Last Sunday, September 26, we had a Family Doubles Tournament with about fifty players in a very good atmosphere and great conviviality.
It was a very good experience which gave rise to some very nice tennis and human encounters. Read on to see some pictures of the day.
We will be holding a Family Doubles tennis tournament on Sunday 26 September. The tournament and buffet (bring whatever you want) will run from 12 noon to 2.30 pm. Sign up here. Read on for the poster.
We are delighted to announce that the renovation of Court 3 has now been completed.
This has been a multi-step, 7-month process, led from start to finish by Raphaël Kahane, in coordination with the Tennis Committee.
We can now play on a state-of-the-art artificial surface (with a 10-year warranty). We look forward to receiving your feedback, so please grab your rackets and give it a try.
To maintain our new surface, please do not forget to drag the court after each game and, if the weather is very dry, to water the court (just like a regular clay court).
Thanks are due to all involved in the planning and execution of this major project for our Club. Read on for more details and a couple of pictures.
