On the Sunday afternoon following Wimbledon finals day, Hemyock Tennis Club held its own version of the great event with a mixed doubles tournament followed by champagne, strawberries, tea and cakes.

The sun shone brightly as 20 couples battled it out for the top spot, with the triumphant winners each getting a bottle of wine. Everyone agreed it was a lovely way to spend the afternoon and warm thanks went to the organiser, Sue, and to Anne, who looked after the refreshments. Hemyock Tennis Club has 3 new courts (two with floodlights), a pavilion, a ball machine and a resident coach and welcomes new members. For more information about joining this friendly club, please contact Sue Lambert (01823 680664) or Julie Steed (01823 680787). For more information about coaching (eg junior coaching week in the summer holidays) please contact Dan Loftus (07525 187452).

Cheers!  The participants celebrate.
