Last Thursday the mens first team began preparation for a new season with a brisk practice at Winifred Lane. A fine evening saw some full-on tennis with no holding back!
The team will once again be playing in the B division of the Liverpool and District Tennis Group where the level of competitive tennis is very strong.
Matt Birchall the mens first team Captain was hoping for a another successful year. Mens practice will be held every Thursday evening at 6.15 pm until the season starts.
The first Saturday Junior coaching morning of the new season got off to a great start with blue skies and fine weather. The first session for 5 to 8 year olds was to improve tennis skills and have fun hitting some balls. The second session starting at 11.30 saw older juniors enjoying improving their tennis skills in a match situation.
Bill Dow, our Club Coach who runs the sessions described the weather as being “glorious” and that it was an excellent start to the season. These sessions run from April to October and are also open to non members.The details can be found by clicking here

The Clocks go forward and everyone knows that the tennis season now starts in earnest! The junior coaching at the Club is not left behind and we are pleased to announce that Bill Dow’s popular Saturday morning coaching will begin this Saturday the 6th of April at the Winifred Lane Courts. As usual there will be two sessions for different age groups.
10.30 – 11.30 for 5 to 8 year olds
11.30 – 12.30 for 9 to 13 year olds
Also, the first of Bill’s popular junior tennis camps will run from 8 – 10 April between 1pm and 4pm. These are great fun and a very enjoyable way to learn and play the game.
Both the Saturday mornings and camps will be run by Bill Dow our long time Community Tennis Coach. These are open to all with pay on the day. You do not need to be a member to attend.

Once again the bi-annual American Tournament was great success with Town Green club members enjoying good weather for the afternoon. Julian organised the event and at the end of the days tennis awarded the prizes to the winners!
The next social event at Town Green is the American Tournament which Julian traditionally organises at the beginning of each season. This year it will be held on Sunday 30th April and will commence at 2pm.
It’s an excellent way for new members to try their hand as players rotate partners so that all players get the chance to play with partners of different ability. It’s also a great level playing field which suits players of all ages and abilities.
There will be prizes for winners and runners-up with light refreshments available. Assuming good weather it is anticipated that the Tournament will end about 5pm. If you want to sign up please contact Julian via email@example.com
Our opening club night was blessed with dry though somewhat blustery weather as we got into our stride for the season. It was good to see that a number of prospective tennis players joined us for the evening and hopefully they will have been encouraged to visit us again.
Now the season starts in earnest with teams preparing for the start of fixtures in the Southport and Liverpool leagues. Last Thursday the mens team had a fine evening and got nearly two hours of practice without needing to use the floodlights.
Mens practice session
It was interesting to see that the first floodlight on the third court had already been converted to LED. It’s not easy to see, but the old sodium light fitting has been removed and replaced. Such is the technology nowadays, the new LED lights don’t actually look like lights at all. Hopefully the weather will allow the conversion of the remaining lights before matches begin.
