker had 2 match points.  Refusing to give in, Michael and Keith managed to save the match points and went on to win.  This final was watched by the ladies whose tournament had finished and was very much enjoyed.  The tea which followed both finals was, as usual, excellent.

Thanks go to Sonia Glenn for her hard work in organising all of our tournaments with superb efficiency.

Davis Cup Legacy Tennis for Kids

In 2015 the British Davis Cup Team wrote their names in history by winning the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas for the first time in 79 years. In achieving this incredible feat, they presented everyone who loves tennis with a unique opportunity to make a difference and grow the game!

Growing the game means investing in the grass roots and this means kids. We’re passionate about helping as many kids as possible try tennis and the Tennis For Kids campaign is just one of the ways we’re doing this.

Corsley Tennis Club participated in this programme and Jon Dilena and Michael Clarke hosted our free 6 week course for 5-7 year olds.
