The annual Town Green Tennis Club end of season American Doubles Tournament will take place 2pm Sunday 20th September at the Winifred Lane tennis courts in Aughton. The format will be the same as in previous years with prizes awarded for the successful pairs.
For newer members the tournament is an ideal way to get to know people at the club. It is a friendly format where players rotate partners and the winner is determined by the total number of games won during the afternoon. Everyone has a chance to pick up some games.
Hopefully the weather will be fine on the day!
As summer arrives in West Lancashire it’s that time of year again for the Lancashire Best Kept Village awards. Once again Aughton has entered and has high hopes of receiving an award. This competition has proved popular over the years and helps villages like Aughton maintain their own identity from the larger town of Ormskirk.
More recently it seems that the categories have been slimmed down somewhat, which is a shame as it appears there is no longer a separate award for the best kept playing field. There was a time when the William Arnold Silcock Memorial Playing Field – home of the Town Green Tennis Club regularly picked up this award.
This didn’t come as surprise to Club members as the playing field and its amenities are scrupulously maintained by the Council and the sports clubs who use the facility. It’s difficult to imagine a more pleasing environment for sporting activity.
Judging started on the 6th of June and needless to say it would be helpful if the Village and the playing field was looking at its best over the next few weeks.
NOTE The Town Green Tennis Club has played at the William Arnold Silcock Memorial Playing Field for over 30 years. It can be found on Winifred Lane, Aughton about 2 miles south of Ormskirk.
It probably wont come as a surprise that the Junior Tennis Summer Camp which was due to start on Monday 27th has had to be delayed due to weather.and will now start on Wednesday (tomorrow).
The forecast for Ormskirk and West Lancashire seems to be improving so hopefully the Juniors will have better weather for the three days of tennis fun.
