What is going on at Bubwith Tennis Club in 2019…
Our main fundraising event for 2019 will be on Saturday, May 18th from 1pm. Bright Ideas For Tennis, a tennis charity organisation, will be coming along to Bubwith Tennis Club to do coaching sessions for all ages of children and for adults too as well as team players. Two Fed Cup or Davis Cup players will be with us all afternoon, culminating in an exhibition match with two of our best players. Watch this space for more information.
This event will raise money solely for our tennis club, to keep our facilities at a high standard and to encourage more children to play.
September End of Season Handicap Tournament :
On Saturday, 22nd September, Bubwith Tennis Club held their End of Season Handicap Tournament. Heats were played in the morning and then in the afternoon, the final took place about 4pm. We had exciting, fun tennis all day and what a close match the final was. Anne Wottge and Liam Moore (Left side) – also in the final last year – had a brilliant run on points, but were then pipped at the post by the eventual winners – Shirley Leak and Dave Courfield (Right side). Congratulations to them both. Over 20 members and partners attended the evening supper at The White `Swan at Bubwith, many thanks to Clare for providing us with a delicious spread.
