New season – dates announced!

Tennis racquets and ballsFebruary might seem very early to be discussing plans for summer tennis – but it is a key month in the local tennis calendar. Work starts in earnest when Town Green representatives attend both the Southport and Liverpool Tennis Group fixture meetings where our teams play league tennis. Then Clubs will host their own Committee meetings to organise events, purchase balls and agree court time for the season.

The first three confirmed dates are always first club night, coaching and our early season American Tournament and once we have these agreed it feels like the season is underway. This year the dates are

Coaching – usual format with Bill’s popular Saturday mornings starting 1st April

Junior Tennis Camp – delayed start due to weather

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.
