We were blessed with beautiful weather for our GBTW Open Day
As a consequence, we attracted record numbers of people ( 100+) with all 6 courts being used fully throughout the day.

The addition of a more targeted Social media campaign has obviously paid dividends; along with the help of club members and parents in ensuring that leaflets and posters were placed in all the right locations.
We very much appreciate the time invested.

Special thanks to all the volunteers on the day - especially Veronica and Renalie in the kitchen; Lucian and Laura with the BBQ: ,the coaching team of Chris, Callum and Donna and the welcome cake contributions from Carol and Alex !

Whilst Alan, Geoff, Mark , John and Sandra ensured that all attendees were met and placed on court with the requisite equipment.

Overall, we made a small profit and hopefully, we will have persuaded a few people to join the Club.
Look out for them on Club evenings.
Our next GBTW is 22nd July. Put the date in your diary.
